Event Name

HREM Winter School

Start Date 7th Jan 2019
End Date 11th Jan 2019

The purpose of the 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. People taking the course should have some familiarity with basic crystallography, diffraction contrast and routine microscope operation.

The Winter School course features extended practical sessions using a variety of FEI, JEOL and Nion transmission electron microscopes, where specific operating techniques will be taught.

There will be sessions on image processing and simulations using advanced digital image processing programs. Lectures and laboratory demonstrations will be given by ASU faculty and EMC/CHREM staff, as well as invited experts.
