Dow Fellow Presents AFM-IR Talk at ISPAC 2015 Polymer Conference
Dow Fellow Dr Gregory Meyers will present an invited talk about AFM based nanoscale IR spectroscopy on polymer blends and films at ISPAC 2015, the 28th International Symposium on Polymer Analysis and Characterisation.
AFM-IR is a new technique that uses an Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) probe as an infrared (IR) absorption sensor, to obtain over 100X increase in spatial resolution of IR spectroscopy. The technique was commercialised by Anasys Instruments with the nanoIR and nanoIR2.
Dr. Gregory Meyers, a Fellow at The Dow Chemical Company, has been involved in the development of the AFM-IR technology and is one of the world’s leading industrial AFM practitioners.
AFM-IR on Polymer Blends and Films
Dr. Meyers will present AFM-IR results on a variety of samples, including polymer blends and multilayer films. His talk is entitled “Nanoscale Molecular Imaging in Polymer Systems” and is co-authored by M.A. Rickard, C. W. Reinhardt, and J. J. Stanley.
ISPAC is annual conference about industrial polymer characterisation technologies and applications. The 2015 conference will be in Houston, Texas on 7-10 June. Full details are available on the ISPAC 2015 website.
