Nordic AFM Days 2019

Join us in Copenhagen for a two day meeting about AFM (Atomic Force Microscopy) and nanoscale IR spectroscopy. There will be talks from experts about their research work, hands-on practical sessions and presentations about the latest technological developments from Bruker.

The first day, held at Copenhagen University’s Chemistry Department, will focus on nanoscale IR spectroscopy, which encompasses the pioneering fields of AFM-IR, s-SNOM and O-PTIR.

For the second day, we’ll be moving to the conference centre at DTU. The programme will cover AFM, both in materials and life science (bio-AFM).
