TEM Wedge Preparation Workshop

In association, with the Research Triangle Nanotechnology Network (RTNN) and Allied High Tech Products, the Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF) will host this two day workshop. Attendees will get hands on experience with using the Allied MultiprepTM polisher to create electron transparent samples suitable for TEM analysis. Due to the hands on nature of this course the size will be limited to ensure users get adequate time on the instruments. For more details and to register, please contact Roberto Garcia at his email rgarcia@ncsu.edu.
