Advanced Techniques in  Electrochemistry 
  with Professor Lane Baker


Park Systems presents a webinar to learn about one of the cutting-edge applications of nanoscientific research:

Nanoscale In-Liquid Imaging:
Not as Tough as You Thought

 Join us for a series of talks centered on the field of electrochemistry featuring Prof. Lane Baker, the James F. Jackson Associate Professor of Chemistry at Indiana University! Versed in various electrochemical methods for sample analysis and imaging, Prof. Baker has been applying his knowledge to further nanopore use in developing chemically and biochemically selective membranes, sensors, and new electrochemical imaging techniques.

 Since its inception in the late 1980s, Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy (SICM) has exploded in popularity largely due to both its ability to operate in relevant solution environments as well as the image resolution it can attain in such conditions.

 In this tutorial, Prof. Baker will discuss the history of SICM, its various feedback modes, the advantages of each one, and where SICM might be going in the future.

Presented by Prof. Lane Baker
Department of Chemistry, Indiana University

About Prof. Lane Baker

Prof. Lane Baker, the James F. Jackson Associate Professor of Chemistry at Indiana University, received a B.S. degree from Missouri State University in 1996. He was awarded his Ph.D. degree at Texas A&M University in 2001 working with Richard M. Crooks. He was then awarded a National Research Council Postdoctoral Associateship to study scanning probe microscopes with Lloyd J. Whitman at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. He studied nanopore membranes and single nanopore platforms as a postdoctoral associate with Charles R. Martin at the University of Florida.
