Basic Course in Scanning and Transmission Electron Microscopy (SEM/TEM) for Physical Sciences (1 ECTS) 21-23 February 2023
This course covers lectures and practical demonstrations in SEM and TEM techniques, specifically for materials science applications. The contents include principles of focused electron and ion beam microscopy, specimen preparation for EM imaging and advancements in electron microscopy such as high-resolution TEM, scanning TEM, electron diffraction, elemental analysis and in-situ electron microscopy. We encourage applications from doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers and technical staff in the field of physics, chemistry and geology with materials-of-interests such as metals, ceramics, polymers, semiconductors, optical and electronic materials, biomaterials and nanomaterials. For electron microscopy in life science applications, there will be similar-content basic course in autumn 2023.
Application deadline: The registration closes on February 14, 2023.
Location: Lectures at KBC Building and laboratory demonstrations at UCEM.
Participants: 18 persons
Instructors: UCEM staff
Duration: 3 days
Breaks/Refreshments: Coffee, cookies and fruit.
Costs: No course fee, but full attendance is required!
Examination/Credits: Oral and practical examinations are conducted during laboratory demonstrations. A course certificate will be given after participants attend all lectures and laboratory demonstrations for this 3-day course. UCEM recommends PhD program examiners to give 1 ECTS after successful participation.
