Sample preparation for 3D-SEM techniques in life sciences
12 Apr 2021 - 16 Apr 2021 • MPI of Experimental Medicine, Göttingen, Germany
3D scanning electron microscopy has become an important tool to answer scientific questions in life science. The aim of the course is to provide hands-on experience concerning sample preparation for the main serial imaging techniques in scanning electron microscopy (SEM): microtome-based serial block-face SEM, focused ion beam SEM and array tomography. Chemical fixation (bench processing and microwave-assisted processing) as well as high-pressure freezing and freeze substitution for scanning electron microscopy will be performed. The combination of theoretical and practical sessions will give the participants the possibility to assess the potentials of each sample preparation technique and decide which are most suitable for their own scientific project and research question. The course will also cover data processing and analysis, as these tools are essential to all 3D electron microscopy techniques.

AOFKA21 — Conference on Surface and Solid State Analytics
18 Jul 2021 - 21 Jul 2021 • Chemnitz, Germany
Technical University of Chemnitz
We want to bring your attention towards the upcoming AOFKA21 conference on surface and solid state analystics, this time jointly organized by the FKA and AOFA. Many of you have attended the FKA20 and AOFA conferences and we would be happy to welcome you to the upcoming conference. We expect around 200 international scientists working in the field of surface and solid state analytics. The conference offers Hands-on Experiments in Raman spectroscopy on Sunday afternoon for young researchers and will have a Special Focus on "Advances in electron microscopy". The broadband research activities in this filed will be demonstrated by invited and contributed lectures as well as poster presentations. .
