The UK Surface Analysis Forum (UKSAF) is a society for scientists from academia and industry with a common interest in the techniques and applications of surface analysis. It meets twice yearly, in January and July, to discuss the latest research and issues of interest to the surface analysis community and to exchange views on current trends. In addition to these regular meetings the group collaborates with other scientific and industrial groups to promote and communicate the vital role played by surface analysis in both industry and academia.

Although the society is based in the UK, membership is open to all and we encourage participants from institutions outside the UK. To join the group, simply register and attend the next meeting, and opt to pay the one-off non-member supplement.

We are always keen to hear from researchers using surface analytical tools and especially about new advances in techniques and methods.  If you are interested in speaking at one of our meetings please contact the UKSAF secretary (emily.smith@nottingham.ac.uk) or any committee member with an overview/abstract so this can be considered for future meetings.

Next Meeting

The scope of the meeting will cover the measurement of the properties of coating (e.g. composition, topography, crystallinity) deposited onto any substrate type including the interface region with the substrate itself.
