European Atom Probe Workshop

​Welcome to the 2017 European Atom Probe Tomography Workshop 2-5th of October, Hosted by Chalmers University of Technology

Deadline for registration is Sep 1 (scroll down)

The meeting will be held at the conference center Gullmarsstrand in the small fishing village of Fiskebäckskil, about an hour away from Gothenburg. Our aim is that this scenic venue will bring out the best in us for exiting scientific discussions, and provide a relaxed setting to socialize in with new and old colleagues!

The atom probe tomography technique continues to break new ground, and to meet the recent growing interest in analyzing organic/biological materials, part of the meeting will be devoted to challenges involved in both preparation, analysis and data interpretation of such samples.We encourage speakers and participants to present not only their success stories, but also unfinished work and obstacles they may be facing. All to stimulate discussions and to improve our knowledge and skills.

We look forward to meet you at Gullmarsstrand!

 Key topics/sessions

-    Sample preparation/Correlative microscopy
-    Biological/Organic samples
-    Semiconductors
-    Non/conducting materials
-    Data analysis
-    Reconstruction/modelling
