Special AFM mode training course on Electrochemistry

Oct 23-24, 2019  | Karlsruhe, Germany

Course Objective:

Bruker Customer Support likes to introduce you to or to refresh your knowledge on electrochemical AFM. During the 2-day course we will present you ways to prepare your measurements on Dimension Icon and how to set up the experiment. In addition, the theoretical aspect of electrochemistry will also be briefly covered. In aqueous solutions we will perform electrochemical experiments and investigate the surface with an AFM at the same time. On the second day we would like to work with the special mode SECM where the probe is used as an electrode to measure locally the electrochemical potential on the electrode surface. Probe handling of this highly sensitive method will be part of the training. The system used will be a Dimension Icon.

The course will be held in Karlsruhe, Germany. The language will be English.
