ISS Introduction to Surface Chemistry Hands-on Workshop - May 13 & 14, 2014
Instructor: Dr. Philip Roche, Post-Doc, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Microstructured polymer doped with gold nanorods:
The microstructure is formed by the conflicting forces of adhesion and cohesion that occur between the polymer, the stamp and the substrate. The intense red colour comes from Mie Scattering of the gold Nano rods.
The two-day workshop will focus on a practical approach to surface modification related to sensors.
Students should expect to gain
- a familiarity of language associated with the study and methodologies of surface chemistry
- understanding of why surface chemistry/modification is an area worth great consideration in sensors research
- basic familiarity with implementing surface modification protocols
tools for further study on individual research questions
