University of Washington, Seattle
August 18-20, 2014

This 2.5 day workshop includes lectures and surface analysis demonstrations.  Demonstrations on NESAC/BIO instruments will provide application examples for the material covered in the workshop lectures.  Attendees will learn the capabilities of biomedical surface analysis methods and how to intelligently review data received from surface analysis laboratories.  NESAC/BIO faculty and staff will address the following topics at this workshop:

Introduction to Surface Analysis  (David Castner)
Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis  (Lara Gamble)
Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry  (David Castner)
Sum Frequency Generation  (Patrick Koelsch)
Contact Angle Measurements  (Buddy Ratner)
Surface Modification  (Dean Pettit)
Multivariate Data Analysis  (Dan Graham)

Scanning Probe Microscopy  (David Castner)
Surface Plasmon Resonance  (David Castner)
Near Edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure  (Lara Gamble)

Multi-technique Biomedical Surface Analysis  (David Castner)
