20th TEM-UCA Summer Workshop

University of Cadiz (UCA) will organize its 20th edition of the TEM-UCA Summer Workshop entitled "Transmission Electron Microscopy of Nanomaterials" which will take place at the University of Cadiz, from 12th to 16th September 2022. Register here

About the workshop

The TEM-UCA Summer Workshop on "Transmission Electron Microscopy of Nanomaterials" is devoted to reviewing the advancements of Transmission Electron Microscopy, both imaging and spectroscopic techniques, in the characterization of a wide range of nanomaterials. The Workshop is limited to a maximum number of 24 attendees. Our attendees are people currently working or interested in the field of nanomaterials and their characterization by TEM.


Several Speakers will illustrate 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. Some examples illustrate the practical aspects of nanomaterials characterization and its applications in different fields.

Practical Lab

The participants will be divided into 2 groups to participate in computer labs in which they will get trained in the practical use of different software applications in the field of TEM. The topics covered in these computers labs are:

  • High-Resolution Electron Microscopy (HREM),
  • Image Processing and Image Simulations.
  • Modelling of Nanoparticles,
  • Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS),
  • X-Ray Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDX) and Electron Tomography.


The workshop will take place from Monday 12th to Friday 16th September 2022, at the Facultad de Ciencias, Campus Universitario de Puerto Real.
