FIB & EM Preparation User Group Meeting

Following the tremendous success of the first FIB & Prep (FIB & Preparation UK User Group) meeting which took place in October 2013, the FIB & EM Prep Group invites you to attend the 2nd FIB & Prep (Focus Ion Beam and EM Sample preparation) UK User Group Meeting on the 1st July.  

The UK FIB & Prep User Group has been organised to provide an open forum for FIB users and EM sample preparation equipment users to share technique information, discuss best practices, exchange tips for difficult materials and learn about new developments in both instrumentation and techniques, as well meet colleagues. 

This meeting is aimed at researchers, failure analysis engineers, PhD students, and anyone having a need to understand today’s FIB and EM sample preparation technologies. If you are interested in FIB or EM sample preparation techniques, please join us.

Talks will start at 10am and finish at 4pm with 2 hours allocated for lunch and time in the mmc exhibition.  It's the the largest microscopy and imaging exhibition in Europe; you can attend the free workshops, and go to the free RMS Learning Zone.

Register

Registration is free, and you will also be able to visit the exhibition and mmc2014 poster sessions. To register please visit our Online Registration page.
