Fundamental Crystallography with applications to Electron Crystallography

when 27 June 2016 - 2 July 2016
language English
duration 1 week
credits 3 ECTS
fee EUR 100

The school intends to give the participants a basic knowledge in crystallography, as well as how to use it in the context of a transmission electron microscope (TEM). The intended audience are those working with a TEM or collaborating with TEM groups wishing to have a better understanding of their results. Too often TEM-operators lack the background knowledge in crystallography that is necessary to get the most out of their results or to avoid making mistakes against basic crystallography. The skills to take beautiful images and high resolution composition maps cannot be fully exploited if the basic knowledge of electron diffraction and the relations between direct and reciprocal space are not understood. The International School on Fundamental Crystallography with applications to Electron Crystallography seeks to remedy these knowledge gaps.
