Module Details

This module is aimed at those who wish to use (mainly electron) microscopes or have an interest in how they work and what kind of data can be obtained. There are many different techniques within the field and the focus will generally be on techniques and good experimental practice rather than theory and calculation.

The lecture content may be subject to change as we go along but is currently:

1. Introduction - magnification and resolution

2. Scanning electron microscopy

3. Microanalysis with X-rays

4. Focused ion beam microscopy

5. Transmission electron microscopy & Electron diffraction I

6. High resolution TEM

7. Electron diffraction II

8. Scanning transmission electron microscopy

9. Electron energy loss spectroscopy & simulation
