Bioindentation Workshop

November 6, 2019 @ 10:00 am November 7, 2019 @ 3:00 pm

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.

Questions? Contact Phillip Strader (pmstrade@ncsu.edu)

The official start time is 10:00 am each day and the scheduled end is around 3:00 pm; however, attendees may come and go as they please during this time.
