The Basic EM Course provides general and basic introduction to PhD students and postdocs, who would like to work with EM methods in their projects. The course covers fundamental theory and operational principles as well as specimen preparation techniques for scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM/TEM). We accept participants from all research departments and universities.

Due to space constraints, there is a maximum number of allowed participants. If we receive more applications, participants will be selected based on several criteria. Selection criteria include level of EM experience, current research project and motivation to attend the course as well as geographical balance.
