The research area of nanophotonics, the study of light at the nanoscale, has experienced a dramatic growth in the recent years. To further advance this field, it is essential to develop novel characterization techniques that are able to generate, probe and control light at length scales far below the diffraction limit of light.

Recently, electron-beam spectroscopies have emerged as powerful probes in nanophotonics research, fueled by the advent of improved microscopes and the exploration of brand new techniques. In particular, taking advantage of the extremely high spatial resolution in electron beam microscopy, novel techniques have appeared that combine the use of electron beams with optical spectroscopy. Cathodoluminescence imaging spectroscopy (CL) and Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS) use high-energy beams in an SEM or TEM. Photoemission Electron Microscopy (PEEM) and Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) enable electron beam spectroscopies to be performed at lower energies and are also becoming increasingly popular to provide insight into optical phenomena at the nanoscale. Electron beam Phase-shaping techniques are now unveiling new properties of optical materials. Photon-induced near-field electron microscopy (PINEM) and newly emerging techniques that combine photon-ebeam interactions are revealing ultrafast phenomena with an unprecedented combination of spectral, spatial, and temporal resolutions.

This workshop aims to review the state-of-the-art in electron spectroscopy for nanophotonics. The 3-day workshop is organized around invited talks of 30 min given by leaders in their field. Contributed talks and poster presentations are open based on submission of an abstract. Abstracts can be submitted to this website before June 1st, 2019. Workshop attendance is limited to 100 attendees. The registration will be open in march. The 250 € fees will cover all coffee breaks, and all lunch on monday, tuesday, wednsday, the dinner of monday and the gala dinner on tuesday. To encourage interactions, all meals will be given in the hall in front of the conference room and close to the poster rooms.
