2018 Arizona State University Winter School

The aim of Winter School, hosted by Arizona State University, is to introduce the theory and practice of high-resolution electron microscopy to scientists currently using transmission electron microscopes for materials science studies. It is expected that people taking the course will have some familiarity with basic crystallography, diffraction contrast, and routine microscope operation. Interactive lectures and laboratories will cover:

  • Fundamentals of HREM
  • Imaging Theory
  • Transfer Functions in HREM
  • Electron Diffraction
  • Small Probe Formation
  • Fundamentals of STEM
  • Practical HREM/STEM Operation
  • Techniques for Image Calculation
  • Image Processing Techniques
  • Convergent Beam Microdiffraction
  • Electron Energy-Loss Spectroscopy
  • Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy
  • Focused Ion Beam (FIB) Methods
  • In-Situ Technique

The course will use a variety of transmission electron microscopes. Demonstrations of environmental electron microscopy, focused ion beam methods and techniques of specimen preparation are included. 

Gatan is a sponsor of the school.
