History, Scope & Topics


The Surface Science Symposium has taken place since 2014, gathering an increasing number of scientists from all over the world. The 4th edition, which will take place in Linz (Austria) from September 13th - 17th 2021, follows the previous workshops held in Vienna (2014) Salzburg (2016), Innsbruck (2018)  [List of history, öffnet eine externe URL in einem neuen Fenster]


The aim of this workshop is to provide a platform to present new advances and developments in ellipsometric application, science, and technology and related methods of metrology as well as to encourage interdisciplinary research.

The topics discussed at the symposium are intended to span from science to industrial applications. Contributions from a wide field of surface science applications are welcome.

This workshop will provide a platform for young researchers to exchange experiences and gain knowledge on basics of raman spectroscopy and related methods as well as on a wide field of surface science applications.

The workshop character will be accentuated for the following elements:

A session "Latest news and Open Problems" will take place where very recent results which are currently not fully understood, unresolved but interesting problems related to spectroscopy & ellipsometry technique and data interpretation, and questions of ellipsometric terminology and standardisation can be discussed. Furthermore this session shall provide the opportunity to explore new fields of ellipsometry applications. Here, especially contributions of young scientists are welcome. The oral sessions will contain short talks with a lot of time for discussion.

Secondly, all speakers are encouraged to present their talk also as a poster in order to initiate further discussion at the poster sessions.

The posters will be shown all the time during the Symposium.
