New : Participant list

This is the sixth of a series of Rencontres de Moriond devoted to Mesoscopic Quantum Physics 

                        I.    Coulomb and interference effects in small electronic structures - 1994 

                        II.    Correlated fermions and transport in mesoscopic systems - 1996 

                        III.    Quantum physics at the mesoscopic scale - 1999 

                        IV.    Electronic correlations : from meso- to nano-physics – 2001

                        V.    Quantum information and decoherence in nanosystems - 2004

                        VI.    Quantum transport and Nanophysics –2008

see also : 

                        I. Nanophysics : from fundamentals to applications – 2006 (Vietnam)

 The 2008 session will focus on the rapidly developing fields of charge and spin transport in graphene and two-dimensionnal systems, quantum dots, quantum wires, carbon nanotubes, molecules, superconducting and ferromagnetic hybrid structures and dots. Special emphasize will be put on the dynamical properties in relation with quantum-preparation, -manipulation, -coherence and -detection of simple systems.
