Surface Analysis - Innovations and Solutions for Industry

Thursday 12th October

What is on the surface? What is the composition? This meeting addresses aspects of Surface Analysis with a special focus on challenges currently being addressed and recent improvements in technologies.

The meeting will look at methods; XPS, SIMS, AES and other surface analysis equipment and instrumentation. Gas Cluster Ion Sources, are these the ideal source enabling better ways to
analyse surfaces? Does this technology open up new applications?

Partnering innovations with high tech industry: This meeting will enable delegates to discuss with leading experts what solutions there are to solve their real-world problem. What developments
are needed? Emerging ideas…


Prof Sven Schroeder, University of Leeds
Near-Ambient Pressure Instrumentation: New Directions for Surface Analysis with XPS and Related Core-Level Spectroscopies.

Other speakers:

Dr Paul Roussel, AWE, UK
Surface analysis in the nuclear industry

Dr David Scurr, University of Nottingham, UK
ToF-SIMS and industrial applications

Adam Bushell, Thermo Fisher Scientific, UK
Meeting materials challenges with correlative analysis


This meeting is an opportunity for you to contribute to research knowledge, to meet with like-minded researchers and to network at a high level.

Our aim is that the main meeting programme is a combination of invited and contributed talks from leaders in this field combined with contributions from students and early career scientists who are
researching novel and exciting new techniques.

We invite contributions for consideration for both the main programme and the poster session.

Poster Prize
A certificate and cheque for up to £100 will also be awarded each day.

This prize is sponsored by Leybold.
