Ly-EtTEM (eTEM TITAN 80-300 kV, FEI)CLYM Instruments

Séminar announcement - 10 July 2015

Gianluigi Botton, Director of the Canadian Center for Electron Microscopy (CCEM) at McMaster University Canada has given a seminar on EELS spectroscopy and advanced TEM and STEM: From Catalysis and Plasmonics: Probing the Structure of Nanoscale Materials with the TEM and EELS (see enclosed PDF announcement).

Date : Friday 10 July, 10:00 am, P.G. De Gennes amphitheater, first floor, Blaise Pascal Building, INSA de Lyon.

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

Opening of the Ly-EtTEM microscope

The opening of the Ly-EtTEM: Lyon Environmental and tomographic Transmission Electron Microscope (first Cs-corrected environmental instrument installed in France) was held on 25 and 26 november, 2013. the official opening ceremony took place at the CNRS campus in Villeurbanne with the participation of representants of all institutions having financially supported the "CPER" project. On Tuesday 26, an International Workshop on environmental TEM (IWETEM) was organised with scientific contributions form international specialists.
