The Porto AFM Workshop 2020 has been announced. This is the seventh edition of the course!


The course will run from the 6th to 9th April 2020. Our course is a training workshop aimed at any researcher or scientist, who wants to learn about AFM or increase their knowledge of the technique. Following the successful courses that have run since 2011, the course will includes several hours hands-on training in acquiring images with the atomic force microscope as well as AFM data processing. We also cover sample preparation, AFM modes, and applications in both biology and materials.


More details will be announced soon, but places are very limited and I encourage all interested participants to register by contacting me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
