 > Overview
 >
 > Microsensors (pH, dissolved oxygen, and ion selective) are becoming
 > indispensable tools for studying biofilms and probing near surface
 > chemistries at the microscale level. The goal of this workshop is to
 > provide the participants with the knowledge necessary to design,
 > manufacture, and apply such microsensors. The workshop is being sponsored
 > by the Biofilm Structure and Function Research Group at the Center for
 > Biofilm Engineering, Montana State University. Members of this group have
 > extensive experience in the design, manufacture, and use of microsensors.
 > For details, please consult http://www.erc.montana.edu/.

 >
 > Agenda
 > The workshop will be held from Monday, August 20, until Friday, August 24.
 > Daily activities include lectures, followed by hands-on lab sessions. On
 > Wednesday, August 22, there will be a field trip to Yellowstone National
 > Park, where the workshop participants will see how to use the microsensors
 > in the field.
 >
 >       The following topics will be covered  during the workshop.
 >
 > Lectures topics
 >
 > *     Basic electrochemistry for microsensor operation
 > *     Potentiometric microsensors
 > *     Amperometric microsensors
 > *     Fiber optic microsensors
 > *     Components of microelectrodes, where to buy, how to stock
 > *     Description of construction process
 > *     Electrometers and picoammeters - basic principles and how to use
 > them with microsensors
 > *     Dissolved oxygen, H2O2, H2S, pH, CO2, diffusivity, local mass
 > transport microsensors
 > *     The last morning session will consist of a brief introduction to
 > biofilm reactors, biofilm preparation and quantifying biofilm structure
 >
 >
 > Laboratory practice sessions
 >
 > *     Construction and use of oxygen microelectrodes
 > *     Construction and use of H2O2 microelectrodes
 > *     Construction and use of pH microelectrodes with LIX  membranes
 > *     Construction and use of fiber optic microsensors
 > *     Computer assisted micromanipulation and data acquisition
 > *     Results interpretation

 > Registration
 > Because the number of participants is limited,  reservations will be
 > accepted on a first come, first served basis. The cost of the workshop is
 > $2,500, which includes the workshop materials, the field trip to
 > Yellowstone National Park, a  farewell dinner, continental breakfast each
 > morning, and coffee during breaks. Participants are responsible for their
 > own accommodations and transportation (except the field trip to
 > Yellowstone National Park). The deadline for the registration is June 15,
 > 2001.
