13th Annual FIB SEM Meeting

The 2020 FIB SEM Meeting will be returning to the Kossiakoff Center at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. We will have two full days of presentations, tutorials, and posters by FIB users and vendors, highlighting interesting new FIB applications and the latest technology. And, as always, there will be plenty of opportunities for informal discussion of new techniques and applications as well as getting (re)connected with your fellow FIBers.

Abstract submissions are required for all presenters (user & vendor contributions).  All FIB related topics such as new and novel application areas for FIB, advances in FIB, FIB sources (LMIS, Plasma IS, GFIS, LMAIS, LoTIS), FIB related instrumentation and techniques, image and data processing techniques for FIB data, and correlative studies involving FIB (LM, mCT/XCT, etc.) are welcome.

Date: April 23 – 24, 2020
Location: Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, MD

2020 CCEM Summer School

This school will focus on advanced training with instructors and expert users of aberration-corrected microscopes, electron optics (correctors and microscopes) and spectrometers. The school will cover advanced EELS acquisition methods on the Quantum with K2 direct electron detector, Tridiem, monochromator alignments, advanced EELS data processing, advanced STEM image data processing, advanced data processing for electron tomography, quantitative energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, energy-loss near-edge structures and atomic resolved EELS theory. Practical sessions will also cover processing of images and spectra using independent component analysis, HyperSpy and various tomography reconstruction softwares.

Date: June 8 – 12, 2020
Location: McMaster University

Applications are now closed.
