A workshop on Electron diffraction for solving engineering problems will be organized at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway, 21.-23. June 2022.

This year’s workshop will focus on how we can use electron diffraction in TEM and SEM –how to deal with ‘real’ materials, the possibilities given by better cameras, and post processing and data analysis on how to get the most out of your results. In these three days’ workshop, invited experts and skilled educators in this field will address the essentials and the latest developments through lecture, computer exercise and hands-on practical sessions using the NORTEM infrastructure in Trondheim.

Lectures will cover different qualitative and quantitative methods in electron diffraction and how it can be used for engineering problems.We start every morning with lectures.  In the afternoons, experiment demos on the TEMs and computer practices on data analysis will be given. We will teach how to use various open-source scientific python packages to analyze diffraction data. If (because of Covid) physical presence will be difficult, the workshop will be transferred to digital, with lectures and computer exercises.

We invite PhD students, postdocs and researchers working with TEM and SEM in the physical sciences to participate!


Confirmed invited speakers and course leaders

Local staff (Håkon Wiik Ånes, Emil Frang Christiansen and Magnus Nord)  will participate in running computer exercises.

Each day there will be lectures from 09 to 11, lunch and discussions from 11 to 13 and lab/computer exercises between 13 and 16.



At Comfort Hotel Park, Trondheim, single rooms will include breakfast and free WiFi, coffee and tea and access to fitness room and sauna at a price of 1085 NOK person/night. Participants have to order and pay accommodation themselves. To get this discount, the hotel accommodation have to be booked directly from the hotel (phone +4773833900 or mail co.park@choice.no ) before 23. May by using the reference code GB000264. The workshop starts Tuesday morning, so you should organize travel to Trondheim Monday night latest. The workshop ends Thursday evening at 17.00. 



Register for the ESTEEM3 Workshop in Trondheim

Participation is free, but you have to register BEFORE 20. APRIL 2022!

There will be a maximum of 24 participants in the afternoon practice sessions. In case of large interest, priority will be given to early career scientists active in the field.
