CNF TCN 2013
CNF Short Course: Technology & Characterization at the Nanoscale (CNF TCN)
Tuesday - Friday, June 4-7, 2013
This intensive 3.5 day short course offered by the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility, combines lectures and laboratory demonstrations designed to impart a broad understanding of the science and technology required to undertake research in nanoscience. Attendance is open to the general scientific community, but class size is limited to 30 participants.
Attendance is open to the general scientific community and is not limited to CNF users or Cornell students. We strongly encourage all persons expecting to become CNF users in 2012 to attend this course. It is suitable for both new and experienced researchers interested in nanoscale science. An emphasis will be placed on CNF laboratory resources, however, the concepts and techniques discussed are generally applicable to research in this field and do not require use of CNF. Please note the lab demonstrations do not replace any required formal tool trainings.
Schedule and Location
The course will be held Tuesday through Friday. The lectures and lunches will be held in (location TBD). The laboratory demonstrations and lectures will be held in the CNF clean room, in Duffield Hall.
