Material Advantage, IITK chapter is organizing a 3 days online training program for Scanning Electron Microscopy from a practical point of view. SEM is a powerful investigation tool. In addition to topographical, morphological and compositional information, SEM can detect and analyze surface fracture, provide information in microstructure, and examine surface contamination. It can also reveal spatial variations in chemical composition, provide qualitative chemical analysis and identify the crystalline structure.
Keeping in mind the current situation, as most of the students are detached from their experimental work, we will face an urgent rush to complete our thesis on returning back to campus. Characterization and analysis will play an important role for most of us. A better understanding of SEM will make us well equipped with this characterisation technique.
This workshop will help in building basic knowledge about SEM and the analysis of images using ImageJ software.
All enthusiastic people are cordially welcome. Hoping for participation in large numbers for our benefit.

Kindly register yourself for this using the link provided below. The mode of conduction of this training will be online (preferably ZOOM) and the event will tentatively occur during 27-29 July 2020.

The last date for registration is 19 July 2020 (23:59 hrs).
