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.

BioScience AFM – Capturing Dynamics from Single Molecules to Living Cells
Stefan Kaemmer, PhD – JPK Instruments USA
The last three decades have established the atomic force microscope (AFM) as an indispensable tool for high-resolution structural analysis of specimens ranging from single molecules to complex biological systems. AFM currently offers premium spatial resolution of the analyzed samples while simultaneously being able to correlate topography and mechanics at near native/physiological imaging conditions.


Monday, April 17, 2017 - 08:00 to Friday, April 28, 2017 - 12:00 will be presenting two back-to-back seminars on the morning of April 28, 2017. Both seminars will be held in Room 601 of the Gould-Simpson Bldg at the University of Arizona.

9:30 -10:15 am - Advanced cathodoluminescence (CL) techniques for photonics, materials sciences, geology and plasmonics
