Lectures are scheduled from several quantum experts:
- Ken Brown (Duke University)
- Fred Chong (University of Chicago)
- Jungsang Kim (Duke University)
- Peter Love (Tufts University)
- Iman Marvian (Duke University)
- Akimasa Miyake (University of New Mexico)
- Hanhee Paik (IBM)
The program is open to undergraduates. graduate students, and industry professionals. The application deadline is March 15, 2019. Please see the program website for more information and application instructions.
The Van Andel Research Institute is hosting a cryo-EM workshop August 13-15, 2018 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Full scholarships, including travel, are available for up to 15 graduate students. Applications are due May 11, 2018.
Taught by internationally recognized cryo-EM experts, Cryo-EM at the Van Andel Research Institute will give gifted graduate students an intense overview of the latest innovative methodology and its applications across several fields including cancer and neurodegenerative disease research. By the end of the week, students will have a greater appreciation of what can be achieved through the application of cryo-EM.
Sessions will cover:
- Electron microscopy
- Electron tomography
- Image processing basics
- Image processing and 3-D reconstruction (hands-on session)
- Negative stain and cryo-EM grid preparation
- Cryo-EM on the Arctica and the Krios with a Volta phase plate
The course is designed to engage students and promote discussion between fellow participants and course instructors. In addition to talks and hands-on lessons, there will be social events that will provide opportunities to network.
For more information and to apply please visit the workshop website. Questions can be directed to Aubrie Bruinsma at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Horiba Scientific and Harvard’s Center for Nanoscale Systems will be hosting a two day Raman spectroscopy workshop May 15 – 16. The lectures will be focused on Raman spectroscopy of 2D materials, but anyone with interest in learning the fundamentals and applications of Raman spectroscopy in greater detail should attend.
There will be a poster session and cocktail reception the evening of May 15th. Please consider submitting a poster to help foster discussion about the topics that interest you and the challenges that you face in your research. Poster abstracts should be sent to email@example.com.
David Tuschel from Horiba Scientific will be presenting the lectures at the workshop. David has more than 30 years of experience in optical characterization of materials. David shares responsibility with Fran Adar also from Horiba for authoring the Molecular Spectroscopy Workbench, which appears regularly in Spectroscopy magazine.
Since space in the workshop is limited there is a small ticket fee to discourage no shows. Tickets are available here.

RTNN is excited to announce an upcoming microfluidic workshop at the Chapel Hill Analytical and Nanofabrication Laboratory (CHANL). This workshop will offer participants the opportunity to learn about patterning structures across different length scales (nm→μm) and become familiar with a number of important application areas – microfluidics and nanofluidics for biological/biomedical applications. There will be lectures covering relevant technological and application areas with on-site visits and demonstrations of relevant equipment. The last day of the workshop will involve a hands-on experience; making a microfluidic device. More details can be found here and on the CHANL website.
On May 10-11, 2016 RTNN will host community college educators at NC State for a free nanotechnology workshop. The two-day event is open to educators from all backgrounds with a focus on the incorporation of nanotechnology and nanoscience into basic science curricula such as chemistry and physics. Attendees will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience and use techniques like scanning electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
