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
Everyone is welcome!
If you would like to attend some of the lectures and you not registered, you need to send us
