MRSEC / Asylum Research Video Rate AFM Workshop

February 28, 2018

Increase Your AFM Knowledge and see video-rate Atomic Force Microscopy

This informative free workshop is a joint effort betwen MRSEC and Asylum Research (Oxford Instrument). The workshop will include lectures and hands-on demonstrations for researchers who want to better understand how AFM can capture dynamic processes at the nanoscale. Topics will speci cally cover video-rate AFM and the latest innovations for electrochemistry and nanomechanics/mechanobiology applications. The workshop is ideal for those that have AFM experience, as well as those who would like to learn more about incorporating AFM into their research.
