About AVS > Chapters, Divisions, & Groups > AVS Divisions > Nanoscale Science and Technology
The technical structure of AVS is organized as a matrix. Members can participate in one or more Divisions or Technical Groups, each of which is focused around a major topical area. Members may also participate in Chapters and Student Chapters, which are regional organizations that focus on local area needs.

Nanoscale Science and Technology

Advancing the Science and Technology of Materials, Interfaces, and Processing

The objectives of the AVS Nanoscale Science and Technology Division are:
  • To provide a continuing forum for the discussion of science involving nanoscale structures
  • To foster technology transfer involving nanometerscale structures
  • To promote the dissemination of knowledge and development in these areas by the organization of meetings and symposia, and by publication of original works and critical reviews in proceedings, technical journals and books
