3D Raman Imaging and Correlative Scanning Microscopy Workshop
Harvard University - Haller Hall – Room 102 - 24 Oxford St. - Cambridge, MA 02138
This workshop will give a detailed introduction to the operational principles and instrumental configurations relevant to confocal Raman Imaging and Scanning Microscopy (SEM, AFM, SNOM, Pulsed Force Mode, TrueSurface). Our Speakers will cover several aspects of Raman, SEM and SPM imaging and their fields of applications. An extensive system demonstration gives the participants the opportunity to see this knowledge applied using an alpha300 RSA+ (combined AFM, SNOM & Confocal Raman Microscope). Participants are welcome to submit their individual samples at this workshop for evaluation in the WITec application lab. Scientists interested in how to chemically identify and image the compounds of a sample at the highest spatial resolution are invited to participate. Typical research fields for confocal Raman imaging are materials and polymer sciences, thin films, coatings, pharmaceutics and cosmetics, archaeology and geoscience, forensics and all fields where a clear identification of the distribution of chemical compounds is a necessity.

The workshop is free of charge but it requires registration due to limited availability of places. In order to register, please fill in the form below and fax it to Tavis Ezell at WITec. (Fax: (865)984-4441). You may also send your contact information electronically to witecusa@witec-instruments.com or use the standard CNS training sign up page at, http://www.cns.fas.harvard.edu/users/training_events.php?eid=20476

Asylum Research AFM Workshop and Tutorials
Harvard University - Haller Hall, Room 102 - 24 Oxford St., - Cambridge, MA 02138
Oxford Instruments Asylum Research, Inc. and Harvard University’s Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS) announce an AFM Workshop and Tutorials Aug. 21-22. The workshop will focus on new techniques and instrumentation for nanomechanical and nanoelectrical characterization. Leading AFM scientists in their respective fields of materials and bioscience will present their latest results on the first day of the meeting. AFM techniques and scans modes will be demonstrated live on the Asylum Research Cypher ES™ Environmental AFM.

The second day of the workshop will include tutorial demonstrations on nanomechanics and electrical characterization techniques, including scanning microwave impedance microscopy (sMIM). The workshop is ideal for both novice and experienced AFM users.

Invited speakers include:
• Kathy Aidala, Mount Holyoke College
• Tom Arruda, Salve Regina University
• Bryan Huey, University of Connecticut
• Cristian Staii, Tufts University
• Matt Whitfield, MIT
• Dalia Yablon, SurfaceChar LLC

Registration

The lectures on Aug. 21 are free to all attendees.
Tutorials on Aug. 22 are $25 per tutorial. You will receive an invoice for the tutorial once you register.

Due to limited seating, attendees must register for the days that they wish to attend. Lunch will be provided on the first day of the workshop.

Free Trainings Announced for new Plate Reader in G05 Biomaterials Lab
CNS has a new plate reader in the G05 Biomaterials lab for you to use for cellular assays. Free trainings will be provided in LISE G05 1-1:30 p.m. every Tuesday in June, on June, 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th respectively. Please take advantage of these free trainings to learn about the functions of this plate reader (you can also bring samples and read them for free during the training).
