w Applied Surface Science – IUVSTA

Applied Surface Science

This division focuses on the application of the concepts and tools of surface science to problems in solid state physics and chemistry and materials science and technology. Current emphasis is on characterization of surfaces and interfaces and the quantification of surface analysis techniques. The division also represents IUVSTA on ISO Committee TC201 on Surface Chemical Analysis.

Topics Organization Statutes

Typical Applied Surface Science topics include:

  • Analysis of material surfaces, thin films, interphases, and interfaces
  • Metals, semiconductors, insulators, polymers, and organics
  • Coatings, adhesion, catalysis, corrosion, and wear
  • Grain boundaries, and diffusion
  • Sensors, and electronic devices
  • Biomaterials, and self-assembled monolayers
  • Surface reactions, and contamination
  • Surface treatments, and decomposition
  • Sputtering, and depth profiling
  • Developments in instrumentation and data processing
  • Quantitative surface, depth, and interface analysis
  • Development of reference materials and standards
