Title: Short course in polymer characterization - POLYCHAR 14

Task Group
Masaru Matsuo

Member: Yoshiyuki Einaga

Completion Date: 2006 - project completed

Provide knowledge on techniques of Polymer Characterization, particularly so for participants from third world countries. At the same time prepare the participants for understanding lectures and presentations during the following 14th Annual POLYCHAR World Forum on Advanced Materials (Polymer Applications & Theory).

The Short Course will be held by well-known experts in their field and will promote students, in particular newcomers in the field of Polymer Science, to participate in the Conference with a much better understanding, it offers an overview over the most important techniques of polymer characterization and introduction into recent developments. The course lecturers are available for the students throughout the days of the following Conference for further engrossing of the lectures.

There is a close correlation of the Conference and the Short Course since one of the goals of the Conference is to give young scientists the opportunity to present their results (there are particular prizes for young scientists). The Short Course focuses on techniques like Chromatography, Thermo-mechanical Analysis, Thermal Analysis, Scattering Techniques, Spectroscopic Methods, Microscopy, Dielectric Spectroscopy, Tribology and Volumetric Techniques with every year varying focal point.
