Emerging Photovoltaics Webinar

AFM Characterization of Emerging Photovoltaics Webinar September 13, 2018 at 11:30am EDT

September 13, 2018
11:30am-12:30pm EDT 
(3:30-4:30pm UTC)

This free webinar, held in conjunction with the Materials Research Society (MRS), provides an overview of AFM applications for emerging photovoltaics including hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites and organic semiconductors.

• Discover the latest AFM techniques to accurately map local photocurrent, work function, and other electrical response in photoactive materials and charge transport layers

• See real-world results from leading researchers in the field on a variety of photovoltaic systems using standard and advanced AFM techniques

• Learn how AFM has become simpler with turnkey instrumentation for better AFM optical experim
