Park AFM Workshop – Universidad Nacional de Colombia


In proud partnership with the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Park Systems is proud to announce a free atomic force microscopy (AFM) workshop, live demo, and sample evaluation to take place from August 16 to 18, 2017 at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia's campus in Medellin, Colombia.

The workshop will provide a detailed introduction to the new key attributes of modern AFM technology, such as True Non-Contact™ Mode and Self-Optimizing Scan Control as well as PinPoint Mode that are great for various topography and mechanical imaging in both air and liquid environment, all from Park Systems. During the subsequent instrument demonstration you will have the opportunity to learn the innovative functionality of the Park NX10 AFM System—a tool designed to enable the accurate and reproducible measurements in advanced research—and have the opportunity to evaluate your samples. This entire event is open to all interested parties and includes lunch.



Dr. Byong Kim, Sr. Director of Technical Staff at Park Systems, will be a featured presenter at the event. Over the course of the three-day workshop, Dr. Kim will be on-hand to give overviews of various advanced SPM modes available to researchers using the Park NX10 AFM System.
