Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) from a to z 2019


Why take the course “Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) from A to Z”?

For asbestos research and other areas where understanding surface structure or particle shape is essential for product properties, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) is an essential technique. In this course, you will learn the theoretical background and practical skills to apply SEM independently in your own work environment. The course is provided in cooperation with JEOL.

For whom is this course intended?

You have recently or will soon be working with SEM. You want to master the skills of the apparatus and sample preparation.


Course content SEM from A to Z:

  • Introduction porous and non-porous materials, porosity and surface area
  • Physical gas adsorption
  • Mercury intrusion porosimetry
  • Chemical gas adsorption
  • Pycnometry
  • Comparison of techniques for porosity assessment
  • Quality, reference materials and standards

Theory and practical assignments alternate. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art instruments with which you perform relevant experiments in small groups under direct and expert supervision.


The Result
After the training, you will have gained sufficient skills to apply SEM in your own work environment with and make informed choices for your applications.

The diploma
After successful completion of this course, you will receive a certificate of participation.
