Advanced Topics in Aberration-Corrected STEM: Theory meets Experiment, 10-15 July, 2020, Daresbury, U.K.

The 8th SuperSTEM Summer School on “Advanced Topics in Aberration-Corrected STEM: Theory meets Experiment”, will be held at the SuperSTEM Laboratory, in Daresbury, U.K., between the 10th - 15th of July 2020.

The 2020 Summer School builds on the established series of schools and workshops held at SuperSTEM every two years. Following recent advances in instrumentation, this year’s school will address advanced topics in Cs-corrected STEM and spectroscopy techniques and introduce theoretical methodologies & computational tools necessary to rationalize and simulate experimental findings.

Topics covered:

  • principles of aberration diagnosis & correction
  • advanced imaging theory
  • EELS & EDX spectroscopy
  • quantitative image analysis and simulations
  • Introduction to DFT and band structure calculations.

The lectures will be complemented by practicals in small groups, including hands on operation of the SuperSTEM instruments and introduction to theoretical calculations and EELS simulations using CASTEP.

The lectures are intended for PhD students, post-doctoral researchers as well as academics and professionals that have an existing background in electron microscopy or relevant theoretical background.

Please note that due to a limited number of available places a two-stage registration process will be followed.
