Chalmers Microscopy School
was founded in 1998. The school is a
course programme given by the Division of Materials Microstructure at the
Department of Physics at Chalmers University of Technology. The courses combine theory with laboratory
work, and are given in close collaboration between scientists and manufacturers
of electron microscopes and equipment for microanalysis and specimen
preparation. Both university scientists
and application specialists from the manufacturers are engaged as lecturers and
instructors at the laboratory sessions.
More than 800 engineers, technicians and scientists, coming from nine countries, have taken our courses.
The aim of Chalmers
Microscopy School is to bring together electron microscopists from industry and
university, and to provide a meeting place where new developments are discussed
with colleagues and application specialists. The course participants are encouraged to
bring their own specimens to the Open Lab evening sessions.
