Workshop at Worcester Polytechnic Institute – Advances in Nanoindentation: A Rapid Throughput Approach for Measuring Mechanical Properties at Small Scales

May 14, 2019 in Worcester, MA | News Type: Technology:
Nanoindentation Workshop

We invite you to join representatives of Nanoscience Instruments and our partners KLA May 14th – 16th at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, MA for a Nanoindentation Workshop.

The free workshop on May 15th on “Advances in Nanoindentation: A Rapid Throughput Approach for Measuring Mechanical Properties at Small Scales” will feature:

  • Invited talks from the wide range of applications including in the fields of lithium metal, biomaterials, material science, polymers, plus many more.
  • Personal nanoindentation demonstrations available by request
  • A complimentary lunch for all participants
  • A reception following the event

This is a great opportunity to meet, share and network with other nanoindentation users in different fields of scientific research.

You will gain hands-on experience for the KLA nanoindentation products and how the design of the instrumentation delivers reproducible results because of the superior physics design.

Workshop will be held in Salisbury Labs 115 with demonstrations in adjacent classrooms. The reception will be held in Higgins House Great Hall and Gardens. See below for additional details.

Workshop space is limited, registration is on first come first serve basis and is required so that we may prepare for lunch and reception.
