MSE-609 / 1 credit

Teacher(s): Maeder Xavier, Michler Johann

Language: English

Remark: Next time: November 29-December 11, 2023


Every 2 years


Modern Scanning Electron Microscopes, when combined with Focused Ion Beams (Dual beam FIB-SEM), provide a larger number of multimodal imaging and analysis/characterisation modes at the nano- and micron-scales. The aim of the course is to present the extended analytical possibilities of such device.



This course is open to participants with a basic background in materials science, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, micro-technology or physics, from both industry and academia.


Scanning Electron Microscopy, Focuss Ion Beam, Transmission Electron Microscopy, microanalysis, multimodal imaging, analytical methods, chemical analysis
