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.

Since this is a new course the lecture content may be subject to change as we go along but is currently:


2.Scanning electron microscopy

3.Microanalysis with X-rays

4.Scanning probe microscopy (Neil Wilson)

5.Focused ion beam microscopy

6.Scanning transmission electron microscopy

7.Wave optics and electron diffraction

8.Transmission electron microscopy

9.Data analysis and simulations

  1. Demonstrations, examples and other techniques
