CCMX - ScopeM Advanced Course

5 - 8 November 2018 - ETH Zürich, Hönggerberg — Combining Structural & Analytical Investigations of Matter at the Micro-, Nano and Atomic Scale

Please see the course's dedicated site here for full details and registration>>

This course focuses on morphological and analytical structure research methods through the use of electrons, photons and ions for material science.

Presentations focus on theoretical background knowledge and challenges for analytical imaging in various types of materials. Each lecture will contain a discussion on examples from the speakers' own experiences or those from literature, including comments on the advantages, limitations and opportunities related to the methods discussed.

The course also features a special focus on sample preparation for analytical structure research in respect to resolution, sensitivity and the accuracy of each method. This theoretical part will be followed by demonstrations and instrument visits to deepen the gained knowledge in practical environments
