Webinar Announcement – July 31 – New developments in gas chromatography. Professor Xudong “Sherman” Fan from Michigan’s Biomedical Engineering Department

Professor Xudong “Sherman” Fan from Michigan’s Biomedical Engineering Department will be discussing his work in 2D and 3D MEMS and micro fabricated gas chromatographs on July 31 at 3pm ET.  These devices have higher separation capability and chemical detection abilities than other gas chromatogralphs because of non-destructive on-column vapor detectors  flow modulators, and smart control scheme.  To attend the free live event, visit the WIMS2 homepage and click on the webinar icon on the right side of the page.  If you can’t attend the live event, the webinar will be recorded and will be available afterwards at http://wims2.org/media/webinars along with other webinars in our series.

Nanoscale Dynamic Mechanical Testing: New Innovations in Materials Characterization – Wednesday, 17th July 2013 | 11am EDT, 4pm BST, 5pm CEST

As materials technology advances, greater performance is often achieved by controlling the structure of a material at smaller and smaller scales. Development of materials with smaller constituents, thinner films or coatings, and increasing microstructural complexity require characterization techniques to advance accordingly.

This webinar is part of a series that will explore how nanoindentation has emerged as a flexible and practical method for probing the mechanical properties of small volumes of material. In this first webinar, we will explore some of the latest advancements in dynamic mechanical testing that are available today. These techniques can be applied to measuring a wide variety of materials used in aerospace, semiconductor, automotive, biological, and energy related industries.

You’ll learn about:

-Overview of nanomechanical characterization and dynamic testing at the nanoscale
-Current challenges facing traditional dynamic testing
-Quantitative mechanical property measurements at the nano to micro scale
-Dramatic improvements upon the capabilities of traditional instrumented indentation, with Hysitron’s nanoDMA® III dynamic testing package
-Applications and results using nanoDMA III’s advanced dynamic testing
-A sneak preview of our next webinar covering nanoscale dynamic testing at high temperatures

Webinar Announcement – next steps of concentrated photovoltaic industry

PV Insider confirm Amonix and Solaria to present on free online webinar covering CPV’s viability and prospects in 2013 and beyond.

The CPV industry has suffered mixed fortunes in the past twelve months.  High profile exits such as the failure of GreenVolts overshadowed major developments including new efficiency records and project progress, such as Soitec’s 44MWp project in Touwsrivier, South Africa.

These landmarks have left the wider industry uncertain on the future of the technology, with a number of questions on CPV’s viability still to be answered.  To tackle these issues in detail, PV Insider have organized a complimentary 60 minute webinar on Wednesday 26 June.

During the webinar, Vahan Garboushian (CTO and Founder, Amonix) and Mike Mehawich (Senior Director, Product Management, Solaria) will discuss the current status of the technology, strategies for competitiveness and the latest applications and markets opening for CPV.

Participants will be able to take part in a live Q&A as well as a series of industry polls.  It will run on Wednesday 26 June at 9.00am Pacific / 12.00pm Eastern / 6pm Central European Time.

The webinar can be joined for free at https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/638935006

Webinar Announcement – Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer

Advancing materials analysis using a Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer

Spectrophotometric measurements are key in the understanding of the optical properties of new material development and in quality analysis and quality control. The ability to measure absolute reflection and transmission at variable angles unattended is a key requirement in advanced spectrophotometry. In this webinar, we explore several applications of Universal Measurement Spectrophotometry and demonstrate its utility in the analysis of advanced materials such as specialized coatings, thin films, metamaterials, photovoltaics and glass, and we introduce the novel capabilities of the Agilent Cary UMS. If you are working in any of these fields this webinar will give you unique insights into how to explore the properties of such materials using spectrophotometry.

Who should attend:
• Researchers and teaching staff in spectrophotometry and optical analysis
• Persons with an interest in thin films, metamaterials, photovoltaics
• Anyone with a general interest in the latest optical analysis techniques

Travis Burt, Agilent UV-Vis-NIR Product Manager

Stewart Bland, Editor, Materials Today

A live question and answer session will follow the presentation.
