Information

Modules

The workshop provides a complete hands-on training concerning transmission electron microscopy. During the first week, the basic principles are covered concerning topics such as electron diffraction, high resolution transmission electron microscopy as well as analytical transmission electron microscopy. During the second week, students are offered the choice between one of the following modules:

  • Advanced high resolution transmission electron microscopy
  • Analytical techniques in the transmission electron microscope

During the workshop, the students will be provided with the unique opportunity to work with the most advanced transmission electron microscopes currently available. All practical sessions will be guided by experienced members of the EMAT group.

Practical sessions will cover:

Week 1:

Sample preparation by ion milling, focused ion beam, real space image formation in the transmission electron microscope, electron diffraction, electron precession, introduction to high resolution transmission electron microscopy, introduction to analytical transmission electron microscopy.

Week 2:

  • Module “Advanced high resolution transmission electron microscopy”: high resolution transmission electron microscopy, aberration corrected transmission electron microscopy, high annular dark field transmission electron microscopy, exit wave reconstruction, image quantification, …
  • Module “Analytical techniques in the transmission electron microscope”: electron energy loss spectroscopy, energy filtered transmission electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, high angle annular dark field scanning transmission electron microscopy, aberration correction for analytical techniques, …
