Materials in Science and Technology 2014 (MIST 2014)

Materials in Science and Technology 2014 (MIST 2014)
October 13-19, 2014, Oludeniz, Fethiye, Turkey

MIST 2014 includes two international conferences and one autumn school:
2nd International Multidisciplinary Microscopy Congress (INTERM 2014)
2nd International Congress on Energy Efficiency and Energy Related Materials (ENEFM 2014)
Autumn International School on Growth and Characterization of Advanced Materials (AISMAT 2014)

Thermo Scientific Microanalysis Educational Workshops 2014

Thermo Scientific Microanalysis Educational Workshops
Dates and locations available across Europe

Find microanalysis a puzzle or simply need a refresher?  Join our panel of experts at one of our FREE microanalysis workshops at a location near you.  Gather new information or refresh your knowledge on EDS analysis and broaden your skills in chemical analysis within the SEM and TEM.

The  comprehensive program of vendor neutral presentations will cover all stages of the microanalysis experiment:

  • Electron beam interactions and X-ray generation in the electron microscope.
  • Selecting the right X-ray detector for your application.
  • Considerations for energy resolution, solid angle/crystal size, and light element performance.
  • How to properly prepare samples.
  • Best practices for operating the SEM in analysis mode.
  • Qualitative spectroscopy, quantitative analysis, and mapping.
  • Learn how phase mapping and principal component analysis improve large area mapping.
  • The benefits of adding WDS and EBSD analysis to your SEM.

Microscopy and spectroscopy of materials for power generation and for energy conversion and storage session in Microscopy & Microanalysis 2014

Dear colleagues,
we are pleased to invite your contributions to the Session on 
Microscopy and spectroscopy of materials for power generation and for energy conversion and storage

Eva Olsson, Chalmers University, Gothenburg, Sweden
WolfgangJaeger, University of Kiel, Kiel, Germany
Feng Wang, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton NY, USA

M&M 2014  Microscopy & Microanalysis 2014
Microscopy Society of America, August 3-7, 2014, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Among the most important challenges are reduction of energy consumption and environmentally friendly power generation and conversion. The performance of materials for energy technology is determined by their functional structure. This symposium will cover aspects of structure, properties and life-cycle analysis of materials for power generation, energy conversion, renewability, storage and reduced energy consumption.

The topics include microscopy and spectroscopy investigations including techniques of Cs aberration correctedelectron microscopy, monochromated spectroscopy and in situ microscopy in

  • Photovoltaics
  • Nuclear technology
  • Fuel cells
  • Ion conductors
  • Energy storage
  • Thermoelectrics
  • Correlation between synthesis, structure and properties
  • Specimen preparation for microscopy studies
