Practical Tips for Atomic Force Microscopy Imaging and Spectroscopy

HOME CONFERENCE Pre- Congress Workshops Practical Tips for Atomic Force Microscopy Imaging and Spectroscopy

03 - 06 July 2017, Manchester, UK

12:00 - 16:00, Cobden 4, Monday 3 July, Manchester Central

Scientific Organisers: Dr Charles Clifford, Dr Patrick Gunning, Dr Neil Wilson

This workshop will provide an advanced in depth introduction to scanning probe microscopy at a level suitable for graduate students who have started using or developing SPM in their own research, and for experienced electron and optical microscopists who would like to know how they could use SPM. The workshop will cover imaging and force measurements in atomic force microscopy, the most ubiquitous form of SPM, with an emphasis on the practical knowledge and tips required for effective application, and will be delivered by experienced and renowned practitioners.

It will be an opportunity to put your SPM knowledge on a solid footing, as well as to make valuable networking connections. The workshop will include presentations and associated hands on practical demonstrations, supported by SPM instrument manufacturers. There will also be ample opportunity to discuss your specific applications and problems with the expert presenters, and during the conference at the learning zone, so do please bring your data / experimental problems if you would like more specific advice. A certificate will be awarded upon completion of the workshop.

You can register to attend this workshop when you register to attend the mmc2017 conference.
