With increasing analytical power of the microscopes and the availability
of tools for in-situ experiments, the chemistry between a sample and
its surrounding gets more into the focus of investigations.
Microscopists are, however, often not experts in chemistry, and
vice versa, not many chemists are trained in electron microscopy.
There are urgent and important questions in the field of catalysis
on the one hand, and a large variety of complex interactions that
need to be understood by the microscopist on the other.
The aim of the CHEMEM school is to illuminate the chemical aspects
of electron microscopy.
The program addresses PhD students, postdocs and assistant professor
that are active in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, inorganic
chemistry and physics. Participants are expected to have basic knowledge
in electron microscopy.
