The 71th Gaseous Electronics Conference (GEC) will be held November 5-9 in Portland, OR. GEC is a special meeting of the American Physical Society (APS) Division of Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics (DAMOP), held every year typically in the United States, but participants gather from all over the world. Active discussions are conducted on fundamental research and application about plasma physics. In recent years, it is also a venue to report research on plasma biotechnology, plasma medicine, atmospheric pressure plasma etc.
Tokyo Electron (TEL), which uses plasma technology for etching equipment and film forming equipment, will report three themes.
