Stanford imaging workshop: Advanced transmission electron microscopy for in-situ and environmental studies

Stanford Nano Shared Facilities (SNSF), Gatan, and DENSsolutions invite you to attend this unique workshop demonstrating the applications of high speed imaging, electron energy loss spectroscopy, in-situ, and environmental (scanning) transmission electron microscopy ((S)TEM).

This comprehensive, full-day workshop will feature lectures by leading experts, open Q&A sessions, and live microscope demonstrations on gas-solid reactions at the state-of-the-art SNSF research complex. The microscope sessions will be performed on an aberration (image) corrected, monochromated FEI Titan environmental (S)TEM equipped with a Gatan OneView®in-situ camera (winner of the 2015 Microscopy Today Innovation Award), Gatan GIF Quantum® ERS imaging filter, plus a Wildfire heating holder and Climate 3+ flow gas system by DENSsolutions.

Registration is free. All confirmed particpants will receive a complimentary breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. Seating is limited, so register early.
