Make the Best of a Bad Situation: A Characterization Seminar Series

In partnership with experts at Penn State, Illinois and Wisconsin, CharFac recently delivered webinars viewed by hundreds of academic and industrial registrants across the US.

Both broad introductions and specialized methods were included, and subject matter ranging from theoretical foundations to practical tips. Techniques included photoelectron, Auger and chemical spectroscopies; nanoindentation and atomic force microscopy; wide- and small-angle X-ray scattering; transmission and scanning electron microscopy; focused ion beam and ion scattering; and more.

CharFac scientists spoke on confocal Raman microscopy, Rutherford backscattering & related methods; multifrequency AFM / AFM-IR; electron backscatter / transmission Kikuchi diffraction; cryo-electron microscopy / 3D reconstruction.
