Advances in electron microscopy have opened an era of atomic resolution imaging and spectroscopy of materials and devices, from twists in 2D materials to strain at interfaces in atomically engineered heterostructures. Recent developments in novel imaging and detector modes, atonic-resolution spectroscopy and 3D imaging, cryogenic imaging and in-situ sample control are now a crucial part of the materials design loop, extending the reach of electron microscopy.
From June 13-18, 2021 PARADIM will host the 2nd Summer School on Electron Microscopy. The School will cover 2D, 3D and 4D imaging in the scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM), and will explore fundamental and practical aspects of aberration correction, electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS), spectroscopic mapping, cryogenic STEM and imaging using pixelated detectors. The Summer School is divided into morning lectures and afternoon hands-on labs on state-of-the-art scanning transmission electron microscopes as well as on simulation and analysis software.
Registration (incl. fees & meals) will be provided. Attendees cover travel & lodging in affordable on-campus housing. Participants from non-R1 U.S. research institutions and colleges are encouraged to apply for a travel/housing grant.
