Keithley holds Nano Days virtual conference April 24-26

Cleveland, Ohio – March 27, 2007 - Keithley Instruments, Inc. (NYSE:KEI), a leader in solutions for emerging measurement needs, announces Nano Days, a unique, on-line nanotechnology educational event from April 24 through April 26, 2007. During this virtual conference, the theme of which is VISUALIZE, CHARACTERIZE, REALIZE: The Future of Nanotechnology, leading researchers from academia and business leaders from industry will present cutting edge measurement technology for nanoscale devices and materials. There is no charge to attend the three-day event.

Six live audio/visual seminars will be held during Nano Days. Two back-to-back seminars will be held each day of the three-day conference. Each seminar is approximately 45 minutes long and includes interactive question and answer during each seminar. Seminar topics and presenters include:

  • Advanced particle beam methods for nano-characterization and analysis
    Dr. Jens Greiser, FEI Company
  • In-situ correlation of mechanical properties, deformation behavior and electrical characteristics of materials using conductive nano-identification
    Ryan C. Major, Ph.D., Sr. Staff Scientist, Hysitron, Inc.
  • How to avoid self-heating effects on nanoscale devices
    Jonathan Tucker, Keithley Instruments, Inc.
  • Give your microscope a hand: Characterization of nanostructures
    G. Frayne, S. Kleindiek, B. Volbert, Kleindiek Nanotechnik
  • Electronic properties of zinc-blende wurtzite biphasic GaN nanowires and nanoFETs
