PEMC Imaging Matters Event Series - Introduction
  • Online delivery

Save event

Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre (PEMC) is hosting a series of free, research-focused seminars.

These monthly Imaging Matters events will show how different forms of microscopy can be used across a broad range of research. Each month an invited speaker will come and give a talk specific to their area of research and how they’ve utilised microscopy to achieve their goal. This will including optical microscopy, electron microscopy, x-ray microscopy, atomic force microscopy, ion beam microscopy and in some cases utilising multiple techniques.

We warmly invite researchers, academics, and students to join us for one or more of these events, not only to learn more about their field but also to broaden their knowledge about other fields and how the same techniques can be used in across multiple research areas. These talks will not only be informative, but will be cutting edge, with speakers showcasing their recent advances. Each presentation will be followed by questions, where the audience can get involved.

Our Imaging Matters event on Wednesday 13 October 2021 will introduce the seminar series, along with PEMC and the team. Following on from this a new speaker will present each month, showcasing their research with microscopy.
