TEM-UCA Summer Workshop “Transmission Electron Microscopy of Catalytic Materials and

Nanoparticles” is one of the Networking activities programmed within the framework of the

“Distributed European Infrastructure of Advanced Electron Microscopy for Nanoscience”,

EESSTTEEEEMM project for 2010 (from 12 th to 16 th July).

Workshop Objectives

This TEM-UCA 2010 Summer Workshop will be devoted to review the advancements of

Transmission Electron Microscopy, both imaging and spectroscopic techniques, in the

characterization of catalytic materials and nanoparticles. During the morning, the speakers (8

lectures, see program) will illustrate how TEM techniques as High Resolution Transmission

Electron Microscopy, High Angle Annular Dark Field imaging, Electron Tomography, Electron

Energy Loss Spectroscopy and In-situ Aberration Corrected Electron Microscopy studies can be

combined to obtain structural and chemical information of the analysed materials at the atomic

scale. Moreover it will be shown how TEM information can be combined with catalytic activity

measurements to correlate the structure and chemistry of the catalytic systems with their

catalytic performance. Different examples will illustrate the practical aspects of nanoparticle

and catalytic materials characterization.

During the afternoon, the participants will be divided in 2 groups to participate at computer

labs in which they will get trained in the practical use of different software applications in the

field of TEM. The topics covered in these computers labs will be the following:

• High Resolution Electron Microscopy (HREM): Image Processing.

• Modelling of nanoparticles and HREM simulation.

• Electron Tomography

• Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS).

During the workshop, the participants will also have the opportunity to present their own work

and place open questions and problems to be solved with electron microscopy techniques to

experts in the different fields.

The Workshop is limited to a maximum number of 30 attendees. If you are currently working

or interested in the field of Catalytic Materials and Nanoparticles and their characterization by

TEM, send your preregistration as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you in Cádiz,

the most ancient city in Occident.
