Training & Courses

Equipment user training

As a shared research facility hosting a wide variety of advanced materials characterisation tools we offer equipment user training at different levels. Our goal is to train users to become independent and expert in the characterization techniques. For this reason we offer extensive training modules for potential users to attend and pass in order to use our facility.

You can find the available equipment (SEM, TEM, XRD) under the facilities page. For starters we offer basic training on scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction analysis. For interested users please follow the instructions through this link.

Online Micro and Nano Characterisation Instruction (OMNI)

To aid the learning process in using our facility we provide a virtual instruction on the concepts and use of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis.


Short courses (more)

​We also offer short courses aimed at providing basic knowledge to potential users without materials characterisation background. Advanced topics concerning the theory, in-depth knowledge and application of advanced techniques are also offered as short courses. These courses will help maximise the information and increase the value of data collected using our facility. The courses are conducted by the facility scientists.

Seminars/Lectures (more)

We also hold seminars conducted by world-renowned experts invited to give lectures and seminars.
