SEM at the RMS Learning Zone

The RMS Learning Zone will hopefully have a full-size Scanning Electron Microscopes and a bench-top Scanning Electron Microscope available, and we are grateful to the exhibiting companies for the loan of these.   A full list of makes and models will be available nearer the event.  

Are you experiencing difficulties in obtaining good SEM images of your samples? Do you wish to find out whether SEM is the appropriate technique to apply to your specimens? Or do you simply wish to know more about the potential of the SEM?

In this part of the RMS Learning Zone, two talks will be given on how to prepare samples for SEM (including high resolution requirements) and how to get the best out of your SEM.

Direct "hands-on" demonstrations will then follow on the microscopes that will be loaned to the Zone. These will be used for specific demonstrations (eg effects of varying operating conditions) and also provide an opportunity for you to bring your own samples along (though they will need to be ready mounted and, if necessary, coated - there will not be any SEM specimen preparation facilities available in the zone).

Come along, not only to listen, but also to ask questions and make good use of the opportunity to discuss your requirements with experienced microscopists.
