Course Description

AFM is a Nobel Prize-winning microscopy technique that provides high-resolution imaging of and physical properties data acquisition from biological or materials surfaces. The technique has many advantages over scanning electron microscopy: little or no sample preparation, metal coatings not being required and imaging in air or in liquid.

This one-day short course provides an introduction to the technique, maximising your hands-on use of the AFM with supporting theory being explained as we proceed through the day.

Content will include: Technique overview, sample preparation, imaging modes, imaging in liquids, and image analysis. A number of samples will be investigated and there will be plenty of time for questions. A take-away manual, which you can annotate throughout the day, will be provided, as will an attendance certificate.

The course will be taught by Dr James R Smith whom has over 20 years of AFM experience. The course will be invaluable for those venturing out with this exciting technique or those requiring initial or catch-up training.
