NorTEMnet workshop on STEM in Trondheim

– The 4th NorTEMnet workshop on advanced TEM is organized at NTNU in Trondheim, January 8-10. 2014

This workshop focuses on STEM - there will be three days of lectures, computer exercises and hands-on practical sessions using the new NORTEM infrastructure in Trondheim (JEOL 2100, 2100F and ARM200F). We invite PhD students, postdocs and researchers from the Nordic countries working with (S)TEM to participate.

The six labs will be organized in six groups of three. All participants will have 3 computer exercises and 3 practical TEM labs. Knut Mueller and Lewys Jones will organize the computer exercises. The 3 TEM labs will be given by JEOL application specialist Régis Ravelle-Chapuis and local TEM microscopistes at the three new NORTEM JEOL instruments, demonstrating HRSTEM on the aberration corrected ARM, STEM tomography on the 2100F and lower magnification STEM on the 2100 LaB6 instrument. 


The workshop is free of charge, but you have to apply/register before December 10th 2013.

(Registration form for NorTEMnet workshop on STEM)
