CEM4MAT organizes PhD-course in Advanced TEM Spectroscopy and Tomography


The nodes in CEM4MAT have identified a need for advanced PhD-courses in transmission electron microscopy. To fill this gap a 5 hp PhD course is given during April-June 2018.

The aim of the course is threefold: (i) to provide PhD students in the Stockholm-Uppsala region with deeper theoretical and practical knowledge in spectroscopic and tomographic techniques in the transmission electron microscope (TEM), (ii) to build a community of TEM-users in the region, and (iii) to maximize the usability of the newly acquired TEMs in UU and SU. The course is given by expert scientists in different fields of electron microscopy, spectroscopy, electron tomography and diffraction working in UU, SU, and KTH. The lectures are being held in the three nodes, i.e., at the Ångströmlab, Arrheniuslab, and Elektrum. A total of six students working within different topics in materials science enrolled in the course (4 UU, 1 SU, 1 KTH).

The course was designed in a modular fashion so as to be able to expand it into a TEM school. This can be possible through a collaboration with other TEM courses in the country given by other strong centers, such as those in Lund, Linköping, and Gothenburg.
