Surface Analysis and Characterization – an Instrument Workshop
1 December 2016
A one-day workshop on surface analysis and characterization instruments. During the day you will have the opportunity to get acquainted with a range of different techniques. During stops in the laboratories of SP Chemistry, Materials and Surface in Stockholm you will get concise information from our specialists and see the instruments. At the end of the day you will have acquired a better understanding of how results from these techniques can be used by your company/organization in research, product and process development and troubleshooting. Lecturers: SP researchers/instrument specialists. Fee: SEK 4500+25% VAT (approx. EUR 600). Further information here.

Course: Colloid Chemistry and Colloidal Dispersions
30 May-1 June 2017
Tentative date. Registration not yet open
This 3-day intensive course provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental and practical aspects of colloid chemistry and colloidal dispersions. The course is focused on particles that are dispersed in liquids. Nearby topics, such as surfactant chemistry, polymers in solution and emulsions, are also covered to some degree in order to make the course complete on a stand-alone basis.

Lecturers: Prof. Bengt Kronberg (SP), Dr. Martin Andersson (SP), Dr. Isabel Mira (SP), Dr. Mikael Kjellin (SP), Eva Blomberg (SP/KTH) and Prof. Mark Rutland (SP/KTH).
