Online Workshop: Electrical Material Parameters and Impedance Measurement Techniques

SAVE THE DATE of 28 October 2020! You will indeed be able to download our video presentations about "Electrical Material Parameters and Impedance Measurement Techniques in MMAMA"

Manufacturing industry is putting more and more complicated materials and material systems onto the market. These are new semiconductor materials, composites, organic semiconductors, and many other ones. Knowing the electromagnetic parameters of these materials are the basis for product development. The effective extracted material parameters are used in microwave simulations and design but also, the spatially resolved material measurements are required to progress the material science. This workshop will show recent developments in highly precise material measurements for bulk materials and measurements with spatial resolution down to 20nm. The workshop includes live presentations of material measurement systems.

The workshop consists of a set of screencasts which are accessible under

Chairs: Dr. Johannes Hoffmann and Dr. Toai Le Quang, METAS, Switzerland
