2nd Australian Helium Ion Microscopy User Meeting

January 24-25, 2018 at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane

We would like to invite you to the 2nd Australian Helium Ion Microscopy User Meeting, to be held at the QUT Gardens Point campus in Brisbane.
Join us to learn more about the Helium Ion Microscope, its technology and the many imaging and nanofabrication applications. Application experts from ZEISS will share fascinating application ideas and the latest advances in instrumentation and HIM research. The HIM experts in Australia will discuss their research and device experiences and will take you on an exciting journey into the micro cosmos.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Brisbane early 2018!

Venue Information

The HIM User Meeting will be held at the Central Analytical Research Facility (CARF) which hosts a range of characterisation, analysis and ‘omics’ capabilities, underpinned by $30M of cutting edge instrumentation in microscopy, mass spectrometry, sequencing, and other areas. CARF is located in the internationally award-winning Science and Engineering Centre which is home to The Cube, acknowledged as one of the world’s largest digital interactive learning and display spaces.
