5th XPS Workshop at KIT

June 22-24, 2016

X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) is a widely used analysis technique, which provides quantitative, chemical state information for surfaces and interfaces. Leading international scientists and industry experts will report on a range of important topics such as polymer surfaces, cluster depth profiling, bio-interfaces, Li-ion batteries, catalysis, corrosion, and new instrument developments. Moreover, the importance of adjacent techniques to support XPS analysis will be introduced, such as Raman, REELS, and He ion microscopy. The workshop is free of charge but registration is required until 15th June.
