TFS (S)TEM Workshop, May 24

Join us and Thermo Fisher Scientific on May 24 for a one-day workshop to learn more about the Microscopy Center at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. We will focus on gaining insights into cutting-edge materials with the use of electron microscopy, feature interactive presentations, and engage with academic scholars and industry professionals.

The Microscopy Center houses a variety of scanning probe and electron microscopes, including an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) and a Nano-Indenter, two Transmission electron microscopes, a scanning electron microscope, and two Dual Beam Focused Ion Bean (FIB) instruments. One showcase instrument will be their new Thermo Fisher Spectra 300 aberration corrected TEM/STEM with spatial resolution down to 40 pm, allowing atomic resolution EDS and EELS.

Enabling research from Quantum Materials to Structural Materials, from solid state materials to polymers and bio inspired materials – users of the Microscopy Center serve more than 11 departments from five colleges with their characterized needs at different length scales.
