Workshop: Characterization of Materials at the MAF

August 7-8, 2023

The MAF Characterization Workshop includes lectures and instrument hands-on demonstrations. The demonstrations on MAF instruments will provide application examples for the material covered in the workshop lectures. The workshop is taught by experienced MAF staff and faculty. Attendees will learn the capabilities of various surface analysis methods, compositional analysis, and electron microscopy imaging as well as how to intelligently review the data from these characterization tools.

The 2023 MAF Workshop is now sold out

The MAF is part of the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI), a National Science Foundation-funded effort to coordinate nanoscale research and development activities across the United States, and is supported by NNCI-2025489 and NNCI-1542101.
