Our company participated in the MNE conference. G. Papavieros presented orally his work with the title Mathematical and computational metrology of multiscale and hierarchical surfaces. The abstract of this work:
Multiscale hierarchical surface structures have attracted great interest during the last decades, since they provide the ability to enhance surface properties and exhibit multifunctionality. In modern micro-nanotechnology though and despite their extensive use, there are several open questions concerning their quantitative and mathematical characterization, challenging their structural metrology. More specifically, a theoretical framework of classification and deeper understanding of the hierarchy and multiscalability, is missing when these concepts are applied in surface morphologies. In this work we address these issues and provide a systematic and thorough mathematical and computational approach to the characterization and modeling of hierarchical and multiscale surfaces.
