NC State's Analytical Instrumentation Facility will offer another Focused Ion Beam (FIB) short course on September 29th. The short course includes lectures covering an introduction to the FIB technique, an overview of the principles and operation of the FIB as well as applications such as FIB prepared SEM and TEM cross section. Also, there will be hands on demos of these applications on the AIF Quanta Dual Beam FIB-SEM. To ensure each student receives a maximum of time on the…Find out more »
NC State’s Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF) is giving a hands-on short course on transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and related techniques, which are very powerful to understanding the morphology, structure, defects, crystal orientation, and phase information of materials, as well as the chemical distribution down to atomic resolution. It is meant for new users of the TEM with interdisciplinary background and/or those interested in learning advanced characterization techniques. The course will include a theory component in the morning (9:00 am to…Find out more »
NC State’s Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF) offers a hands-on short course on Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) on a routine basis. In addition to two lectures on SEM theory, each student will get hands-on time running the AIF variable pressure SEM (VPSEM). The goal of the course is to provide students a basic knowledge of both the theory and practice of SEM imaging, the data that can be derived thereof, and to understand what the generated data means. This should allow…Find out more »
The Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF) is pleased to continue as host of the Carolina Science Symposium (formerly the Materials Research Society (MRS), ASM International, and American Vacuum Society (AVS) joint symposium. The meeting is expected to draw about 100 participants, both locally and from the surrounding region. Topics in materials science, processing, characterization, and biomaterials will be presented by both invited and selected student contributors. A student poster session will be held, and 3 student contributed papers will be selected for…Find out more »
