Classes and Workshops

CHEM 634

For the 2014 winter term , the CHEM 634 will be given once a week on Tuesday from 2:35-5:00 pm, in Otto Maass 328, at McGill U.

Description: A series of research-level seminars about topics of current interest in advanced materials. The focus of the course is at the instrumental methods for preparation and characterization of organic and inorganic advanced materials. This includes new techniques in molecular and atomic imaging (AFM/STM), new methods of synthesis of nanostructured and bio-materials, characterization of surfaces and ultrathin films (surface spectroscopies), advanced polymeric materials, etc. The seminars will be given by guest lecturers (from McGill and outside universities and industries) who are the leading experts in their relevant fields of research.

Everyone is welcome! If you would like to attend some of the lectures and you not registered, you need to send us an email to reserve your spot and specify the date, since the spaces are limited.
