CEM4MAT, Centre of Electron Microscopy for Materials Sciences
CEM4MAT is an initiative from the electron microscopy (EM) facilities in the Stockholm-Uppsala region.
This is a regional platform to make the Transmission Electron Microscopy based research infrastructure accessible and transparent for external and internal users. The four nodes of CEM4MAT, specialised in Materials Sciences, are Uppsala University, Stockholm University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Swerea KIMAB.
Facilities and Fees
CEM4MAT are currently preparing to use a common booking system for our microscopes, LIMS. We are aiming to have this all arranged and in place at the website in September 2017. In the meantime please contact the specific node with your booking. Contact us
The different nodes of CEM4MAT offer courses covering a broad range of topics from the basic understanding to specialised courses in selected material topics. The courses are aimed at both academic (Master’s or PhD level) and industrial users.
We are currently planning a course in basic transmission electron microscopy at the PhD level, which will complement the courses at the master’s and bachelor levels. This will be jointly organised between the three universities and with introduction to the opportunities available in industry presented by some of our industrial users. This course will be listed here on the website in September 2017.

The structure of aluminosilicate zeolite ITQ-39 has been solved
In collaboration between the team at EMC and Professor Avelino Corma’s group in the Polytechnic University of Valencia, we have solved six novel zeolite structures; including one of the most complex aluminosilicate zeolite ITQ-39, which is an excellent catalyst for converting gasoline to diesel fuel. Novel zeolite structures
From structure to improved properties with passion
The specific application drives material scientists into the role of finding the fine-line between art and science in being able to interpret the results with adequate knowledge of contemporary chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering. Two examples from the Functional Materials Laboratory at KTH are presented, with passion. Improved properties
Development of a replica method for analysis of carbo-nitrides in steel
Small precipitates and non-metallic inclusions play important role for metallic construction materials. The effects ranges from positive, as for precipitation hardened materials, to negative, as when precipitates acts as nucleation site for ferrite in the heat affected zone in welds. We present a new method developed at SwereaKIMAB. New method
