Short Course on Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS)

Monday 29 June 2015 at 1pm - Manchester Central, Charter 3

Scientific Organiser: Prof Jun Yuan, University of York

The EMAG group of Institute of Physics, with the support of Royal Microscopy Society, is organizing a pre-congress short course on the electron microscopic analytical technique of electron energy loss spectroscopy.  We have a number of internationally leading experts in this growing specialized field to provide tutorials on topics ranging from EELS as a quantitative chemical analysis tool to more advanced usage of EELS to probe the electronic, magnetic and now also vibrational properties of nanostructures, down to atomic scale details.  Both the experimental and ab-initio simulation aspects of the techniques will be covered by the experienced practitioners.  The tutorial will be suitable for both new postgraduate students wanting to explore the related techniques in their research projects, to more experienced researchers who want to catch up with the latest development in the field.  The registration fee for the course has been kept low to encourage wide participation and the workshop should prove to be an interesting appetizer to the main mmc2015 congress that follows immediately after.
