Contact us at:, using subject "workshop"

This workshop features nanostructural characterization capabilities of the Characterization Facility (CharFac) and of the University Imaging Centers (UIC). The workshop is made of:
* lectures in the mornings for all (free; about 80 spots available) and
* demonstrations in the afternoons for a subset of the attendees (THE DEMONSTRATION SIGNUP IS PRACTICALLY FULL, BUT WE ARE COLLECTING A LIST FOR ANY SPOTS THAT MIGHT BECOME AVAILABLE, AND ALSO FOR INVITATION IF THERE IS A FUTURE SET OF DEMONSTRATIONS; fee applies; lunch provided; only 25 spots available)

Participation both days is strongly encouraged so that you get a comprehensive overview of nanostructural characterization methods available. The lectures are pre-requisite for the demonstrations.
* If you are from industry, we hope that this will help you convey to your colleagues, management, and direct-reports a full perspective.
* If you are a graduate student or postdoc, we hope that this comprehensive overview will serve you well in making decisions in your own research and in advising others throughout your early career. This workshop may be especially useful for graduate students beginning their second year.
* For all, we hope that this helps you make more effective decisions in your engagement in nanostructural characterization!
