training workshops

Education is at our core. It’s what excites us. And it’s what unites us with people who share our passion for scientific discovery and commercial application. Our training workshops are open to everyone—industry engineers, product developers, entrepreneurs, academic researchers and anyone with an interest in materials characterization, synthesis and nanofabrication.

Whether you’re interested in X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) or advances in structural and chemical imaging, you’ll find fresh research and perspectives here. Don’t miss out! Please email Danielle Clair to be notified of upcoming workshops.

What's upcoming

Electron Microscopy & Spectroscopy in Micro and Nano Electronics

Wednesday & Thursday, May 13 & 14, 2015

Description:

This 2-day workshop includes hands-on demonstrations and lectures by national experts, presentations by industry researchers and manufacturers.

The workshop will focus on electron microscopy and spectroscopy skill-building as it pertains to micro and nano electronic fabrication and defect analysis. Suited well for process engineers, test engineers and technicians. The lectures and demo experience will introduce, develop, and enrich skills in the semiconductor and electronics industries and the university research community.
