EELS & EFTEM Analysis Virtual Training School - October 2020

School fee: $250.00 USD

The premier EELS and EFTEM School is now virtual! As always, the training will include live, interactive microscope, and computer analysis sessions. The schedule for the 5-day school will include:

  • Easy-to-use virtual platform with complete, interactive training program.
  • On-demand, pre-recorded lectures on key EELS and EFTEM topics.
  • Live microscope laboratories: Remote microscope sessions demonstrating next-generation EELS imaging and spectroscopy systems and software. These sessions will be recorded.
  • Live Gatan Microscopy Suite® (GMS) software analysis laboratories: Live presentations, data analyses, and discussions using the latest version of GMS. These sessions will be recorded.
  • Q&A break sessions: Live, daily video chat sessions with instructors and participants after laboratories.
  • Community of 50-100 participants/EELS users with 24/7 chat channel for private and public discussions.
  • Private Q&A chat and 1-on-1 video conferencing channels with instructors during school hours (8:00-18:00).
  • Complete training module: Lectures, laboratories, GMS demonstration software, sample data, product literature, and EELS Atlas app provided as downloads.
  • Full access to the school virtual platform and materials during and 14 days after the school.


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
