ZEISS to sponsor Virtual Conference Frontiers of Microscopy

Jena, 23 April 2013

Frontiers of Microscopy is a free online-only event from 24th - 26th April 2013, hosted by Materials Today, the Open Access magazine for materials science and technology. The conference will cover all aspects of microscopy, and introduce some of the many fascinating developments that are taking place around the globe. Experts from across the field will present their research, from electron and charged ion microscopy, to scanning probe techniques, to ultraviolet, infrared and x-ray methods.

The conference will address researchers from academia or industry interested in the micro and nanoscale properties of materials, or in the latest developments in microscopic analysis.

We are particularly looking forward to the presentation about Helium Ion Microscopy (HIM) as a Novel Characterization Tool for Materials Scientists by Alan Bell from Trinity College Dublin, on 24th April at 4pm British Standard Time (Check the time in your country here). Bell is working with ORION – the ZEISS helium ion microscope. He will give an overview of HIM and its imaging capabilities and present the results of high throughput resist based lithography, as well as results from studies into various biological systems, and the fabrication of gold nanogap electrodes using helium ions to sputter gold. There will be a live Q&A session at the end for the audience to address questions and comments.
