Bruker Atomic Force Microscopy Webinar: The Fundamentals of AFM Probe Selection(19.January, 12:00pm EST)
During the broadcast, Ian Armstrong and John Thornton will explain the fundamentals of AFM probe design, provide an overview of the probes available and their properties, and outline how to select the right probe for the right application. There will also be a short presentation on the latest innovations from Bruker in probe development for biological and materials sciences applications.Register.
Enhancing your imaging workflows and ultrastructural data using Biological EDS(02.February, 10:30am EST)
Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometry (EDS) enables us to collect compositional information in combination with electron images.Biological EDS can measure and map elements within cells and tissues at the nanoscale, generating multicolor images of cellular and subcellular features. In this webinar, you will gain knowledge on how to prepare your biological samples for EDS, how biological EDS complements electron microscopy as an imaging technique.Register.
Actions to Advance Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Physics.
This presentation will focus on ideas to challenge the status quo—actions to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). The speaker will describe recent published research that raises awareness of EDI challenges in science and will discuss actions that scientists can take to collaborate on advancing EDI. The recommendations apply to a broad spectrum of science activities and to those at different stages of their studies or career.Register.
