“I arrived at the CompleteEASE workshop on 13th September with little knowledge of the theory of spectroscopic ellipsometry and very little experience of fitting and analysing ellipsometry data. By the first day, I had developed a thorough understanding of the physics of spectroscopic ellipsometry and how the J. A. Woollam ellipsometers work to collect data for determining film properties such as the thickness and optical constants, thanks to the great communication skills of Andrew Martin and Jeremy van Derslice.

The 3-day course went on to bolster this, with plenty of examples for us to try for ourselves, which was key to gaining a better understanding of the fitting methods available to use in CompleteEASE. The methods of fitting, namely when to use a Cauchy layer, a B-spline and a Gen Osc model etc. were explained in detail, again with practical examples, as practice makes perfect seems a very apt statement for determining how best to fit different data.

The course was not only thorough and helpful but fun and engaging. I truly feel that my time and money was well spent and that I had advanced my knowledge of ellipsometry significantly. The venue of Nottingham Trent University was a good location and provided a good service and the people from Quantum Design UK & Ireland were also very helpful and friendly and did a great job of organising the course and events. In addition to this, the course included a dinner which allowed for course members and organisers to meet and network, which was fantastic and good connections were made!

Special thanks to Andrew and Jeremy for doing a great job of providing a useful and captivating course that explained everything clearly. Also thanks to Shayz and Angela for organising and helping everything run smoothly, and everyone at Nottingham Trent University for their support and providing a great service.

It was great to meet everyone and I highly recommend this course!”
