Queens University Materials Science Workshop (Belfast, Northern Ireland)

Advances in materials characterisation using Atomic Force Microscopy and Electron Microscopy

Oxford Instruments, in collaboration with Queen’s University Belfast, will host a free materials science workshop on the latest advances in AFM, EDS and EBSD aimed at both novices as well as existing users wishing to expand their knowledge.

You will hear from the experts on the latest developments in analytical techniques for materials science applications as well as having dedicated microscope time to put what you've learnt into practice.
