The Latest Advances in AFM for Nanotechnology (UT Austin)


In proud partnership with the University of Texas at Austin and its Texas Materials Institute, Park Systems is proud to announce a free workshop and live demo to take place on October 4, 2016 at the Larry R. Faulkner Nano Science and Technology Building. The workshop will cover topics such as AFM automatizing software with Self-Optimizing Scan Control and Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy (SICM) technology, both from Park Systems. In the subsequent live demo, Park Systems will also unveil the functionality of the Park NX10 SICM System—a tool designed to enable innovative studies in electrochemistry. The entire event is open to all interested parties and includes lunch.


•  Event Date and Time : Tuesday, October 4, 2016 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

•  Venue : Faulkner Building, Conf. Room 1.104 — Univ. of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX


Dr. Sang-il Park, Founder & CEO of Park Systems, will be a featured presenter at the event. His talk will cover continuous innovations at Park Systems including the revolutionary Park SmartScan software, a pioneering AFM intelligence that produces high quality images with only a single click.

About University of Texas at Austin

The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) is a public research university and the flagship institution of the University of Texas System. Founded in 1881 as "The University of Texas," its campus is in Austin, Texas—approximately 1 mile from the Texas State Capitol. The institution has the seventh-largest single-campus enrollment in the nation, with over 50,000 undergraduate and graduate students and over 24,000 faculty and staff.

About the Texas Materials Institute

The Texas Materials Institute (TMI) at the University of Texas at Austin was established in 1998 to ensure that UT Austin achieves excellence in graduate education and research in the broad field of materials. The role of TMI is to be a “virtual” department that guides the destiny of materials science and engineering on the UT campus without imposing the limitations or boundaries inherent to departmental structures.

TMI serves faculty and students on the UT-Austin campus as the Organized Research Unit for materials research and to provide the necessary infrastructure needed to conduct modern materials research.

The Texas Materials Institute administers The Materials Science and Engineering Graduate Program, which offers both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. TMI recruits graduate students for this program, ensures appropriate coursework is available to educate scientists and engineers in the fundamentals of the field, provides research opportunities for these graduate students, and handles all associated administrative needs.

TMI promotes interdisciplinary research in the area of materials at UT Austin and to help coordinate all aspects of materials research and education among the participating departments. Examples include the Center for Nano- and Molecular Science and Technology (CNM) and the Microelectronics Research Center (MRC). The faculty affiliated with TMI all have appointments in a home department in either the Cockrell School of Engineering or the College of Natural Sciences.
