About SSPro 2019

God made the bulk; the Surface was invented by devil” -W. Pauli

Surfaces, particularly in crystalline solids, are discontinuities in the periodic arrangement of atoms and hence the biggest defects in solids. A lot of processes take place on surfaces and interfaces, which affect the electronic properties of solids.

IISER-TVM is organizing this winter school in association with Swissnex India, Royal academy of Engineering, UK and Newton-Bhabha Fund.

SSPro-2019 will encompass a series of lectures/workshops by eminent scientists on the frontiers of interdisciplinary surface science research.
