Electron microscopy: advanced methods

MSE-450

Lecturer(s) :

Alexander Duncan
Hébert Cécile

Language:

English

Summary

With this course, the student will learn advanced methods in transmission electron microscopy, especially what is the electron optical setup involved in the acquisition, and how to interpret the data. After the course, students will be able to understand and assess TEM encountered in papers.

Content

  1. Electron imaging and diffraction contrasts
  2. Phase contrast
  3. Scanning TEM
  4.  EDS-, EEL-spectroscopy in TEM.


Exercises and demonstrations concerning these themes.

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

- Electron microscopy : introduction
- Basic knowledge of Solid state physics, Cristallography, Cristal defects

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Teaching methods

Seven weeks of the course will be with MOOCS, 7 weeks with conventional format, alternating over the semestre.

The weeks with MOOCS format, there will be time reserved at the microscope(s) to discuss and practice on the TEM the content of the lecture, as well as to answer student's questions.

Expected student activities

Follow the MOOCS *before* attending the TEM session for the 7 weeks on MOOCS format.

Assessment methods

Oral examination
