Do you have a STEM equipped with a DPC detector?
You are not sure what to do with it?
How to acquire reasonable images?
How to interpret what you got?
Then you might be interested to attend our Workshop on DPC
During the first day we will provide the basic information on differential phase contrast issues. We will address
areas of application, limits of the technique and preconditions for operation. Another important point is the achievable sensitivity and how one may calibrate
During the second day you will get the chance to adjust the microscope and acquire your own images (you can bring your own specimens,
if you like to). The
acquired data will then be evaluated with our evaluation software in groups of two.
Unfortunately, the bottleneck is the availability of the microscope, so we have to strictly limit the number of participants to 8 persons,
who will be accepted in the order of their registration.
Current status: 8 of 8 slots occupied
Currently, the workshop is completely booked - if you happen to find out about it just now and still are interested to attend,
do not hesitate to send an email. We will keep a waiting list (in case somebody cancels his/her slot) and even think about
having a second workshop soon as we are surprised how fast the slots filled up. There seems to be a real need for this and if
we get sufficiently many requests there is a chance that the workshop will be repeated.
Please contact us any time in case you need additional information or help!
Please note that this workshop is sponsored by the German Society for Electron Microscopy DGE (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Elektronenmikroskopie)
and is free of charge! However, you will have to cover your travel and hotel costs by yourself.
The image sequence in the top right corner shows a remagnetization process as acquired by DPC.
Colours correspond to different local induction directions, and a complicated magnetic domain wall
comprising a magnetic vortex structure can be observed.
