This is a two-day, face-to-face course which gives an introduction to the most widely-used techniques for materials characterisation for nanoparticles, thin films and nano-structures.
During the weekend participants are given information on the latest techniques for nanoparticle characterisation and demonstrated some of the latest pieces of equipment from manufacturers. Explanations of the principles behind the techniques and demonstrations of the equipment allow students to gain an understanding of how best to characterise nano-materials.
The course is held at the University of Oxford's Begbroke Science Park in association with BegbrokeNano, a well-established focus of characterisation expertise, and a United Kingdom DTI Micro Nano Technology (MNT) Centre of Excellence.
