Atomic Force Microscopy Beginners Guide
Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is a Nobel Prize-winning technique that provides high-resolution imaging, and physical properties data from biological or material surfaces.
If you want to learn more about the theory of AFM, get hands-on with the technology and explore its advantages over alternative microscopy methods, this 1 day short course is essential.
Taught by Dr James R Smith – who has more than 20 years of AFM experience – this course is perfect for those looking to explore this exciting technique, and for anyone who needs initial catch-up training too.
We're the only university to offer a course of this type in the world and once you've completed it, you'll have enhanced your microscopy knowledge, so you'll be more employable in the field.
- Mode of study: Direct contact
- Duration: 1 day
- Start and end dates: The course runs on an ad-hoc basis, depending on the number of candidates
What you'll experience
On this short course, you'll cover:
- Technique Overview
- Sample Preparation
