5th Quantitative Electron Microscopy school, 9-21 May 2021, Port-Bacarès, France

QEM2021 is the 5th edition of the very successful QEM (Quantative Electron Microscopy) school. It is a 2 weeks school centered around advanced electron microscopy techniques. This edition will be held in Port-Bacarès in the south of France at 350 meter from the Mediterranean Sea from the 9th to the 21st of May 2021.

Participants will learn from renowned experts about for example quantitative crystallography, tomography, electron energy-loss spectroscopy and electron holography. They will put in practice these lectures in form of practical exercises also lead by renowned scientists. The participants will also be able to test a JEOL F2 TEM install for the all duration of the school on their own samples. This school is an opportunity for PhD students and post-docs to develop their skills in transmission electron microscopy and learn how to get the best of it.

Advanced Topics in Aberration-Corrected STEM: Theory meets Experiment, 10-15 July, 2020, Daresbury, U.K.

The 8th SuperSTEM Summer School on “Advanced Topics in Aberration-Corrected STEM: Theory meets Experiment”, will be held at the SuperSTEM Laboratory, in Daresbury, U.K., between the 10th - 15th of July 2020.

The 2020 Summer School builds on the established series of schools and workshops held at SuperSTEM every two years. Following recent advances in instrumentation, this year’s school will address advanced topics in Cs-corrected STEM and spectroscopy techniques and introduce theoretical methodologies & computational tools necessary to rationalize and simulate experimental findings.

Topics covered:

  • principles of aberration diagnosis & correction
  • advanced imaging theory
  • EELS & EDX spectroscopy
  • quantitative image analysis and simulations
  • Introduction to DFT and band structure calculations.

The lectures will be complemented by practicals in small groups, including hands on operation of the SuperSTEM instruments and introduction to theoretical calculations and EELS simulations using CASTEP.

The lectures are intended for PhD students, post-doctoral researchers as well as academics and professionals that have an existing background in electron microscopy or relevant theoretical background.

Please note that due to a limited number of available places a two-stage registration process will be followed.

4th International Workshop on TEM Spectroscopy in Materials Science, June 17-19, 2019, Uppsala, Sweden

4th International Workshop on TEM Spectroscopy in Materials Science is organized on June 17-19 at Ångstrom Lab. The workshop treats, besides spectroscopy in a transmission electron microscope also the field of data and image treatment and tomography. In addition, the Zeiss and Tescan company will have presentations related to the FIB.

80 years Electron Microscopy, November 27, 2018, Uppsala, Sweden

Dear friends of Electron Microscopy,

Had you thought that microscopy could image information coming from the space between two atoms. Well, we can do this now!

One of the corner stones to this development was laid 80 years ago by Manne Siegbahn who has constructed the first transmission electron microscope in Sweden. We will celebrate this event with a symposium reviewing the early history but also the current and future developments of the electron microscope and its use.

We cordially invite you to the "80 years electron microscopy" symposium held at the Ångström Laboratory in Uppsala on 27th November 2018.

The event includes a lunch mingle, so please, register for the event by sending an email to:
