Electron Microscopy and Analytical Techniques

3 December 2019 - 5 December 2019

Electron Microscopy and Analytical Techniques is an intensive three-day course into electron microscopy and analytical techniques. The course is aimed at users from industry, the course will compromise of lectures and a significant amount of hands on practical sessions (~50%) with the advanced instrumentation located in the Loughborough Materials Characterisation centre (LMCC).

The course is particularly relevant to people working in materials science or related sectors who need a broad knowledge of the electron microscopy techniques available. The course covers a wide range of EM techniques which includes Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Focused Ion Beam Microscopy (FIB) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) the course also covers a wide range of analytical techniques from Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy to micro X-ray fluorescence (µXRF).

The course also provides you with an opportunity to experience the capability of the centre. There will be an opportunity for you to characterise your own samples and have 1-1 sessions with a member of the LMCC team.

The aim is that the course will help you expand your knowledge in electron microscopy and help you appreciate how quickly advances in technology are developing. This will allow you to choose the appropriate instrument or technique(s) when dealing with a materials related issue in industry.
