ICMCTF 2015: 



AVS International Symposium and Exhibition


The ASED runs its own technical program at the annual AVS International Symposium under the Surface Engineering (SE) topic. Most "hot" topics of surface engineering are a prime focus of this program, which, therefore, changes every year reflecting the pulsation of the ASED community's interests. Presently these are: Glancing Angle Deposition, Atmospheric Pressure Plasmas, Pulsed Plasmas in Surface Engineering, Hard and Nanostructured Coatings, Surface Engineering for Thermal Management and Soft Nanostructured Films for Biomedical Applications
