Workshop Modern Measurement Techniques for Surface Chemistry

On May 15 and 16 DataPhysics is organizing their workshop Modern Measurement Techniques for Surface Chemistry in their officie location in Stuttgart.

Modern Measurement Techniques for Surface Chemistry

Today surface chemistry plays an increasingly important role in many fields like materials and chemical engineering. Hence, the study of interfacial properties provides crucial information for the development, manufacturing and processing of many products. 

For this purpose there are different measurement methods of which you will learn both fundamental basics and practical aspects during this seminar.

Target group

Our seminar is aimed at everybody who wants to get an overview of the state-of-theart measurement techniques for surface analysis.

No matter if you are already working in the field and want to discuss your methods with experts, or if you are interested in how your surface chemistry questions could be approached – in this seminar you benefit by extending your fundamental knowledge and by learning how to practically deal with applied experimental aspects.

Your lecturers during the seminar

For every seminar experts are invited from science and industry as guest speakers to share with you their treasure trove of practical experience. Furthermore, you have the opportunity to exchange information with experienced DataPhysics employees of different divisions. All of them will gladly answer your questions and give tips and tricks for your very own application specific tasks.

Guest lecturers for this seminar are:

Richard Thelen:

Mr. Richard Thelen works at the Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). In the group Biomimetics and Smart Surfaces he investigates micro and nano structures inspired by nature. At the seminar he will present amongst other things, how combining AFM and contact angle measurements facilitates the determination of adhesive forces.

Prof. Dr. Thomas Sottmann:

Apl. Prof. Dr. Thomas Sottmann is group leader at the Institute for Physical Chemistry at the University of Stuttgart. His group studies the thermodynamic, structural and interfacial properties of smart complex fluids. At the seminar the physicist will present the spinnig drop method and its application to measure ultralow interfacial tensions.
