This IPrime Mid-Year Workshop is presented by the Nanostructural Materials and Processes (NMP) program and Characterization Facility (CharFac). Coordinators: NMP Program Leader Alon McCormick and CharFac Director Greg Haugstad. Registration is required.
The goal of this workshop is to 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 available in our core facilities (Characterization Facility and University Imaging Centers). Some are cutting edge developments, not available in core facilities at this point, but harbingers of what is to come.
Register here by Friday, January 10. This workshop is free and open to IPrime member companies, invited guests, and University of Minnesota faculty, students, and staff. Prospective IPrime members interested in attending an IPrime event as a guest should contact Bob Lewis, ph: 612-625-1269.
