The objective of the workshop is to bring together the (oxide) thin-film and heterostructure community with spectroscopists, as well as experts in the spin-orbital-lattice interplay in correlated oxides, to exchange ideas on how to explore and exploit thin-film approaches in the quest for new quantum phenomena and electronic properties. Talks will be given, for example, on state-of-the-art thin-film growth approaches, sample transfer systems, and in situ spectroscopy techniques, as well as various strategies to combine the best of these research fields. In addition, brainstorming sessions will be organized to explore new possibilities and to exchange ideas on how to circumvent any limitations we now face in the growth and exploitation of novel materials. This workshop is centered around, but not limited to MBE, PLD, strain, interfaces, octahedral rotations, transfer techniques, ARPES, STM, X ray spectroscopies, issues of beam damage, in situ vs. ex situ.
