Arizona State University 2015 Winter SchooL


High Resolution Electron microscopy

Monday, January 5th to Friday, January 9th, 2015

The aim of Winter School is to introduce the theory and practice of high resolution electron microscopy to scientists currently using transmission electron microscopes for materials science studies. It is expected that people taking the course will have some familiarity with basic crystallography, diffraction contrast and routine microscope operation.
Interactive lectures and laboratories will cover:
  • theory and practice of HREM and STEM
  • small probe formation
  • aberration correction
  • electron diffraction
  • image calculations and processing
  • electron energy loss
  • x-ray nanospectroscopy
  • focused ion beam
The course will use a variety of JEOL and FEI transmission electron microscopes.  Demonstrations of environmental electron microscopy, focused ion beam methods and techniques of specimen preparation are included.
