During this 2-day course you can improve your skillset and understanding with the fundamentals of Bruker’s Quantitative Nano Mechanics (QNM) application package and how it is used to distinguish between regions of different mechanical properties during scanning. This training will focus on using the Icon AFM for practical work, but the software use is almost identical for QNM with our other NSV AFMs; Multimode8, BioscopeResolve.
If you are new to the techniques or just need a refresher, you can choose to participate in just one or both days of the course, depending on your personal requirements. The course covers; the basic theoretical background for extraction of mechanical parameters from AFM force curve data, calibration of the system for accurate QNM data, demonstration and hands on practice with QNM using both the absolute and relative calibration methods and demonstration of Bruker’s high accuracy QNM technique. The course will be held in Karlsruhe, Germany. The language will be English.
