A digital workshop on advanced electron microscopy data analysis is organized by NTNU in Trondheim, Norway, 21-23 June 2021.

The focus of the workshop is learning how to analyse the often very complex data generated by the transmission electron microscopy (TEM).

We start every morning of this three days’ workshop with 2 lectures from our invited experts. In the afternoons, hands-on introductions and practices will be given on how to use various open-source scientific python packages to analyse data from a variety of TEM techniques: atomic resolution STEM, EELS, EDX, scanning electron diffraction and 4D-STEM.

We invite PhD candidates, postdocs and researchers working with TEM in the physical sciences to participate.


Confirmed invited speakers and course leaders

  • Katherine MacArthur, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany
  • Colin Ophus, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, US
  • Magnus Nord, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway

Each day there will be lecture from 09-11, a break from 11-13 and practice between 13 and 16. All times given in CET (GMT+1). Everything will happen digitally. Practical details about the practices will come later.  



Monday 21. June: Introduction (basic image formation) + Analyzing images (2D)

Tuesday 22. June: Spectroscopy – EDS and EELS (3D) 

Wednesday 23. June: 4DSTEM - DPC / Strain mapping (4D)

The afternoon practices will be ‘hands-on’ instructions, using Python codes, starting with introduction to image analysis, and including HyperSpy, Atomap and PY4DSTEM (PyXem). Practical details about the practices will come later.



Register for the NordTEMHub DIGITAL Workshop 2021

Participation is free, but you have to register before 10 June 2021 to get the links to be used.

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.
