Conference: ICMCTF-45

The 45th premier International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF) took place from 22nd – 27th April in the Town & Country Hotel Convention Center in San Diego. Our chair was represented by Dr. James Gibson.

The conference has eight technical and five topical symposia. James Gibson, together with Jeffrey M. Wheeler (ETH Zurich) chaired one of the eight technical symposia addressing the advanced characterization techniques for coatings and thin films.

James held a talk as well. Here he presented fracture testing of transition metal (oxy)nitride coatings, which is a result of a collaborative exchange between S. Rezaei, H. Rueß, M. Hans, D. Music, O. Hunold, S. Wulfinghoff, J.M. Schneider, S. Reese and S. Korte-Kerzel.
