Applications of Atomic Force Microscopy in Polymer Research


The symposium features a panel of experts who will describe the role of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) in their polymer research projects and share recent results.

Topics Discussed:

  • Imaging dynamics and ordering in block copolymer tthin films with environmentally controlled AFM
  • Accurate nanomechanical characterization of polymer materials and composites
  • Nanostructure and deformation behavior of high performance fibers
