Euro AFM Forum at University of Munster Focuses on Current Research in Atomic Force Microscopy

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on July 21st, 2007

The first full day of the Forum will include invited talks and submitted posters on a variety of AFM topics from bio to semiconductors. The second day will be a hands-on workshop that will consist of equipment demonstrations and lectures on such topics as fluid imaging, electrical characterization and new AFM imaging modes. Researchers may submit their posters for the conference as well as their AFM images for an image contest. Three winners will be selected to receive an iPod Nano for their winning image.

"We are pleased to co-host this conference that will bring together many of the top AFM scientists that are doing such great research in this field," said Dr. Tilman Schäffer, Scientist in the BioForce Group at the CeNTech, University of Munster.

The event is co-sponsored by CeNTech, University of Munster, Atomic Force F&E and Asylum Research.
