"Del primer STM a Catalunya als microscopis actuals" (UAB, 16 Nov 2021)

We celebrate the 40 years of STM and 35 years of AFM for the SC21CAT.

05 November 2021

In the Framework of the Setmana de la Ciència 2021 and to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the  Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) and the 35th Anniversary of the Atomic forcé Microscope (ATM)ICMABICN2IMB-CNM and UAB Faculty of Sciences invite you to attend the following event to celebrate the anniversary of the installation of the first STM in Catalonia, at the Faculty of Sciences of the UAB, where it can still be seen today.

The event "From the first STM in Catalonia to current microscopes" (Del primer STM a Catalunya als microscopis actuals) will be a hybrid event (face-to-face and virtual) that will review the past, present and future of the STM and the advances it meant for microscopy and the nanotechnology revolution, It will feature short talks by researchers who were involved in the first steps of the STM in Catalonia or who are currently working on its various applications. There will also be a round table, a connection with an AFM laboratory and a competition with questions for the audience.
