This pre-congress class, for young scientists and newcomers, will provide basic information about new advances on imaging techniques and force spectroscopy using Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM). Training sessions will include the following AFM topics: Contact, Intermittent Contact, Non-contact, Peak Force tapping modes; Soft and hard materials characterization; Optical and AFM correlative image; High speed imaging; Force spectroscopy; Sample preparation and SPM imaging modes. These activities will emphasize theoretical and practical principles of Scanning Probe Microscopy, in particular, Atomic Force Microscopy imaging techniques, aiming to extract the maximum SPM information.
The organizers will select 20 participants to access the hands-on-school activities and ISPM conference will be obligatory. For this purpose the selected participants will have a free registration at Búzios conference.
The hands-on school certificate, including the participation on the ISPM conference, will correspond to 60 hours course of graduated studies.
