Quantitative Phase Imaging and cell migration
08 February 2023
Quantitative Phase Imaging (QPI) is a novel label-free microscopy technique bringing an utterly new contrast into the live-cell imaging field. It allows for extracting quantitative data from unlabeled cells and monitoring them non-invasively. Another benefit of QPI technology is the ability to precisely segment cells due to the incoherent light source used in Q-Phase. The seminar will explain the principle of technology and show the broad range of applications focusing on label-free analysis, such as cell growth, cell death, cell migration, and others. The webinar will be held in English.

21 to 23 June 2022
Trondheim – Norway
A workshop on Electron diffraction for solving engineering problems will be organized at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway, 21.-23. June 2022.
This year’s workshop will focus on how we can use electron diffraction in TEM and SEM –how to deal with ‘real’ materials, the possibilities given by better cameras, and post processing and data analysis on how to get the most out of your results. In these three days’ workshop, invited experts and skilled educators in this field will address the essentials and the latest developments through lecture, computer exercise and hands-on practical sessions using the NORTEM infrastructure in Trondheim.
Lectures will cover different qualitative and quantitative methods in electron diffraction and how it can be used for engineering problems.We start every morning with lectures. In the afternoons, experiment demos on the TEMs and computer practices on data analysis will be given. We will teach how to use various open-source scientific python packages to analyze diffraction data. If (because of Covid) physical presence will be difficult, the workshop will be transferred to digital, with lectures and computer exercises.
We invite PhD students, postdocs and researchers working with TEM and SEM in the physical sciences to participate!

Course: Cryosectioning and Immuno-electron microscopy
13 to 16 June 2022
Utrecht – Netherlands
The 4 day workshop on Cryo-sectioning and Immuno- Electron Microscopy (EM) is meant for people willing to learn cryo-sectioning and Tokuyasu Technique for immune-EM. Experience in resin sectioning is not necessary, but is definitely an advantage. This workshop is hands-on in nature, although some topics will be also covered with lectures. The entire EM procedure from (live) specimen to imaging immuno-labeled ultrathin sections will be covered from start to finish. You will have the chance to use most of the workshop time in the lab working with standard specimens like cultured cells or tissues. Besides managing the ultra-cryo-microtome, the preparation of EM tools and other necessities will be covered.
We provide an excellent learning environment. When manual skills like ultrathin sectioning of resin blocks are being trained the participants will have their own ultra-cryo-microtome (often equipped with a camera) to practice on. The number of participants is limited to 12 people. We will provide you with a practical manual and detailed protocols covering the topics of the workshop.
EBEAM2022: school on nanooptics with free electrons 2022
11 June 2022
Porquerolles – France
Electron optics and spectroscopy instrumentation developments in the last 20 years have considerably widened the range of applicability of electron beam techniques to nano-optics: meV beam energy spread, single atoms imaging capabilities, electron wavefunction shaping, fs pump probe experiments, and efficient light coupling to and from samples are a reality. This has enabled the study of a variety of excitations (plasmons, phonons, excitons...) at extreme spatial, temporal and spectral resolutions. Therefore, new theories have blossomed to explain exciting results coming from electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS), cathodoluminescence (CL) and photon induced near-filed electron microscopy (PINEM), and central concepts of nanooptics or quantum optics have been shown to be applicable to electron-based spectroscopies.
For this reason, it is high time for a school aiming at spreading knowledge about these new concepts and techniques and at fomenting the interest of a new generation of academics in this blooming field. That is the object of the eBEAM school focused on electron spectroscopies for nano-optics.
Courses will cover: the basics of electron instrumentation and spectroscopies; electron-matter-light interaction; electron spectroscopies of optical material; time, space, and quantum coherence in electron spectroscopy; advanced EELS and CL; photoemission etc.
