Workshop "Synchrotron Radiation to study Atomic Layer Deposition" 13th-15th June 2016

Workshop "Synchrotron Radiation to study Atomic Layer Deposition" 13th-15th June 2016. Save the date! For more information visit the page: https://indico.cells.es/indico/event/63/



The synchrotron facility ALBA, in Barcelona (Spain) and HERALD are organizing the first workshop on Synchrotron Radiation (SR) and ALD.

The high brilliance of a SR light source enables to study the atomic structure of matter as well as its properties. SR-based spectroscopic, scattering, and diffraction techniques are usually quiet fast and have a high degree of accuracy, precision and sensitivity. Therefore, they are very well suited to study ALD growth. However, until now, the use of SR to study ALD has remained a niche activity of a few groups, mostly because of technical obstacles, the limited availability of beam-time and/or issues concerning the use of certain precursors at synchrotron facilities. 

The workshop will take place at ALBA in June 2016 (more information here: https://indico.cells.es/indico/event/63/). Abstract submission will be opened in January 2016. Fee rates will be low for students, in order to facilitate their participation.
