Event Name

Electron Crystallography School - New Methods and Applications

Start Date 17th Jun 2012
End Date 20th Jun 2012


The Electron Crystallography School – new methods and applications will be held at Arrhenius laboratory in Stockholm University, Sweden in June 16-20, 2012. We have invited several world-wide renounced experts in the field to give lectures covering the basics of electron crystallography as well as the frontier developments in the recent years. The topics include general crystallography, transmission electron microscopy, electron diffraction methods (electron diffraction tomography and precession electron diffraction) and structure solution methods using the electron data. The school also features lab sessions both on the TEM and computers to help the students get practical experiences of applications of the methods.
Students interested in learning the basics of electron crystallography and new methods recently developed are encouraged to apply. The deadline for registration is April 30, 2012. Financial support will be provided to a limited number of Ph.D. students to cover the registration fee and part of the travel expenses. The deadline for the application of financial support is March 31st, 2012.
The "International Symposium on Electron Crystallography and X-ray diffraction - from Materials Sciences to Structural Biology” will follow immediately after the Electron Crystallography School at Arrhenius laboratory in Stockholm University June 20-22, 2012. All are also welcome to join the symposium.
