Title:NIBSC cryo-workshop 2014
Sponsor:National Institute for Biological Standards and Control
Location:National Institute for Biological Standards and Co , South Mimms, Potters Bar UNITED KINGDOM

  • SEM TEM cryo-preparation
  • NIBSC with JEOL (UK) Ltd. and LEICA are holding a dedicated cryo-workshop based on technologies installed at the NIBSC Imaging laboratory, Potters Bar, London, UK. The course will be held over 5 days commencing Monday 27th October through to Friday 31st October 2014. Delegate numbers will be strictly limited to ensure maximum hands-on training. The course will embrace cryo-preparation techniques using Cryo-FEGSEM, Cryo-TEM with GIF quantum and many associated preparation techniques: High pressure freezing (HMP010), Freeze fracture (Leica/BAF060), Cryo-sectioning, Freeze substitution, Vitreous thin films (plunge freezing), Tomography and High resolution Cryo-FEG SEM. This year new automated acquisition solutions will also be taught. Applications are invited, please include a brief description of your current interests to Gill Cathro Email:; Tel: +44 (0) 1707 641561; Fax: +44 (0) 1707 641578

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.
