ETCbrunel provides short training courses for postgraduate students, staff members and external delegates. Our courses in Scanning Electron Microscopy are endorsed by the Institute of Physics. See Training Courses below.
ETCbrunel is an active research centre and a number of doctoral (EngD and PhD) and research masters students benefit from the facilities and expertise of the staff. See more information on our research pages.
Practical Scanning Electron Microscopy Course
The Centre’s Scanning Electron Microscopy courses, endorsed by the Institute of Physics for continuing professional development (CPD), give delegates theoretical and practical knowledge of scanning electron microscopy (SEM); through a of lectures, demonstrations and practicals explore the theory, practice and application of these powerful analytical tools.
The focus of the courses include: interaction between electrons and materials, imaging techniques, high resolution SEM, energy dispersive X-ray analysis and electron back-scattering diffraction.
Courses make use of both standard scanning electron microscopes and the ETCbrunel’s state-of-the-art variable-pressure, field-effect SEM.
These courses run over two days and are followed up by a two-hour one to one session, so you can bring your samples along!
Because of its emphasis on practical skills, the number of delegates will be limited to 10 per course so early booking is recommended.
