Long Night of Science

24. October 2015

Inauguration For already the 7th time the 'Long Night of Science' invites us on a spectacular journey through the world of science.
On Saturday the 24th of October a large number of exhibits throughout Erlangen, Nuremberg and Fürth are open to visitors from 18:00 to 1:00 o'Clock.
CENEM is proud to participate in this event with an exhibition at the electron microscopy facilities. Visitors will not only be able to see one of the most advanced electron microscopes in the world but also learn about how it helps us to understand a self-cooling beer keg. After the presentation you will have the chance to get a fresh cold beer from such a high-tech keg, which is kindly provided by Tucher.

5th Erlangen TEM School

23. – 26. March 2015

TEM school

This year young researchers interested in transmission electron microscopy (TEM) are again invited to participate in the Erlangen TEM school from 23rd - 26th March 2015, organized by Prof. Erdmann Spiecker and his team at the Center for Nanoanalyis and Electron Microscopy (CENEM) of the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg. The school offers an excellent opportunity to become familiar with the theory and application of different electron microscopy techniques: electron microscopy sample preparation (conventional and FIB), electron diffraction, conventional TEM, high-resolution and analytical TEM. CENEM is equipped with CM30, CM300 and double-corrected Titan Themis³ TEMs as well as Dual-Beam FIB Helios NanoLab660. We intend to initiate discussions regarding the possibility of applying these techniques in the research projects of the participants. The participants are therefore requested to complement their application with an abstract of about 150 words highlighting their research interests in the context of electron microscopy. Daily program of the TEM School typically comprises a lecture on the theory and application of TEM methods followed by practical sessions in the sample preparation and TEM laboratories of the CENEM. Therefore the number of participants is limited to 15 researchers.

CENEM Workshop: Neutrons for Functional Materials

18. – 19. June 2013

Workshop

Neutrons are a perfect probe for the study of structure and dynamics of condensed matter. The extremely wide range of its applications is due to its unique properties (e.g. zero charge, magnetic moment, isotope dependent scattering). Thus with neutrons the microscopic structure of matter can be determined in space and time non-destructively with atomic resolution. The aim of the two-day workshop on 18th and 19th of June in Erlangen was to bring together experts for neutron research of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) and researchers of the Cluster of Excellence “Engineering of Advanced Materials” (EAM) as well as researchers of CENEM for extensive exchange and discussion.
