Supporting Materials Research to Manufacture the Future.
Materials Microscopy Workshop Series
In late May, a series of materials science microscopy workshops were co-organized by Carl Zeiss Microscopy in collaboration with Monash University, the University of South Australia, and the University of Sydney. The focus of the workshop series was on bringing together materials scientists from academia and local industry to learn, exchange ideas, and provide updates related to microscopy applications and new technology developments. Discussions covered a broad variety of techniques spanning light, electron, ion, and X-ray microscopy. In addition, the ability to connect different microscopy tools by means of correlative workflows in both 2D and 3D was illustrated using examples from the fields of metals research, batteries, and nanotechnology / nanofabrication.
Impressions from the Workshops
Dr Gianluca Tozzi, director of ZEISS Global Centre, University of Portsmouth (UK) presented on Digital Volume Correlation. Associate Professor Max Zanin presented a talk on Discrete X-ray Tomographic Reconstruction for Fast Mineral Liberation Retrieval. Prof Ben Eggleton discussed "Integrating Photonics at the Nanoscale" stepping us through the fascinating world of "lab on a chip". Prof Andrew Minett shared some of the microscopy related challenges in developing new, sustainable energy solutions. Each event drew attendance of over 30 researchers. We'd like to thank our guest speakers for truly captivating talks. In addition, we thank Prof. Asadul Haque (Monash University), Mr Simon Doe (University of South Australia) and Prof. Stefano Palomba (University of Sydney) for hosting and moderating the seminars.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Materials Science seminar on Microscopy in Additive Manufacturing, Li-Ion Batteries and Nanofabrication, and to the teams at Monash University, the University of South Australia and the University of Sydney for supporting these events.
