    11 to 13 October 2023
    University of Antwerp – Antwerp – Belgium

    The research area of nanophotonics, the study of light at the nanoscale, has experienced a dramatic growth in recent years. To further advance this field, it is essential to develop novel characterization techniques that are able to generate, probe and control light at length scales far below the diffraction limit of light, at a broad energy range, and at femtosecond time scales. Recently, electron-beam spectroscopies have emerged as powerful probes in nanophotonics research, fueled by the advent of improved microscopes and the exploration of brand-new techniques.

  • CMD 30-Fismat

    04 to 08 September 2023
    Milano – Italy

    Electron microscopies (EM) are demonstrating more and more impressive insight into condensed matter physics. This  minicolloquium will share the most advanced applications and perspectives across the electron microscopy community.
    Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) boasts sub-atomic lateral resolution combined with spectroscopic selectivity down to meV range and ultrafast time resolution, into the attosecond range, making it one of the most complete microscopic tools for the investigation of carefully prepared thin samples. The introduction of focused ion beams (FIB) dramatically increased the range of application of TEM. Further advances include gaining control on the angular momentum of primary electrons and acquiring in operando capabilities to address real world phenomena. Scanning electron Microscopy (SEM) is still mostly devoted to imaging applications on bulk systems, featuring tunable depth sensitivity and the ability of rapidly switching from large fields of view down to nanoscale lateral resolution. Analytical spectroscopic tools like X-Ray fluorescence and cathodoluminescence provide elemental
    concentration, chemical and electronic structure bulk properties, where the lateral resolution and energy selectivity are a few orders of magnitude larger than in TEM. The advent of low voltage SEM, low energy EM (LEEM) and controlled environments pave the way to still more pioneering developments towards highly surface sensitive, energy and time selective analytical capabilities. Local insights into the electronic structure of condensed matter were demonstrated [9]. The surface sensitivity of the SEM probe would make a very fruitful match with the already demonstrated capabilities of TEMs for bulk properties, with the further possibility of implementing in operando non-destructive studies. Ab-initio numerical modeling plays an increasingly crucial role to fully exploit EM.
    Abstract for oral and poster contribution can be submitted at within the DEADLINE of April, 15th, 2023. You will have to select the mini-colloquium in the second submission page.

    - Early bird until July 16th: 350 €

  • Getting the most from your Confocal Course, 12 – 13 July 2023

    12 and 13 July 2023
    York – United Kingdom

    This two day annual confocal course utilises many different sample types and fluorescent probes (DNA stains, classic antibody labels and fluorescent proteins) which are chosen to best demonstrate particular problems and techniques. Focus is always on the techniques they enable and the problems they generate, which will be applicable to any sample types. The two days consist of short tutorials followed by hands-on practice.
    Day 1 takes participants through the basic principles of confocal microscopy and then trains them, through hands-on practice, how to configure and image multicolour, multidimensional samples using a confocal microscope.
    Day 2 builds on the experience of Day 1 and enables participants to try FRAP and spectral profiling.

  • Light Microscopy Summer School, 10 – 11 July 2023

  • 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.
