  • Frontiers in Electron Microscopy for the Physical and Life Sciences

    Wed, Jul 11, 2018 (All day) to Fri, Jul 13, 2018 (All day)

    In recent years, electron microscopy instrumentation and methods have significantly advanced. This progress has greatly benefited both the physical and life sciences, from cryo-EM, which was recognized with the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, to emerging methods such as low-energy holography and vortex beams. Both communities have developed novel techniques, but open challenges still remain.
