• ICMCTF 2018 - Symposium H. Advanced Characterization Techniques for Coatings and Thin Films, San Diego CA, USA, 23-27 April 2018

    This regular symposium was created two years ago in order to expand the scope of the International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF) to micromechanical and small-scale characterization method, and has enjoyed lasting popularity ever since. The symposium is widely opened to contributions from the fiels of nanoindentation, FIB-Based techniques, TEM, X-Ray methods, Atom Probe Tomography, testing in non-ambient conditions...

    For the upcoming meeting, it will be our pleasure to welcome following invited speakers:

    Daniel Kiener, Montanuniversität Leoben, Austria
    “In-situ Study of Deformation and Fracture Processes in Nanostructured Metals at Elevated Temperatures”

    Karsten Durst, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany
    “Recent Advances in Micro-cantilever In-situ Bending Experiments”

    Megan Cordill, Erich Schmid Institute, Austria
    “In-situ-squared: Combined Electro-mechanical Behavior of Thin Films with One Experiment”

    Suneel Kodambaka, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
    “In-situ Nanomechanical Characterization of Transition Metal Carbides” 

    You are welcome to submit a contribution in one of our three sessions:

    H1. Spatially-resolved Characterization of Thin Films and Engineered Surfaces

    H2. Advanced Mechanical Testing of Surfaces, Thin Films, and Coatings

    H3. Characterization of Coatings in Harsh Environments

    Submissions are opened until October 1, 2017 at:
