You are cordially invited to participate in the sixth International Conference “Ion Implantation and Other Applications of Ions and Electrons”, ION 2006. The Conference will be held in Kazimierz Dolny, Poland, from June 26 to June 29, 2006.

The Conference will review the current state of knowledge in the field of ion and electron interaction with solids. It will give the opportunity to present interesting results and new trends in the application of ions for the investigation of solid surface layers and modification of their physical and chemical properties.

The following topics are covered by the Conference:

  • ion implantation and sputtering,
  • fundamentals of ion and electron beam interactions with solids,
  • plasma processing of materials,
  • mass spectrometry and its applications
  • ion beam analysis,
  • unconventional applications of ion and electron beams,
  • new developments in ion beam equipment,

The diversity is a great advantage of the Conference since it offers the unique opportunity to stimulate open discussion and exchange of experience and ideas between researchers. Therefore we would like to invite physicists, materials scientists, engineers, and other specialists to take part in the Conference.


The official language of the Conference is English.
