Energy dispersive

High Resolution Elemental Analysis from 2kV to 200kV Workshop

This workshop will discuss, through seminars and practical sessions, the technological advances that make nanometer and sub-nanometer elemental characterization possible at wide range of energies in the TEM and SEM.

Afternoon practical sessions featuring hands on demonstrations will use the Imaging Cores - Kuiper (Materials Imaging and Characterization Facility):

“Lab in the gap” - the UA’s new Electron Microscope is ready for solving big scientific problems

An electron microscope uses electrons to probe an object, measuring the physical, chemical and microstructural information down to atomic-level resolution. Recently, there are transformative advancements in electron microscopy: 1) stable, easy-to-use automated aberration correction enables 80pm-resolution instrument for solving real-world problems; and 2) a surge of new development of in situ and environmental techniques.

Jerry Chang

Yao-Jen Chang has a MS degree from Murray State University and PhD degree from University of Kentucky. He is specialized in exploring the structure-property relationships for nanomaterials using electron microscopy techniques, including energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS), selected area electron diffraction (SAED), and in situ liquid cell/heating experiments.

Jacob Favela

Jacob Favela is a PhD candidate in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Arizona.  His doctoral research is focused on technology development of metallic nanostructured hole arrays and their implementation as cathode electrodes in thin-film organic solar cells using electroactive polymer materials. These “honeycomb” nanostructures exhibit tunable surface plasmon resonance modes based on the pattern geometry and long-range order, and have been used as electrochemical templates to fabricate high surface-area electrodes for Lithium-ion battery technology.
