JEOL UK SEM Workshop

JEOL UK will run a series of one-day workshops.The workshops are intended to provide the new generation of SEM users (including PhD students and postdocs, technical and experimental officers, and EM facility managers) with the introduction to SEM and related analytical techniques, such as energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. 

Lectures and practical sessions will take place in the JEOL UK headquarter, which is located in Welwyn Garden City, and which houses state-of-the-art thermionic and field emission instruments. Topics will range from sample preparation and carrying out basic imaging to elemental analysis and troubleshooting common SEM problems.

The first dates have been set for:

Tuesday 16th April 

Wednesday 17th April

*  This is a one-day course. The content will be repeated on the second day.

** Can’t make it? Keep checking our website – we will have additional dates confirmed soon for summer & fall 2019.
