AFM Workshop at the University of Chicago
Feb. 28, 2018

Increase Your AFM Knowledge
This informative free 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 specifically 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.
