The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the Summer Series of Advanced Instrumentation Workshop on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. This workshop will be hosted and presented by Dr. Guangzhao Mao, professor, Department of Chemical Engineering & Materials Science in WSU's College of Engineering. The title of the workshop is: AFM - Atomic Force Microscopy.
The AFM workshop will provide a brief overview of this key technique for nanotechnology and nanomedicine. AFM is capable of non-destructive topographical imaging of biological and nan-biological samples in air and buffer with a lateral resolution better than 1 nm. AFM is also capable of measuring molecular forces down to 1 pN. Examples of its use in research will be discussed followed by a tour of the facilities.
This Advanced Instrumentation Workshop is jointly sponsored by the OVPR and Nano Multi-Disciplinary Incubator.
