The training course will focus on the challenges associated with the preparation, measurement and data analysis of nano particle reference materials within the framework of the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) project nPSize. The metrology of SEM, TEM and AFM methods for particle imaging will be presented as well as a hybrid metrology approach, standardization and machine learning for advanced analysis of measurement data.

The training course will include lectures from key stakeholders and project partners including BAM, LNE, PTB, SMD, Pollen, NIMS and VSL and is targeted at PhD students, reference materials providers, analysis and accredited laboratories and instrument manufacturers.
