Learn Rheology, DMA, AFM, and DLS hands-on!
Do you have a couple of hours and want to learn about material characterization techniques for your academic research? Are you working in industry now and find that you need better techniques to differentiate between good and bad formulas? Or are you just curious about the techniques because they are cool?
This Skill Builder Workshop is designed to cover leading edge characterization techniques in a concise and practical manner by including:
Fundamental science behind the measurement
Top 3-5 critical considerations for making reliable measurements
Real world application examples
The Skill Builder Workshop preceding the Texas Soft Matter Meeting will be broken into 2 hour sessions so you can attend one or all:
Nanosurface Properties by Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)
Flow and Deformation Behavior of Liquids to Solids by Rheology and DMA
Particle Characterization and Zeta Potential by Dynamic Light Scattering
By the end of each session, you will be able to make basic measurements on your own.
The sessions well be held at 8:30 (AFM), 10:30 (DLS), and 12:30 (Rheology-DMA).
This workshop is the perfect epilogue to the UFL Soft Matter Symposium the previous days:
If you plan on bringing samples to the workshop, please let us know in advance by contacting Mr. Sandeep Manandhar at email@example.com to ensure we can accommodate your request.
