CAM is running the Introduction to Quantitative Microprobe Analysis workshop with Jeff Chen on Tuesday, 29th June.

To get the most out of this workshop, participants will need to have have a basic understanding SEM and EDS, or have already attended the Introduction to Scanning Electron Microscopy (Physical Sciences) workshop.

This workshop will provide background information and practical advice for the basic operation of an electron probe X-ray microanalyser.

By the end of this course, participants are expected to be able to:

  • understand how an electron microprobe works
  • prepare samples for quantitative microprobe analysis
  • perform standard calibration, sample analysis and results acquisition.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this workshop is currently being offered as a half-day theory course. This workshop will be held from 9.00 am to 1.00 pm on 10 march 2021. Registration fees for ANU participants is $90.00 per person.

Places are limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please visit the link above for more information and contact CAM to secure your place if you would like to attend this workshop.
