Title:AMAS XIII, the 13th biennial Australian Microbeam Analysis Symposium
Sponsor:Australian Microbeam Analysis Society & University of Tasmania
Location: University of Tasmania , Hobart AUSTRALIA

  • Scanning Probe SEM TEM AEM ELS EDS WDS EMPA SIM X-Ray Microscopy Computational
  • The aim of the Symposium is to provide a forum to discuss and share ideas on advances, trends and challenges in microanalysis and imaging, with an emphasis on practical solutions and applications. We invite you to present your research on technological developments and applications in a wide range of microanalysis techniques, such as: Scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM, TEM), including variable pressure (VP), cathodoluminescence (CL), electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), focussed ion beam (FIB), electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS), cryo, and nanofabrication methods. X-ray microanalysis using energy or wavelength dispersive x-ray spectrometers (EDS, WDS) on instruments with electron beams (SEM, TEM), x-ray beams (uXRF, synchrotron XRF), or proton beams (PIXE). Beam methods employing mass spectrometers, such as secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), and laser ablation inductively coupled mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS), also including laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). Vibrational microspectroscopy, such as micro Fourier transform infra-red (FTIR) spectroscopy and micro-Raman spectroscopy, including tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS) Other spatially resolved analysis and imaging techniques like atom probe tomography (APT), atom force and scanning tunneling microscopy (AFM, STM), or x-ray tomography (uCT) A range of introductory and advanced workshops on the above topics will be run prior to the Symposium on the 9th and 10th February 2015.
