Second FRIENDS2 workshop “Advanced coating and characterization techniques” at HZDR September, 19-20th 2016
On 19th and 20th September 2016 the workshop “Advanced coating and characterization techniques” took place at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf. It was organized by the Institute for Ion Beam Physics and Material Research as the second workshop within our EU-RISE project. 15 young scientists from 9 institutions from 4 countries received training on advanced methods for the analysis and deposition of thin functional coatings for solar thermal and photovoltaic energy conversion. Methodically, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, ellipsometry, optical absorption spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction were treated. The program included a balanced proportion of lectures and practical exercises in small groups. In this way the participants could apply the acquired knowledge immediately and hands-on at the institute’s modern experimental end stations. Due to the positive response for the concept, the workshop is to be organized again in 2 years. The complete program and the lectures given in the workshop can be found in the documents section of the web page.
