1st Kleindiek Nanotechnik Practical User Workshop

April 25th and 26th, 2018

We're trying something new!


The User Workshop is designed to allow a small group of people gain (and share) experience, tips&tricks, and knowhow in using the micromanipulators to manipulate nanowires and other small structures.


The idea is to give our users the opportunity to learn the best strategies for specific tasks and provide their feedback to our team for future improvements/developments.


If you wish to participate, we are now accepting submissions of experiment proposals. These proposals should be very compact - one or two pages should suffice. They should include a very short description of the task at hand as well as some images of your samples and optionally a 'cartoon' of what it is you'd like to to.


You are also welcome to register for the workshop without submitting a proposal and enjoy the learning experience! Each workshop will host up to ten participants.


Please visit this page regularly for updated information and to help you prepare for your workshop.


This first workshop will focus on manipulating and characterizing nanowires, CNTs, or other small particles. Here are some key facts about the workshop:

- free of charge for the participants (you'll need to cover travel & board)

- workshop language can be english or german

- in-depth training

- extensive hands-on sessions on your samples

- get to know the Kleindiek Nanotechnik team!


The proposal submission deadline is February 2nd, 2018.

Registration deadline is March 30th, 2018.

The workshop will be held April 25th & 26th, 2018.


If you are interested in taking part in the workshop, please submit your proposal to andrew.smith@kleindiek.com by February 2nd, 2018
