This week on Covalent Academy, we will be continuing our Surface Roughness webinar miniseries.

Part 2/3 in the series, Optical Profilometry: Surface Roughness Characterization for Smooth Operators, will be offered Wednesday of next week, April 15th, 11am PDT.

Our resident expert on optical profilometry and spectroscopy, Matthew Wong, will be guiding you through the optical techniques we use to analyze the topography of surfaces. This includes: laser scanning confocal microscopy, white light interferometry, wide-area patterned light, and chromatic aberration. He will cover their strengths and limitations, and explore which technique is best-suited to different applications.

Covalent Academy Ep.02

Covalent Academy Episode 2

April 3, 2020

Coming up next on Covalent Academy: a 3 part mini-series on Surface Roughness. This sample property has a number of repercussions for the material’s overall functionality, and can be measured in a variety of ways. Our miniseries will cover a selection of instrumentation options for surface profilometry, and discuss optimization strategies to achieve the best results.

We will be kicking off this series with an introduction to surface roughness provided by our VP of Technology, Chris Moore, PhD. He will describe the property and its implications, and then give an overview of analytical methods used to characterize it.

The talk, Surface Roughness 101: which technique is right for you? will air on Wednesday, April 8th, at 11am PDT.
