International Symposium on Reactive Sputter Deposition 2008

  Ghent, Belgium - 17 - 20 Nov 2008


The 2008 version of the international Symposium on Reactive Sputter Deposition was held in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Thin Films, and hosted in Ghent from 17-20 November 2008. Around 400 attendees enjoyed 4 days of high-level scientific presentations in a beautiful surrounding!

More information can be found on the website of ICTF14.
