Tutorial: Surface Analysis for Lighting Technologies
Date: Wednesday 25th May 2011
Venue: Loughborough Surface Analysis Ltd,
Pegasus House, Prince William Road Loughborough, Leics LE11 5GU
To maintain a competitive edge in the modern lighting sector, manufacturers must respond rapidly to the research and development requirements of an expanding market, production issues and customer and end-user related problems. When the issues are material related it is important to use the most appropriate analytical techniques to get the right answers fast. If the problems are associated with the composition or chemistry of the surface or near-surface region, then the traditionally used techniques of optical microscopy, electron microscopy or EDX/ EDAX will probably not provide the solution. In such circumstances, you need surface analysis and depth profiling.
Loughborough Surface Analysis Ltd (LSA) and Midlands Surface Analysis (MSA), in association with Electronics Sensors Photonics KTN are organizing a one-day tutorial addressing surface analysis and depth profiling techniques and how they can be used to help with a variety of challenges relating to lighting. The tutorial draws upon a wealth of real-world experience in using these techniques to assist with issues such as:
staining • particulates • delamination • surface mechanical properties
corrosion • contamination • impurities surface topography
The tutorial will consist of seminars given by experts in the field on the individual techniques (including case studies), together with practical demonstrations on some of the techniques in the laboratories of LSA.
Who should attend?
This tutorial provides a unique opportunity for research and development engineers, failure analysts, process and design engineers, yield improvement managers and quality control managers to learn about or refresh their knowledge of surface analytical and depth profiling techniques. If you have the task of solving the material related problems when they arise then this is the tutorial for you.
Cost & Registration
The delegate rate is £30 which includes all refreshments and handouts.
