The 14th UK J A Woollam Ellipsometry Seminar will be held on Wednesday 1st October 2014 at The Nottingham Belfry Hotel and Conference Centre.

This seminar is aimed at both experienced ellipsometry users as well as people new to ellipsometry.

The format of the day will include a short introduction in ellipsometry, to show the present status of applications and research. With sample measurements we will demonstrate the power of the Woollam spectroscopic ellipsometers.

As part of this workshop we will be introducing a brand new product from Woollam, called RC2®

The RC2® design builds on 25 years of experience. It combines the best features of previous models with innovative new technology: dual rotating compensators, achromatic compensator design, advanced light source and next-generation spectrometer design. The RC2® is a near-universal solution for the diverse applications of spectroscopic ellipsometry.

On the day we will have both the new flagship RC2® and the entry level alpha-SE® ellipsometers present and we will be providing demonstrations of both ellipsometers.

Ellipsometry allows very sensitive measurements of film thickness, optical constants, composition, surface and interface roughness and many more.

Nowadays it is not only a tool for research and you will recognise an increase of applications close to the production. This requirement had been addressed by the development of several in-situ solutions for process monitoring and control.

There will be a complimentary lunch provided on the day as well as all day refreshments.

Delegate places are strictly limited, so early registration is advised.
