Transmission electron microscopy (TEM)

TEM Gemini Centre

TEM Gemini Centre is working in Materials Physics, Materials Science and Metallurgy. We are studying a broad range of different materials on the atomic level. The main tool is the transmission electron microscope (TEM).

The research team consisting of professors, postdocs, students and engineers at Department of Physics, Department of Materials Science and Engineering (NTNU) and researchers at Department of Synthesis and Properties (SINTEF).

TEM introduction course

Are you a Master student, PhD, Post Doc or other researcher who needs to learn more about what TEM is, what it can do and how to interpret the results? We will give a short introduction course in week 38-39 that is open for everyone interested, however with a limited number of places.

TEM introduction course

Are you a Master student, PhD, Post Doc or other researcher who needs to learn more about what TEM is, what it can do and how to interpret the results? We will give a short introduction course in week 38-39 that is open for everyone interested, however with a limited number of places.

We will this year again organize a short introduction course in (scanning) transmission electron microscopy ((S)TEM) useful for everyone interested in (S)TEM for their research. The TEM introduction course will be intensive and given as six 2-hour lectures in weeks 38 and 39 (second part of September).

Topics covered are basic aspects of TEM for physics and materials science research:
- Introduction to electron microscopy
- Electron specimen interactions
- (S)TEM instrumentation
- Electron diffraction
- Contrast mechanisms in TEM (BF/DF/HREM)
- Short intro to analytical techniques as energy dispersive and electron energy loss spectroscopy

We invite and recommend PhD and Master students who want to be introduced to (S)TEM to participate in this course! SINTEF researchers who are involved in projects with TEM are also invited to participate!
