Second International Symposium on Advanced Microscopy and Spectroscopy and UCI School for Transmission Electron Microscopy
The Irvine Materials Research Institute (IMRI) at the University of California, Irvine is hosting its second annual International Symposium on Advanced Microscopy and Spectroscopy (ISAMS-2). The symposium will focus on the retrieval of hidden structural, chemical, electronic, orbital and spin information at the sub-atomic scale by leveraging the novel instruments that can capture electron scattering, and energy loss processes at unprecedented time and energy scales. Topical subjects of in-situ microscopy such as gas and liquid cells, electrical and mechanical manipulation, and radiation damage will also be discussed.
In conjunction with ISAMS-2, IMRI will also offer its first UC Irvine School on Transmission Electron Microscopy (UCI-STEM) after the symposium. The primary focus of the school will be on liquid cell TEM, STEM, and spectroscopy. The school will emphasize both theoretical background and practical aspects of instrument operation. Anyone who would like to increase knowledge and skills on liquid cell TEM, STEM, and spectroscopy techniques is encouraged to register for the UC Irvine Microscopy School as well as ISAMS-2.
Gatan is a major sponsor of ISAMS-2 and UCI-STEM and an integral partner of IMRI and its high-level TEM and STEM research. If you plan on attending the symposium and/or school, please contact Matt Chipman to arrange an appointment on-site to discuss your application needs. We hope to see you at UC Irvine.
