bis Donnerstag, 07. Juli 2016 - 17:00 Uhr
Scientific Organiser: Neil Wilson, University of Warwick
This meeting covers a wide range of topics associated with Scanning Probe Microscopy including main techniques such as atomic force microscopy and scanning tunnelling microscopy as well as more specialised versions.
The SPM Meeting is held annually and provides an excellent forum for the community to meet and discuss the latest advances in the field. With an exhibition alongside and social activities organised, it is one of the best events for 2016 for scanning probe microscopy users, for PhD students and well-seasoned microscopists alike!
Abstracts are welcomed in all areas of SPM research, including SPM development and application. If you wish, you may indicate which of the proposed sessions would be more appropriate for your work.
- in-situ and in-operando SPM
- Forces and mechanics of biological systems with AFM
- Molecular systems
- Functional property measurements by SPM
- Technology and instrumentation development
