NanoMEGAS-Protochips workshop in Amiens

A new specialized workshop on nm scale orientation and phase mapping as well as liquid cell electrochemistry TEM will be held at the University of Picardy Jules Verne in Amiens, France, co-organized by both NanoMEGAS and Protochips, from 27 to 29 May 2019. 

Participants will learn about the potentials of liquid cell TEM imaging with a special focus on Poseidon EC experiments, as well as possibilities to perform nm scale orientation and phase mapping in various materials. During the workshop we will demonstrate an electrochemistry in-situ LCTEM experiment and also in-situ orientation/phase maps in liquid cells. More information here

EMAT - Workshop on Transmission Electron Microscopy

A state-of-the-art training in Transmission Electron Microscopy at the highest level is provided. Lectures will be given by staff members of the EMAT research group and special topics are covered by guest lecturers. The main focus of the workshop is to provide practical experience with a broad range of TEM instruments. We offer the choice between 3 different modules, “High resolution TEM” , “TEM Spectroscopy” and “In situ TEM”, preceded by a workshop on “Basic TEM”.

From 11 to 21 June 2019. More info here

Conventional and Counting EELS spectroscopy school

The Conventional and Counting EELS spectrocopy school is an intensive 4-day training school that incorporates lectures, computer laboratories, and microscope practicals to provide participants with comprehensive, hands-on training on key EELS topics and technology. The practical lessons will be made at the new Beyond-Nano Sub-Ångstom Lab on integrated JEOL GIF/EELS systems. 

Catania, 22-25 July 2019. More info on the Beyond Nano website. 

ESTEEM-Spectroscopy School

The ESTEEM3 Spectroscopy School at the FELMI Institute took place on February 4-7 2020 in Graz, Austria.
The spectroscopy school at the FELMI was a concentrated, four days hands-on laboratory workshop taking participants step-by-step through the many uses of electron energy-loss spectroscopy. The course aimed to familiarize participants with the latest EELS & EFTEM equipment and technologies, the fundamental principles of the technique, critical calibrations to obtain meaningful EELS spectra and with the latest software data processing tools.

Advanced in Situ Electron Microscopy of ICT Structures

The Webinar on "Considerations for in-situ mechanical, electrical and optical measurements of ICT materials in electron microscopes" took place on Friday 9 April 2021. It was organised by Lunjie Zeng, researcher at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden.
In this webinar, using semiconductor nanowires as examples, the participants discussed some of the considerations for in situ mechanical, electrical and optical measurements of ICT materials in electron microscopes. They explained and compared different approaches of transferring nanoscale samples into in situ electron microscopy sample holders. Also, there was a talk about how to treat and model electrical contacts in data analysis for reliably interpretating measurement results.

QEM: Review and New Advanced TEM techniques

The 5th edition of the Quantitative Electron Microscopy School took place from 8 to 20 May 2022 in Port Bacarès (France).
The QEM covered theoretical and practical aspects of most of the investigation techniques available in electron microscopy together with their recent developments. Each aspect was covered through lectures, "pen and paper" works, practical sessions on microscopes, and computer lab sessions. Round tables were also organized as lively debates in order to optimize the interaction of participants with the worldwide experts contributing to the school.

Electron diffraction for solving engineering problems

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) organised a workshop on Electron diffraction for solving engineering problems in Trondheim from 21 to 23 June 2022. This year’s workshop focused on how we can use electron diffraction in TEM and SEM. In this three days’ workshop, invited experts and skilled educators in this field addressed the essentials and the latest developments through lectures, computer exercises, and hands-on practical sessions using the NORTEM infrastructure in Trondheim. Lectures covered different qualitative and quantitative methods in electron diffraction and how they can be used for engineering problems.

TEM-UCA Transmission Electron Microscopy of Nanomaterials

University of Cadiz (UCA) organized its 20th edition of the TEM-UCA Summer Workshop entitled "Transmission Electron Microscopy of Nanomaterials" which took place at the University of Cadiz, from 12th to 16th September 2022.
The workshop was devoted to reviewing the advancements of Transmission Electron Microscopy, both imaging and spectroscopic techniques, in the characterization of a wide range of nanomaterials. Several Speakers illustrated how TEM techniques such as High-Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy, High Angle Annular Dark Field imaging, Electron Tomography, Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy, and Cs corrected S/TEM studies can be combined to obtain structural and chemical information on the analysed materials at the atomic scale.
