EELS & EFTEM Analysis Virtual Training School - April 2021

School fee: $250.00 USD

The premier EELS and EFTEM School continues as a virtual event for April 2021. As always, the training will include live, interactive microscope, and computer analysis sessions.

What you need to know:

  • Four day program.
  • Easy-to-use virtual platform with complete, interactive training program.
  • Full access, 24 hours per day, for all worldwide time zones. 
  • Self-paced learning.
  • Faculty of Gatan EELS engineers, product managers, and software experts.

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

Space is very limited. Once we receive and confirm your registration, you will receive a secure link to pay online with a credit card. Payment is required 15 days before the start of the school to secure your seat.  If you have any questions regarding Gatan training schools, please email us at
