Conference on In-Situ and Correlative Electron Microscopy (CISCEM)

6-7 Nov. 2012, Saarbrücken, Germany

This conference was organized by the INM-Leibniz Institute for New Materials. The aim of the conference was to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scientists from the fields of biology, materials science, chemistry, and physics, to discuss future directions of electron microscopy research. Topics included nanoscale study of biological samples, and functional materials under realistic or near realistic conditions, for example, in gaseous environments, at elevated temperatures, and in liquid. It was discussed how processes can be studied by including the time domain in electron microscopy, or by a combination of different microscopy methods, for example, correlative fluorescence microscopy and electron microscopy, or by using nanoparticle labels. CISCEM was also the scientific opening ceremony of the facility for in-situ electron microscopy based around the newly installed JEOL ARM200 STEM/TEM at the INM. The venue location was the “Aula” of the Saarland University.
The extended abstracts will be published in the journal: Advances in Imaging and Electron Physics.
