Bruker Nano Surfaces
Contact resonance and nDMA Training
October 28-29, 2020 in Karlsruhe, Germany
During this 2-day course you can improve your skillset and understanding with these specialised modes for measuring sample mechanics at the nanoscale. This training will use the Icon AFM for practical work and demonstrations.
If you find the whole module relevant or just part of it you can choose to participate in just one or both of the training days.
On the first day the course covers contact resonance (CR); the basic theoretical background for extraction of mechanical parameters from AFM force curve data and the limitations of this approach, where the contact resonance method becomes useful and how it works, implementation of the CR method on the Icon AFM including demonstration and practice. On the second day nano Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (nDMA) is covered, including; understanding how the DMA method works and what information it gives us, how nDMA is implemented in the Icon AFM and demonstration and practice of the technique. The course will be held in Karlsruhe, Germany. The language will be English.
