PCSI41 Santa Fe lecture

The 41st Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Surfaces and Interfaces (PCSI-41) was held at La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico from January 12 through 16.

The annual PCSI conference is devoted to achieve a fundamental understanding of the physical, chemical, biological, structural, optical, magnetic and electrical properties of surfaces and interfaces. These studies include novel growth processes and interfacial phenomena, new characterization tools, transport, and functionality of the structures for future devices.

Generous amounts of discussion time were included in the program in order to emphasize the workshop character and to stimulate the exchange of new ideas.

As an invited speaker, Volker Rose gave the opening presentation in a special session on “New Imaging and Spectroscopy Tools”.
