5th Summer School on Aberration Corrected STEM

It builds on the established summer schools held at SuperSTEM every two years. This year the summer school will be run as a pre-conference satellite event to emc2012 at the Materials Science Centre in Manchester and is run in association with the Royal Microscopical Society (RMS).

This is an exciting time of development on several fronts in the science, technology and application of electron microscopy. Aberration-correction is one of the most significant of recent advances. Image correctors have enhanced TEM considerably providing more readily interpretable images and greater precision in atom location, particularly in association with exit-wave reconstruction. But the enhancement to imaging and to analysis at the single atomic column or even single atom level resulting from the smaller brighter electron probes provided by aberration-correction has perhaps given STEM the greater impact.
The talks and practicals of this school will cover the topics of aberration-correction optics, STEM imaging modes, analysis, simulation of images EELS spectra and advanced applications of AC-STEM and is presented by experts in the field. It is intended for all PhD students, post-docs, academic and technical staff who use aberration-corrected STEM as a significant part of their research. The first day covers the fundamentals with more advanced lectures and practical sessions on the following day and a half. Delegates will receive comprehensive notes and a copy of the recently published handbook “Aberration-Corrected Analytical Transmission Electron Microscopy” (Wiley 2011) written by members of the SuperSTEM team.
The School is part funded by EPSRC through the EPSRC National Facility for Aberration Corrected STEM.
