The annual European Conference on Surface Science 2016 was held in our home town Grenoble this year. A great opportunity for us to try for the first time live demonstrations of ion beams, and to have everybody on the Polygon Physics team visit the exhibition. Although it turned out that our demonstrated product was a bit out of the scope of the conference, our presence was very worthwhile. We learnt a lot at this conference that will help us further develop our products and acquired several high quality leads.
