EM Autumn School 2017

From October 9 through October 12, the autumn school on electron microscopy in materials science will take place at the Harnack House in Berlin. This school offers both practical courses as well as lectures on different aspects of modern electron microscopy. The school will start Monday morning end with a BBQ on Thursday evening.

Location: Harnack House in Berlin

Time: Monday, Oct 9, 9:00 am until Thursday, Oct. 12, 18:00 (and BBQ thereafter)

Programme: A tentative programme may be found here.

Topics being covered during lectures include:

  • Inline and off-axis electron holography
  • Tomography
  • Electron energy loss spectroscopy
  • Electron crystallography
  • Specimen preparation by focused ion beam (FIB)
  • Scanning electron microscopy, ion microscopy and correlative approaches

On Monday evening, participants are invited to present posters of their work (max. size: A0)
