A Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) short course will be offered this summer break (June 2024) through the AIM Lab at the NanoCenter, University of Maryland. This is a hands-on course aimed at introducing the basic concepts, instrumentations and application of TEM to new operators. The lecture portion of the course will focus on fundamental theory in TEM; laboratory exercises are designed to provide instruction on both the operation of TEM and useful techniques for materials characterization using TEM. This course is also recommended as a refresher course to individuals with prior knowledge and operating familiarity with the TEM.
