Our Imaging Matters event on Wednesday 12 January 2022 was on Return of the nano lab. Experiences In situ and plasma focused ion beam microscopy, presented by Dr Stuart Robertson from Loughborough University. Stuart talked about dual beam microscopy, along with in-situ testing.
- plasma focused ion beam applications
- application of electron and ion microscopy including EDS and EBSD
- in-situ characterisation of metals and ceramics
- electrical interconnections and the formation of intermetallic compounds
- best practice in microstructural characterisation
- ion implantation and nuclear materials degradation.
