Bioindentation Workshop

NC State’s Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF) and Optics11 are hosting a workshop focused on mechanical characterization of biological and soft materials through nanoindentation. The workshop will include a brief background presentation as well as a demonstration of the Optics11 Piuma system. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own samples to try testing with the Piuma system as long as time permits.
