August 2018: Several members of Nanostencil are at the 3M Nano conference in China and Professor Erkki Levanen presented a keynote talk.

April 2019: the Nanostencil project has been meeting in San Sebastian to discuss year 2 project objectives.

October 2019: The Nanostencil project is meeting in Tampere and after a traditional Sauna has been enjoying Finnish hospitality.

February 2020: NanoStencil will be at the SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco, 4 – 6 Feb 2020. We would be pleased to meet you there. Please see our papers and watch our presentations (SPIE subscription required). On look for downloads from the ‘publications’ section

June 2020: NanoStencil will be at LPM 2020 in Dresden 22-25th June 2020. West 4 – 6 Feb 2020. We would be pleased to meet you there. We have special session where we will give a project overview “In-situ Laser Interference Patterning for the production of regular arrays of Nanostructures (progress on the EU project ‘Nanostencil’) on  Thursday (25.06.2020) and many other presentations from the partners which will give more detail. We also have a booth shared with Innolas at the exhibition. If you are interested in our project, feel free to drop by

June 2020: Unfortunately, LPM 2020 has become an on-line event but we are still resenting, remotely, via the website. We have a poster explaining out work which you can download here.

June 2020: Download our overview presentation from the LPM2020 conference here. 

September 2020: Nanostencil is (virtually) at the MSE congress(see  https://live.mse-congress.de) with Innolas at the exhibition. Please drop by and speak to use or browse the project info.

September 2020: The consortium has been very busy writing publications. Please review and download our latest achievements in the ‘publications’ section.
