Emerging Technologies in Vacuum Science

Wednesday 14th October 2015 | Lounge One, Ricoh Arena, Coventry, CV6 6GE

Introduction

A vacuum environment is essential for many industrial processes and scientific analysis systems. This meeting aims to highlight some of the more recent developments in surface coating and analysis methods which traditionally require vacuum for their operation. Scientists interested in materials analysis, surface treatment, thin films, nanostructural materials drawn from 5 Institute of Physics groups have put together this programme of speakers who will present papers and join a discussion of some of the newer vacuum-based analysis and processing systems.

The proposed new International Standard for the Kilogram may appear to be an unlikely topic for a vacuum meeting but, as it does require a measurement in vacuum, a highly topical paper on this from the National Physical Laboratory is included.

Owing to the multi-disciplinary nature of the applications speakers will introduce their work at a fundamental level so that attendees can gain from their knowledge, ideas and experiences. Delegates will learn about some exciting developments in surface analysis techniques, molecular deposition systems, superconductors, photocatalytic surfaces and phase changes in thin films and will also have ample opportunity to network with like minded individuals.
