2016 CCMR Symposium

The 2016 CCMR Symposium will highlight recent advances in novel characterization methods utilizing electrons for probing structural, physical and chemical properties of materials with spatial resolution ranging from atomic to macroscopic length scales. These characterization methods have impact across a broad range of disciplines in the physical and the life sciences, many with commercial applications. This year’s program will showcase recent advances in this rapidly advancing field including in-situ TEM to track crystal growth and electrochemical processes, cryo-electron microscopy to reveal the 3D structure of molecules and interfaces between liquid and solids, and aberration-corrected STEM to map magnetic fields.

Professor Joachim Frank (Columbia University) will present the 2016 Sproull Lecture. He will be joined by Dr. Richard Leapman, Chief of the Laboratory of Cellular Imaging and Macromolecular Biophysics at the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), Professor Darrin Pochan, Materials Science and Engineering, University of Delaware, Professor Rafal Dunin-Borkowski, Director of the Institute for Microstructure Research and the Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, and Prof. Philip Batson, Physics and Astronomy, Rutgers, and by faculty and students from Cornell University.

Gatan is a major sponsor of CCMR 2016.
