Training & Courses

Short courses

FACTS is launching a series of short courses with the intention to give all users some introduction to the various electron microscopy and X-Ray diffraction (EMXRD) techniques offered in FACTS.

These courses aim to provide both current and potential users a platform to explore the capabilities available in FACTS. They should provide some fundamental understanding of common EMXRD techniques. The attendees can also learn how these techniques can be used in their research, in particular for chemical, structural and morphological analysis of materials.

These courses are recommended as a bridging course for new post-graduate students or staff who are new to materials characterization; or anyone who needs refresher course in EMXRD techniques.

Upcoming Events 

Short courses for 2019 (more details to follow):

  • Introduction and advanced topics on Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
  • Advanced topics on X-ray diffraction techniques and analysis
  • Introduction to Small Angle X-ray Scattering
