Description

We are delighted to invite you to the Infrared Nanoscopy Workshop on Biological and Polymer Nanomaterials. It will be held at the SOLARIS National Synchrotron Radiation Centre of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, from 24th to 26th April 2024.

The workshop takes you through scientific talks focused on infrared tip-enhanced microscopy by leading experts in nanoscale analysis, presentations introducing s-SNOM, nano-FTIR, AFM-IR and their applications as well as free live test measurements on participant samples using a neaSCOPE instrument (registration required). It is also an opportunity to discuss and exchange cutting-edge knowledge and new ideas in infrared nanospectroscopy during a stimulating synchrotron tour and a fruitful poster session.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are very pleased to meet you all at the Infrared Nanoscopy Workshop on Biological and Polymer Nanomaterials in Kraków hoping to broaden academic knowledge, experience in nanospectroscopy techniques, and become a member of the SOLARIS synchrotron community.
