Meeting 2nd announcment (pdf)
X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy is a powerful surface analytical tool providing quantitative surface elemental analysis and chemical state information. XPS can also be used to analyse the subsurface regions of a material through the use of angle-resolved analysis, sectioning, cratering and ion beam sputtering. Recent developments in cluster ion beams now mean that organic materials can be sputtered with minimal chemical damage and the combination of these ion beams with XPS has recently become available on commercial instruments. The theme of this meeting is depth profiling with XPS, with a particular focus on cluster ion beam sputter depth profiling.
Our hosts are Newcastle University, established in 1834 as a division of the federal University of Durham; Newcastle University began its independent existence fifty years ago and is now one of the leading UK universities for research and graduate employment. Newcastle University’s nanoLAB houses the UK's National EPSRC XPS Users' Service, NEXUS (http://www.ncl.ac.uk/nanolab/research/themes/nexus/), who are kindly hosting this meeting.
Call for abstracts
The committee invites the submission of abstracts for contributed talks and posters. Students presenting posters will have their meeting fees waived. Please send a one page abstract containing the title of the talk, name of speaker, affiliation and address to: firstname.lastname@example.org
NEXUS are holding a workshop entitled “Hands-on XPS Data Processing” on Tuesday 2nd July 2013 at the Dove Marine Laboratory, which is located directly on the beach at Cullercoats. Please note you will need to bring your own laptop with you. Participants will need to bring their own packed lunch or alternatively there are a number of cafés and takeaways in the area. The workshop is free to attend for those who attend the UKSAF meeting. Please contact email@example.com
