Charte d'utilisation des instruments du CLYM au plan sanitaire

Dans l'intérêt collectif du bon fonctionnement de la Fédération, tout utilisateur des instruments du CLYM s'engage à ne pas manipuler de produits pathogènes, explosifs, radioactifs ou toxiques dans les salles des microscopes ; toute préparation d'échantillon (dilution, dépôt, concassage, découpe, collage,...) doit être faite en dehors de ces salles (pour le site INSA, la salle de préparation du sous-sol du bâtiment Blaise Pascal est accessible à cet effet).

Focused Ion Beam Microscopy (FIB / SEM): an analytical tool

CLYM proposes a training course based on the "FIB" tool in Materials Sciences.
This course runs over 5 days for a maximum of 6 students(in order to allow a direct and practical contact with the instrument) aims at the following objectives:
- Acquire the theoretical basis regarding cross-beam FIB/SEM microscopy
- practice of 3D approaches in FIB/SEM (image acquisition and treatment of data, EBSD)
- Tackle the TEM prep
