INTERNATIONAL MEETING ON RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN THE STUDY OF RADIATION
EFFECTS IN MATTER.
Fodele Beach Hotel, Crete, Greece
-11th September, 2008
upon the successful first meeting at Playa del Carmen in Mexico in
December 2006 the second meeting in this series will again concern
itself with the increasing research activity directed towards
the development and understanding of novel synthetic materials with
particular emphasis on their properties at the nano-metric level. In
particular the application of Ion Beams interactions with matter.
As with the previous conference and in an attempt to establish a
tradition with this series we aim to celebrate the contribution of one
of the many people who have played a crucial role in developing this
ever expanding field.
This time we will be organizing the meeting in honour of George Carter
for his contribution to the understanding of atomic collisions in
solids. Along with his co-author, John Colligon, George wrote one of
the first and most cited text
books covering the field - "The Ion
Bombardment of Solids" in 1968. Thanks to his efforts and to the team
he put together at Salford University many people were introduced to
the field and encouraged to participate in and develop contacts and
collaborations in all aspects of ion solid interactions. For more than
30 years many people found themselves at one point or another passing
