The Linz Winter Workshop will focus on biological single-molecule research and nanoscience, and include force and optical microscopy/spectroscopy techniques. This year, special sessions on nano-medicine and high-speed atomic force microscopy will be organized. It is the aim to provide a common platform for industry and academia.

Winter School

This is a school for young scientists and newcomers to learn about advanced atomic force microscopy techniques and fluorescence microscopy methods:

• High resolution imaging of live cells and bacteria
• High-speed atomic force microscopy
• Chemical functionalization of atomic force microscopy tips 
• Single molecule force spectroscopy
• Topography and recognition imaging
• Scanning microwave microscopy
• Single molecule fluorescence imaging
• FRET microscopy and electrophysiology in living cells
• Combined atomic force & fluorescence microscopy
