Atom Probe Tomography Seminar

This technical seminar on Atom Probe Tomography for 3D Atomic-Scale Characterization will be hosted by CAMECA Instruments. Atom Probe Tomography (APT) is the highest special resolution analytical characterization technique with high efficiency single atom detection for quantitative atom scale 3D compositional analysis and elemental mapping of chemical heterogeneities. This talk will cover APT operational theory, an introduction to sample prep and data reconstruction, and an overview of various applications. A commercial cryo-UHV solution for FIB-APT specimen transfer will also be presented which expands the application space for APT to biological materials, hydrogen containing materials, and surfaces prone to rapid oxidation.

Lunch will be provided

Tutorials will be held on Monday, with a banquet Monday Evening. Talks will take place on Tuesday. For more information, to register, and to view an agenda, please visit the event website.

Skylar Tibbits: “A 4D Future: Self-Assembly, Programmable Materials, and 4D Printing”

Our 4D future in imminent. Founder of MIT’s Self-Assembly LabSkylar Tibbits forecasts a world where buildings and machines will have the capacity to self-assemble, replicate and repair — changing how we approach city planning, manufacturing and business. Does this new 4D technology have enormous implications? You bet. Tibbits breaks down the possibilities of a 4D future as part of the “Goodnight Scholars Program Presents” series. Doors open at 6 p.m.
