Summer School 2020
SuperSTEM in collaboration with the STFC computational physics group and CCP9
invite you to the 8th biennial SuperSTEM Summer School
Advanced Topics in Cs-corrected STEM and Spectroscopy: Theory meets Experiment
10 July - 15 July 2020
at SciTech Daresbury Campus, UK
Building on the established series of schools and workshops held at SuperSTEM every two years, this years school is going beyond the typical syllabus of introductory courses.
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 rationalise and simulate experimental findings.
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.
- 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
The school program includes a scientific poster session. Participants are encouraged to bring a poster and present some of their work.
The summer school will take place at the SuperSTEM Laboratory on the SciTech Daresbury Campus in Daresbury.
The SciTech Daresbury Campus is situated between Manchester and Liverpool, about a half-hour drive from either airport, in the middle of beautiful Cheshire countryside, flanked by woodland and with the Bridgewater Canal running alongside.
