January 14 - 16, 2014
Jackson Hall, room 2-137 (2nd floor, west side)
University of MN, Twin Cities East Bank Campus
IPrime announces three January mid-year workshops on the University of Minnesota's East Bank campus. The sessions will feature a variety of stimulating topics on key research by academic and industrial experts. Registration closes Friday, January 10.
- 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing
Tuesday, January 14 (9:00 AM - 3:00 PM)
Sponsored by the Coatings Process Fundamentals (CPF) program and Minnesota Nano Center (MNC)
This workshop will identify fundamental research needs in the emerging areas of 3D printing and additive manufacturing. These needs may be related to the materials used, the processing of those materials, and the resulting products. Both industrial and academic perspectives will be presented.
- Future Trends in Microscopy
Wednesday, January 15 (8:30 AM - 4:30 PM)
Sponsored by the Nanostructural Materials and Processes (NMP) program, Characterization Facility (CharFac), and University Imaging Centers (UIC)
This workshop will introduce participants to the latest and near-future trends in high resolution (both spatial and temporal) microscopy. Some methods and instruments described are newly or soon to be available in our core facilities (CharFac and UIC). Some are cutting edge developments, not available in core facilities at this point, but harbingers of what is to come.
- Amorphous Materials: Theory and Practice in Pharmaceuticals and Devices
Thursday, January 16 (9 AM - 3:30 PM)
Sponsored by the Biomaterials and Pharmaceutical Materials (BPM) & Microstructured Polymers (MP) programs
In this workshop, internationally recognized leaders discussing the properties of amorphous materials above and below the glass transition temperature. Large molecules such as polymers, small molecules such as drugs, and combinations of the two will be covered. Bulk and interfacial properties of amorphous materials and solid amorphous dispersions will be emphasized, and the impact of these properties on industrial processes and product performance will be considered.
