Advanced EELS and EFTEM Workshop at Harvard University

Location: Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS), Room 303, Laboratory for Integrated Science and Engineering (LISE) Building

This workshop combines presentations and extensive hands-on training on advanced EELS and EFTEM techniques and applications in the (S)TEM microscope. Practical experience with EELS is highly recommended. Participants will learn best practices to set up and optimize their EELS hardware and experimental protocols so they can capture and extract the maximum amount of compositional and chemical information from their TEM samples. Topics include:

  • Advanced EELS acquisition techniques – extended dynamic range and DualEELS™
  • Advanced EELS processing techniques, MLLS and NLLS fitting
  • Aberration correction
  • Quantification using EELS
  • Ultrafast compositional mapping
  • High energy resolution chemical mapping and identification of different chemical phases
  • High energy resolution EELS STEM analysis
  • Atomic resolved level analysis using EELS
  • How to best optimize the spectrometer and increase the sensitivity
  • How to set up the microscope to get the best EELS results
