EELS & EFTEM Analysis Training School - October 2018

School fee: $1,750.00 USD

Electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) is a powerful technique that provides both compositional and chemical information from sub-nanometer areas in the sample. As a course attendee, you will learn best practices to set up and optimize your EELS hardware and experimental protocols so you can capture and extract the maximum amount of compositional and chemical information from your TEM samples. Topics include:

  • Fundamentals of EELS and energy-filtered imaging in TEM
  • Principles of operation of Gatan EFTEM and EELS systems
  • Optimization of EFTEM and EELS data acquisition
  • Quantification of elemental composition
  • Other information provided by EFTEM/EELS and how best to extract it
  • Use of EELS signals to form maps of elemental and chemical composition
  • EFTEM and STEM EELS spectrum imaging techniques
  • Identification of material phases via EELS fine structure mapping
  • Applications to biological and physical science specimens
