|Title:||Techniques for Combinatorial and High-Throughput Microscopy. Part 1: Gradient Specimen Fabrication for Polymer Thin Films Research|
|Published:||January 01, 2003|
|Abstract:||Combinatorial and high-throughput (C&HT) approaches accelerate research by addressing multiple experimental parameters in a parallel highly efficient fashion. As with traditional materials science, microscopy and imaging of morphology are essential for C&HT materials research. However, strategies for fabricating specimen arrays amenable to characterization by automated microscopic analysis are not always available or affordable. In response to such needs, the NIST Combinatorial Methods Center (NCMC) provides education, information and measurement solutions to industries and individuals for C&HT materials research capabilities. Part 1 of 2 outlines NCMC-developed gradient specimens suited for C&HT research.|
