To register for the course MSE-636 through your doctoral school program.
27.11.2019, 14:00 room: to be announced
Exam format: written. Lecture notes allowed (on Laptop: no internet connection!), no written report required !
1) To understand the basics of a scanning electron microscope and its capabilities.
2) To understand the image contrast formation in scanning electron microscopy (SE, BSE, low-kV, resolution).
3) To understand analytical techniques as X-Ray spectroscopy and Electron backscatter diffraction.
4) To understand image formation in environmental SEM.
5) To understand Ion beam techniques (FIB and He-Ion microscopy).
6) To assess the different possibilities and application domains (Materials sciences, biology, crystalline or amorphous materials…).
This intensive course is intended for researchers who are potential new users of scanning electron microscopes. It will provide them with a basic understanding of the instruments, optics of SEM, the imaging modes, the associated analytical techniques EDS, related theories of image formation.
Demonstrations will be given on the microscopes.
