The basic concepts of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and chemical element identification using x-ray spectrometers (EDS: Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer and WDS: Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer) will be discussed, and demonstrations with practical aspects plus practical aspects of data interoperability and good practices will be addressed.
The main lecturer is Prof. Dr Nestor Zaluzec from Argonne National Laboratory, Northern Illinois University and the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr Nicholas Ritchie from NIST will also give a talk.
The tentative program, especially the demonstration sessions, might suffer slight time shifts depending on the interest and discussions.
The official language of the workshop will be English.
The scheduled time zone is Brasilia, which is 3 hours ahead of Chicago and 4 hours behind Central Europe (Brussels, Rome, etc.)
Registration until December 13, 2022
