Advanced Techniques in Electron Microscopy

Transmission electron microscopy offers numerous methods to analyze not only the microstructure of materials down to an atomic level but also to investigate phenomena in solid state physics. During the last decade, a substantial improvement in all fields of TEM could be achieved including structure imaging, diffraction, spectroscopy, imaging of internal fields, but also the observation of dynamic processes. Our goal is to bring together experts from different fields of transmission electron microscopy to discuss such an application of advanced techniques in materials sciences and solid state physics.  The talks will focus on:

in-situ TEM of surface reactions, holography, quantitative TEM, in-situ Lorentz TEM, HREM of nanostructures, defects and interfaces. At the end of the afternoon sessions, a comprehensive discussion of the presented subjects is planned.

Another occasion of this symposium concerns the farewell of our co-worker/colleague Dr. Peter Werner, who was working in the field of TEM here at the Institute for nearly 40 years.
