PPRC hosts Atomic Force Microscopy and Electron Microscopy Workshop

Oxford Instruments Workshop

PPRC was pleased to host a workshop on “Advances in Materials Characterisation using Atomic Force Microscopy and Electron Microscopy” for Oxford Instruments along with our colleagues in School of Maths and Physics. We welcomed 50 colleagues from across QUB and Ulster University to the event and heard some very interesting talks on new developments in material characterisation from Oxford Instruments and the journey of some of our academic colleagues took through material characterisation in their own careers to date.

The attendees were able to attend demonstration workshops on our recently installed cypher VSR AFM, and the Centre for Nanostructured Media’s SEM with Symmetry EBSD and X-Max EDS from the Oxford Instruments experts and get some invaluable insight in to how to approach analysing their materials.
