Join Park Systems' upcoming online lectures and explore Atomic Force Microscopy's working principles (AFM). The course will cover AFM operational principles through lectures and interactive demo sessions with live interaction from the attendees. · Nanomechanical characterization by Indentation.
An approximately one-hour lecture about Pinpoint will be given. The working principle and the operation models will be discussed (Hertz, JKR and DMT). Terms like Young modulus, adhesion force, Poisson ratio, etc, will be clarified. Questions are welcomed at any time during the lecture. Introductory PinPoint Video (10 min)

· Interactive Demo Session One:
Interactive session will consist of demonstrating nanoindentation process (Set point & Z height). Differences in the result analysis will be explained. Demonstration sample will be a polycarbonate film. Questions are welcomed at any time during the session.
