Third edition of the course on "Characterization techniques for Particulate Materials" by the Soft Lab

The Soft Matrials Lab, run by Amable Bernabé, hosted from Monday, 5 October, to Wednesday, 7 October a course on "Characterization techniques for particulate materials". The course counted with 8 participants from different CSIC centers.
 
The course was an introduction to different techniques to characterize nanoparticles and other particulate matter, including the basic fundamentals, sample preparation, practical examples and results interpretation. 

It is the third edition in which Amable Bernabé, technician from the SoftLab, has decided to offer this course to all the CSIC community, so they can learn new methods to characterize nanoparticles, the theory behind the techniques, and how to manage the equipment.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the participants of the course were less than in previous years, and during the practical sessions the group was divided, so less people was at the same time inside the lab, and the safety measures could be kept.
