FELMI EELS & EFTEM Course 2016

The joint FELMI/Gatan GIF School is an intense 4-day hands-on laboratory workshop that will take you step-by-step through the acquisition and analysis of energy-filtered TEM (EFTEM) and STEM spectrum imaging (SI) data. The workshop will utilize the state of the art facilities at FELMI-ZFE including a monochromated probe-corrected Titan (S)TEM with a DualEELS™ GIF Quantum system.

Our qualified staff will familiarize you with the latest EELS and EFTEM equipment and will teach you fundamental principles and methods which are crucial to take top quality EELS spectra, STEM SI and energy-filtered images or elemental maps. While not a focus of the workshop, optimization of the source monochromator for high resolution EELS and the Cs probe corrector for STEM SI is included in the program.

You will learn to apply practical techniques, how to use hardware and software systems as well as advanced EELS and EFTEM applications in a very efficient manner. The techniques are applicable to fields ranging from biological to materials research. Prior experience with transmission electron microscopy is beneficial, in the conventional and in the scanning (STEM) mode; a basic familiarity with EELS and EFTEM is an advantage.

We offer highly informative lectures, detailed discussions with experts in the field, and hands-on experience with various techniques. By the end of the course you will have the know-how to optimize the performance of your GIF as well as your EELS and EFTEM experimental setups in order to capture and extract the maximum amount of information from your TEM samples.

At FELMI-ZFE we have relied on our expertise with EELS and EFTEM for more than 20 years, and we look forward to helping you improve your skills!
