The AFM workshop is open to all UA students and researchers who will be using Atomic Force microscopy for their research projects. Lab attendance is limited to 18 and preference will be given to new AFM users.Lecture attendance is not limited. The 3-day AFM workshop will consist of lecture and lab sections geared to introduce new users to the technique. Topics covered will include contact mode, intermittent contact mode (tapping or AAC mode), liquid imaging, and data analysis. This workshop is provided free of charge, and the deadline to apply for the course is Thursday June 6th at 5pm.
