||Characterizing the mechanical properties of materials using indentation has been around for centuries. It was only recently that it emerged as a technique of choice for characterizing soft and biological materials at the micro and nano scale levels. It has also been used in understanding the different cell functions and in assessing the soundness of various nanoBIO devices.
The nanoBIO node at Illinois is organizing a workshop to discuss the current and future trends in nanoindentation and its applications in mechanotransduction and mechanical characterization of soft materials.
The workshop will be held at the Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory (MNTL) at the University of Illinois at the Urbana-Champaign campus on April 1-2, 2015.
