Conference: RSD 2017

At the beginning of December 2017, University of West Bohemia organized 16th International Conference on Reactive Sputter Deposition (RSD). The conference took place in Angelo hotel in Pilsen (Czech Republic), where our group presented 3 oral presentations (by prof. Vašina, dr. Souček and dr. Hnilica) and 7 posters. The conference was established by science group DRAFT from the Ghent University in 2000.
