Advanced Techniques for Measuring Nanoelectrical and Nanomechanical Properties: Materials and Life Sciences 

The aim of the workshop is to enhance the knowledge and experience of the local atomic force microscopy (AFM) user community. The workshop is ideal for those that have some AFM experience and would like to elevate their skills for use in their own research.
