Iliyan Karadzhov, early-stage researcher of the NANO-GLASS project (ESR1), attended the 69th American Vacuum Society (AVS) International Symposium & Exhibition. The event was held at Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon, between 5-10 November 2023. Karadzhov presented a poster in the Advanced Surface Engineering section. The poster, entitled “Multifunctional optical surfaces using scalable nanostructuring”, offered an overview of his present Individual Research Project (IRP), focused on finding new ways to nanotexture optical glass to confer several useful properties on it at once. Besides presenting the poster, the ESR1 was able to attend talks on spectroscopic ellipsometry, thin films, surface science and technology.
