Sessions for Scandem 2018


  • Advances in electron spectroscopy: techniques, instrumentation and applications:

    Chair: Shima Kadkhodazadeh (DTU Danchip/Cen)

    The session covers new developments in electron microscopy-based spectroscopic techniques, instrumentation and their applications in materials science.

  • Materials Science and Energy Materials:

    Chair: Jacob R. Bowen (DTU Energy)

    The session covers all aspects of electron microscopy applied to microstructural investigation of metals, ceramics, polymers and composite structures in 2D & 3D and in particular when these function as Energy Materials. The scope includes analysis of microstructural composition, morphology and crystalline nature by scanning and transmission electron microscopy and focused ion beam techniques. Electron microscopy studies spatially correlated to other modalities such as X-ray and surface investigations as well as multiscale studies are also included in the scope of the session relating materials microstructure to processing and properties.

  • In Situ Nanoscale Microscopy of Processes:

    Chairs: Thomas W. Hansen (DTU Danchip/Cen) and Kristian Mølhave (DTU Nanotech)

    Direct imaging of physical and chemical processes with electron and x-ray microscopes, often correlated with in-situ measurements provide new insights to complex nanoscale reactions and dynamics. Gas phase environmental electron microscopy is now complemented with liquid phase in-situ TEM/SEM, and x-ray microscopy becomes ever more available with higher resolution together with beam line facilities. Together these in-situ imaging and probing methods open for unprecedented studies helping to improve our understanding of important processes at real operating conditions. The session is calling for contributions describing such studies and discussing the best approaches to achieving in-operando conditions.

  • Imaging multicellular systems:

    Chair: Morten Schallburg Nielsen (Institute for Biomedicine, University of Aarhus)

    The understanding of the spatial organization of multicellular organs and organisms is essential to unravel the role and regulation of life events. In this session current light microscopy applications to study multicellular systems will be presented, with focus on sample preparation, image acquisition and image analysis.

  • Live imaging of single cells:

    Chair: Michael Lisby (Copenhagen Biocenter, University of Copenhagen)

    The session will focus on live cell microscopy of dynamic processes in single cells and automated image analysis.

  • Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM)

    Chair: Rodolphe Marie (DTU Nanotech)

    The session covers:

    • CLEM
    • Hardware development: integrated microscopes for CLEM
    • Super resolution Light microscopy and EM on same samples
  • Image and Data analysis:

Chair: Anders Dahl (DTU Compute)
