Asylum Research and the Laboratory of Energy and Nano Science (LENS) are holding a scientific workshop on Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) at Masdar Institute, Abu Dhabi with a focus on Energy and Environmental Applications.
Dr. Arvind Raman is a Full Professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering and the Birck Nanotechnology Center at Purdue University with industry-leading AFM research and interests in predicting and exploiting nonlinear dynamical phenomena in micro and nanosystems, and in coupled fluid-structural systems.
Dr. Jason Cleveland is co-founder and CEO of Asylum Research. Dr. Cleveland has numerous publications on the physics of AFM and is a co-inventor on many AFM patents.
Dr. Matteo Chiesa, Associate Professor at LENS will present the effort of his group to determine the relevance of capillary interactions on slight variations of the tip’s size and demonstrate robust control and even the ability to identify the most elusive dissipative mechanisms that are thought to occur in the nanoscale.
Dr. Neil Wilson is an Associate Professor in condensed matter physics at the University of Warwick. His research is currently focused on the structural, mechanical and electrical properties of graphene.
