Online courses covering the fundamentals of atomic force microscopy will be offered beginning August 27, 2012, by nanoHUB-U, an initiative founded by the Network for Computational Nanotechnology and Purdue University.
This two-part, web-based course was developed by Professors Arvind Raman and Ron Reifenberger in response to enthusiastic feedback received on video lectures they developed at Purdue University in 2009 that discussed all aspects of scanning probe microscopy (SPM). The original video lectures have attracted 7,000+ viewers worldwide since they were posted on nanoHUB.org, a nanoscience and nanotechnology resource created by the Network for Computational Nanotechnology.
The course content has been refined and condensed from the original 15-week (1 semester) course offered at Purdue University beginning in 2009 into two, five-week online courses. The courses develop a unified framework for understanding the multifaceted aspects of atomic force microscopy and cover the material presented in a semester-long Purdue University course without the need for admission, registration, or travel. The online courses can be taken from anywhere in the world from August through November 2012. Each week contains six 20-minute video lectures covering the topics outlined here.
