CAM-IES Early Career Workshop Series: Novel Super-Resolution and Nanoscale Imaging Techniques in Energy Materials, 20 September 2018


20 September 2018

Maxwell Centre, Cambridge, JJ Thomson Avenue, CB3 0EH


CAM-IES is pleased to announce that the first CAM-IES Early Career Workshop will be on the topic of Novel Super-Resolution and Nanoscale Imaging Techniques for Energy Materials, and will be held on 20 September 2018


Scope of the Workshop:

The study of energy materials requires understanding of both the structure and electronic function of materials down to the nanoscale. Increasingly this requires complementing traditional electron and X-ray based probes with novel methods. This workshop will bring together the UK community working on energy materials to learn about exciting new techniques to probe the structure and electronic properties of materials directly at the nanoscale. Cutting across traditional academic boundaries, our world-leading speakers will highlight a range of new methods from interferometric light scattering, high-resolution scanning tunneling microscopy, atom probe tomography and optical super-resolution microscopy, and explore how these can be applied to energy materials.  Join us to learn how these novel methods could help you to bring new insights to your energy materials research.

Working on energy materials? Have a problem that you don’t have a technique to solve? Or do you have a novel technique that might be useful to the community? Come and present your problem, technique, or research interests, to set up exciting opportunities to collaborate. Send in your poster abstracts by 24th August 2018 (to Dr Akshay Rao, subject line: CAM-IES Workshop Poster). Selected early career poster presenters will receive a full travel bursary to cover their travel expenses to Cambridge.


CAM-IES Early Career Workshop Series:

The CAM-IES Early Career Workshop Series aims to bring together junior lecturers, advanced fellows and senior postdoctoral researchers to explore synergistic topics within the field of energy materials.

This workshop is the first in a series of workshops developed and presented by early career academic investigators and postdoctoral researchers working under CAM-IES topics. Students, postdocs and junior lecturers are strongly encouraged to attend.
