AFM-IR Webinar – 18th June 2015
AFM-IR is a breakthrough technique for simultaneous morphological and chemical characterisation at the nanoscale. It offers over 100x improvement in spatial resolution, compared to traditional FT-IR and Raman microscopy.
A 1 hour webinar entitled “Nanoscale IR Spectroscopy for Polymers and Life Sciences” will be hosted by our partners Anasys Instruments on Thursday 18th June at 3pm BST.
This webinar will discuss AFM-IR technology and its applications across a diverse range of materials, including performance plastics, nano-fibres and a biological materials, including amyloid fibrils and sub-cellular composition.
The webinar will also feature special guest Prof Stuart Lyon of the University of Manchester. He will discuss the insights that AFM-IR provides in the field of polymer coating degradation via water uptake. His group’s recent publication discussed how AFM-IR lead to finding direct evidence supporting a model of hydrophilic nanoscale domains as a source of breakdown in epoxy-phenolic anti-corrosion coatings. More information about the paper.
