The event will take place online due to the Covid-19 situation.

The event includes three Satellite Workshops

  • Satellite Workshop on Neutron Diffraction

The workshop on neutron diffraction gives a hands-on introduction into advantages of neutron diffraction in crystallography, the current instrumentation available for user access at the Heinz-Maier-Leibnitz Neutron Source in Garching near Munich, important software applications for data evaluation, and coaching on writing of successful beam-time proposals. The course covers instruments specialized on biological structure determination, materials science, powder diffraction, and small molecule / inorganic structure determination.

  • Satellite Workshop on Micro-Raman-Spectroscopy and Keyence Microscopy

The workshop is a hands-on introduction and practice course on the micro-Raman spectroscopy technique and modern digital quantitative optical microscopy with 3-dimensional object reconstruction. The workshop will consist of a short theoretical introduction to Raman spectroscopy (ca. 2 hours) and a practical part (ca. 3 hours) with the Horiba Jobin Yvon (XPloRa) Micro-Raman spectroscope in our house by PD Dr. Melanie Kaliwoda. Sample processing and data evaluation techniques will be shown. You may bring your own samples! (Bulk, thin sections or thick sections). In addition to the work on the Raman spectroscope, there will also be an introduction on quantitative Keyence digital microscopy by Dr. Malte Junge. Here you will learn how to measure and reconstruct 3D sample morphology or prepare samples for later measurement on other instruments, such as the SEM or micro-Raman spectroscope.

  • Satellite Workshop on Analytical Scanning Electron Microscopy

Microstructure and texture information is of major importance in research on geological and biological material, as well as in material design and material processing technologies. Microstructure characterization of crystalline materials includes the determination of crystallographic, structural and chemical characteristics. Best suited for quantitative microstructure and texture characterization is EBSD (Electron Backscatter Diffraction) performed in a scanning electron microscope (SEM), and complemented by secondary electron (SE)-, backscattered electron (BSE)- and cathodoluminescence (CL)- imaging, scanning transmission electron microcopy (STEM) and chemical microanalysis with Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS or EDX).

The hands on workshop will give an overview on microstructure, texture and microchemical characterization of a variety of materials. We will show conventional-, low-kV EBSD and EDS data acquisition as well as EBSD/EDS data evaluation and interpretation. In addition, we will introduce to SE, BSE, CL and STEM imaging and some sample preparation for EBSD and EDS analysis. We will give advice on preparation techniques for your own samples.
The 1.5 day course will be offered 17th/18th of March and 11th/12th of March 2022. Final scheduling for you will be arranged by e-mail later.
