Join Us Online for New AFM Seminars this September & October!


Agilent Technologies invites you to attend a special pair of scientific e-Seminars designed to provide highly useful information about sample preparation for atomic force microscopy (AFM). These exclusive one-hour live events will be led by Agilent senior application scientist Dr. Song Xu. All online attendees can query the presenter directly during open Q&A sessions.


Register now for one or both of these exciting and engaging seminars!


Date:               September 19 @ 11:00 a.m. ET


Presenter:       Song Xu, Ph.D. (Agilent Technologies)


Title:               Sample Preparation for Atomic Force Microscopy, Part I


In this seminar, we will discuss sample preparation for atomic force microscopy. Several years ago, we touched upon this topic in a shorter seminar that dealt with the basic principles of preparing samples for AFM imaging. This time, we will delve into greater detail and present more examples. We will start with a discussion of very commonly used substrates that are ideal for immobilizing AFM samples. Then we will consider techniques for cleaning various samples and substrates. For biological applications, we will emphasize how to immobilize samples such as bacteria, DNA, and proteins for stable imaging, both in air and in water. We will also discuss the handling and fixing of samples for special applications, such as in situ high/low-temperature imaging.


Date:               October 31 @ 11:00 a.m. ET


Presenter:       Song Xu, Ph.D. (Agilent Technologies)


Title:               Sample Preparation for Atomic Force Microscopy, Part II


In this seminar, we will continue to discuss sample preparation for AFM imaging. This time, we will cover the details of preparation for a list of very popular samples, including nanoparticles, Au(111) surfaces, graphene, block co-polymers, self-assembled monolayers, and lipid bilayers. Registrants are encouraged to send us suggestions regarding additional sample preparations you would like us to discuss, and we will try our best to include them in this seminar.


Join us for one or both of these uniquely informative live events!




Agilent e-Seminars feature a user-friendly, web-based conferencing system that allows you and your colleagues to take part in real-time, interactive presentations on subjects that are pertinent to your work.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
