Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Workshop: Scanning Probe Microscopy

NT-MDT collage

ABSTRACT: Over the last 25 years, NT-MDT has been involved in the development, production and support of research instrumentation, primarily, atomic force microscopes (AFM) and its combinations with ultrahigh-resolution spectroscopy for nanotechnology and its applications. NT-MDT’s pathway has been marked by the creation of a large number of devices, whose functions and capabilities cover the broad range of customer needs in different areas: material science, inorganic chemistry, biology, and others. NT-MDT pioneering efforts led to the impressive combination of scanning probe microscopy with Raman spectroscopy.

During the workshop, NT-MDT team will show the unique capabilities of Atomic Force Microscopes that help to uncover the secrets of the nanoworld, discuss different applications, including high-resolution measurements, electrical measurements, nanomanipulations, and perform live measurements of different samples, including samples of workshop participants.

If you are interested to participate in the workshop please send an e-mail  to secure the spot. We will apply the first-asked first-served policy.
