All Day

This three-day programme is comprised of site tours, case studies, roundtables and targeted discussions. The agenda will follow the Chatham House Rule; all participants by virtue of participation agree that anyone who comes to a meeting is free to use information from the discussion but is not allowed to name the person who made any particular comment. This increases openness of discussion.

Royce Training: Thin-Film Deposition
06
March

06 March 2024 - 08 March 2024
All Day

This course will introduce thin-film deposition and analytical techniques for characterising thin films. The content explores physical vapour deposition techniques, and will cover deposition parameters, structural characterisation and the electrical behaviour of a simple device. Practical training will cover basic lab skills for working with the ultra-high-vacuum environments needed for high quality thin film growth. Through use of the Royce Deposition System participants will gain hands-on experience of, sputtering, molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and pulsed laser deposition (PLD). Each participant will grow and characterise their own samples, including taking measurements of film thickness and surface morphology. The course will also include a short session on cleanroom fabrication to make a microscale wire from a thin film.

UK SPM/AFM Users Meeting 2024
16 January 2024 - 17 January 2024    
All Day
Bruker invite all researchers using or interested in Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) techniques to join Bruker, The University of Manchester, and an exciting panel of guest speakers to this year's 2024 SPM/AFM Users Meeting.
EASI-STRESS Webinar: Residual stress analysis by the contour method
19 January 2024    
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The contour method is a technique for destructively quantifying the residual stress in metallic components stemming from processing inputs. While the requirements for employing this technique are fairly minimal as it often requires only electro discharge machining and metrology facilities, the experimental and analysis aspects are non-trivial. In this presentation, the experimental aspects which need to be considered as well as analytical paradigms will be described.
Royce Training: Practical Cleanroom Skills - Created in partnership by the Universities of Leeds and Cambridge, and Swansea University
