Scope of the Forum

The Euro AFM Forum is organized for AFM scientist s to share and exchange their cutting-edge research in both materials and life science disciplines. The instrument workshops offer in-depth knowledge about advanced AFM technologies combined with hands-on instructions at the AFM. Experienced and novice scientists using AFM technology will find the Forum very helpful to increase their knowledge about this exciting measurement method.

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
