Atomic Force Microscopy Workshop

Discover how AFM can benefit your research. In this series of workshops, the Origin+ AFM at NC State’s AIF will be showcased, presenting its scan modes & real-world results. See techniques demonstrated by Asylum Research staff in the afternoon.

Topics include:

  • 6/22: AFM for polymer surface characterization
  • 6/22: AM-FM™ viscoelastic imaging
  • 7/27: Cells/soft materials
  • 7/27: Nanomechanics
  • 7/27: In-liquid work
  • 8/17: Nanomagnetics

Speakers:
Keith Jones, Oxford Instruments Asylum Research
Ryan Fuierer, Oxford Instruments Asylum Research

New Undergraduate Research Opportunity at Smart Materials Solutions

Smart Material Solutions, Inc. (SMS) is seeking two REU students for 10 week paid summer internships. SMS is a small NC State startup in Raleigh, NC that is developing an advanced nanomanufacturing process called nanocoining. The patented process can seamlessly nanopattern drum molds for roll-to-roll manufacturing hundreds of times faster than competing technologies like electron-beam lithography.

Internship 1: Simulations of optical properties
This student will perform finite different time domain (FDTD) simulations to model and optimize the optical properties of nanostructures. The intern will model anti-reflective coatings as well as light-extraction features for OLED displays and solid-state lighting. This student will also be trained in scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). Students with a background in optics, modeling, physics, electrical engineering, or a related field are encouraged to apply.

Internship 2: Fabrication, characterization, and lamination of nanostructured films
This intern will imprint nanostructures into polymer films and characterize their optical and wetting properties. The student will also laminate nanostructures onto devices such as a solar cell and smartphone. This student will receive training on several characterization techniques including SEM, AFM, and UV-Vis spectroscopy. SMS prefers a student with a background in materials science, chemical engineering, nanotechnology, or a related field.

For more information, please review this flier. To apply, send your resume to miller@smartmaterialsolutions.com and specify which internship interests you.
