3rd NanoCharm Workshop on Non-Destructive Real Time Process Control

The 3rd NanoCharm Workshop on Non-Destructive Real Time Process Control took place between the 13 - 15 October, 2010 at the Technical University of Berlin in Germany.


General Purpose

The NanoCharM consortium aims to identify expertise and to establish a platform on the application of ellipsometry and polarimetry for the characterization of a large variety of nanomaterials and related devices. Beyond doubt, a major advantage of these methods is, among many other aspects, the possibility to study and monitor growth processes or preparation steps. It is the combination of the very high sensitivity to ultra thin film optical and (nano-)structural properties, the fact that optical methods can be used in many different environments, the possibility of a real time data acquisition and the minimal impact to the object under investigation, which makes ellipsometry and polarimetry an ideal tool for in-line and in-situ characterization needs. Accordingly meanwhile, these methods are widely used in scientific as well as industrial areas. The scope of the workshop was to identify and discuss new developments and demands in the community.

The workshop was sponsored by NanoCharM project, therefore there was no registration fee.

Preliminary Program

The Workshop will be hosted by Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, in the Eugene-Paul-Wigner-Building in the center of Berlin. Hardenbergstrasse 36, D-10623 Berlin, Germany

Travel Directions

The Technische Universität located close to the train station Zoo and easily accessible.

By car:

* Coming from the north - Hamburg/Rostock (A24 autobahn):
At the motorway junction Oranienburg take the A111 to Berlin Zentrum, and at the motorway junction Charlottenburg turn onto the A 100. Leave at the Kaiserdamm exit, and turn left at the end of the slip road to turn onto the Kaiserdamm boulevard (later Bismarckstrasse). Continue over the traffic island into Strasse des 17 Juni, and the Main Building of the TU Berlin is on your right after 100 yards.

* From Hannover (A2) and Leipzig, Nuremberg:
Take the motorway A10 (Berlin Ring) to the Drewitz motorway junction, then the AVUS (A 115) to Berlin-Zentrum. At the Funkturm follow the signs to Wedding, but then take the first exit to Kaiserdamm. Turn left at the end of the slip road to turn onto the Kaiserdamm boulevard (later Bismarckstrasse). Continue over the traffic island into Strasse des 17 Juni, and the Main Building of the TU Berlin is on your right after 100 yards.

By rail:

At Central station take a regional train (RE1, RE2, RE7, RB10, RB14) or S-Bahn  (S5, S7, S75, S9) to Zoologischer Garten. The main campus is only a five minute walk from Zoologischer Garten railway station. You can also take a Bus (M45, 245 oder X9) or the U-Bahn (Line 2) to Ernst Reuter Platz.

By Airplane (Berlin has two airports):

* Tegel:
The airport is very close to the Main Campus. Take the airport shuttle bus (X9) to Ernst-Reuter Platz (15 minutes) or take a taxi (10 minutes).

* Schönefeld:
This is across the city, so a taxi is expensive unless you can share the costs. Take a 171 bus to S-Bahnhof Schönefeld, then take a regional train (RE7, destination Dessau) or S-Bahn (Line 9, destination Westkreuz) to Zoologischer Garten. From there you can walk down Hardenbergstrasse (five minutes), take a bus (M45, 245, or X9), or take the U-Bahn (Line 2, destination Ruhleben) one station to Ernst Reuter Platz. As an alternative you can also go the underground station Rudow (by bus 171), and from there take the Line 7 (destination Rathaus Spandau) to Bismarckstrasse, then change onto the Line 2 (destination Pankow) and travel two stops to Ernst Reuter Platz. Both options take about an hour.
