The conference covers all topics related to characterization of solids and their behavior, including both basic research and technological applications.

Elemental and compound analysis: micro- and nano-analysis, surface and interface analysis, trace analysis

Structural analysis

Chemical reactions in solids and on solid surfaces

Dynamic behavior of solids:
transport phenomena, diffusion, segregation

Application to material science: metals, semiconductors, ceramics, glasses, polymers, composites, nano-structured materials, biomaterials, functional layer systems (micro/nano-electronics, opto-electronics, photonics, adhesive- and anti-adhesive layers, self-assembled layers)

Theoretical and chemometrical aspects

Quality assurance

New instruments & methods


Special Focus

For each edition of the FKA conference we would like to solicite contributions on highly relevant current research topics (see here).
