2023 MAF Workshop

Characterization of Materials at the MAF

August 7-8, 2023

Location:  Molecular Analysis Facility (MAF) at the University of Washington

The Molecular Analysis Facility (MAF) is a state-of-the-art characterization facility that provides high end characterization tools to all users in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. 

The MAF Characterization Workshop includes lectures and instrument "╦ťhands 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 workshop will focus on the following methods:

  • X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS/ESCA)
  • Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS)
  • Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM/AFM)
  • X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
  • Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)

The 2023 MAF Workshop is now sold out
