About the workshop

Entitled "Electron diffraction for solving engineering problems", this workshop will be held by NTNU in Trondheim (Norway), from 21 to 23 June 2022.

Attention: if (because of Covid-19 context) physical presence will be difficult, the workshop will be transferred to a digital format, with lectures and computer exercises.

This year’s workshop will focus on how we can use electron diffraction in TEM and SEM –how to deal with ‘real’ materials, the possibilities given by better cameras, and post processing and data analysis on how to get the most out of your results.

In this three days’ workshop, invited experts and skilled educators in this field will address the essentials and the latest developments through lectures, computer exercises, and hands-on practical sessions using the NORTEM infrastructure in Trondheim.

Lectures will cover different qualitative and quantitative methods in electron diffraction and how they can be used for engineering problems.

Invited speakers and course leaders:

Local staff who will participate in running computer exercises:

NTNU will start every morning with lectures. In the afternoons, experiment demos on the TEMs and computer practices on data analysis will be given. Moreover, the team will teach how to use various open-source scientific Python packages to analyze diffraction data.

Concretely, each day will take place as follows: 

  • 09:00 - 11:00 Lectures
  • 11:00 - 13:00 Lunch and discussions
  • 13:00 - 16:00 Lab and computer exercises


  • Ph.D. students, postdocs, and researchers working with TEM and SEM in the physical sciences are invited to participate!
  • Participation is free, but you have to register before 20th April 2022.
  • Registration can be done here!
  • Attention: There will be a maximum of 24 participants in the afternoon practice sessions. In case of large interest, priority will be given to early career scientists active in the field.
