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 Spectrometery (David Castner)
  • Sum Frequency Generation (Patrik Johansson)
  • Contact Angle Measurements (Allan Hoffman)
  • Surface Modification (Allan Hoffman)
  • Multivariate Data Analysis (Dan Graham)
  • Scanning Probe Microscopy (Micah Glaz)
  • Surface Plasmon Resonance (David Castner)
  • Quartz Crystal Microbalance (Elisa Harrison)
  • Near Edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (Lara Gamble)
  • Multi-technique Biomedical Surface Analysis (Buddy Ratner)

The National ESCA and Surface Analysis Center for Biomedical Problems (NESAC/BIO) is a state-of-the-art
surface analysis center whose mission is the development and application of surface analysis methods for
biomedical research. NESAC/BIO is funded by NIH Grant EB-002027.
