PHI's Virtual Fall Workshop

Join us to learn recent developments and explore applications in applied surface analysis. The three days will be filled with invited speakers, live Q&A, and other highlights from our customers and PHI lab scientists.

November 17, 18, 19    
10 a.m. - Noon (CST) each day

Workshop topics will include talks on sample preparation, application of XPS, AES and TOF-SIMS for fundamental and applied research, use of correlative surface analysis utilizing PHI USA instruments and advances in data collection and processing.
