Morphology and Microstructure of Heterogeneous Polymers and Composites

Hands-on Microscopy Course

 

10 - 13 April 2018

University of Twente, The Netherlands

 

Design, Benefits and Course Topics

The course is aimed at researchers, engineers and technicians, both in industry and academia, with limited to moderate experience in polymer microscopy. We would like to share our passion for polymers by offering you up to 17 hours of pure hands-on laboratory sessions. These sessions will cover the fundamentals of scanning electron (SEM), transmission electron (TEM), atomic force (AFM), optical (OM) and infrared (FTIR) microscopy. In addition, distinguished speakers and experts will give informative lectures. The course includes sample preparation (microtoming, etching, cryo-fracturing), surface analysis,  data interpretation, environmental control, artefacts and pitfalls in polymer microscopy. There will also be an opportunity to study your own samples, where we will be happy to share our knowledge and expertise with you.
