In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

The Atomic Force Microscope - 30 years of development in nanoscience
(KTH Applied Physics)
30 years ago the Scanning Tunnelling Microscope (STM) received the Nobel Prize in Physics, the same year that the Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) first appeared in the literature. Both are examples of scanning probe microscopes and the AFM has proved to have much broader impact. With its ability to explore a tremendous variety of material surfaces and tip-surface interactions (anything that gives rise to a force), to work in many different types of environments (vacuum, gas, liquid), as well as it’s low cost and its ease of use, the AFM has played a leading role in the development of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The inventors of the AFM received the 2016 Kavli Prize for Nanoscience this year in Oslo. The AFM also offers the opportunity to explore and exploit some very interesting properties of nonlinear dynamical systems, currently at the heart of the development of analytical AFM. The talk will review the history and cover some of the recent developments of the AFM.
