Second Conference on Force Spectroscopy and Microscopy

The Second Edition of the National Conference on Force Spectroscopy and Microscopy will be held at Tamhini, a beautiful village in the western ghats between Mumbai and Pune. This conference aims to unite diverse groups of people using force spectroscopy and microscopy measurement in their research. From biological materials such as lipids, cells, proteins and tissues to materials and tribology research, force measurement at the scale of pN to nN has become indispensable. The conference will discuss various scientific and technical advances at this frontier of science. For more details please visit:
