Electron Microscopy Events
A brief collection of past and current events related to electron microscopy at PNNL.
This three-day workshop gathers subject matter experts, managers, researchers, vendors, and students to discuss the progress and advances of molten salt reactor (MSR) technologies. This includes thermal or fast neutron spectrum reactor designs, as well as chloride and/or fluoride salt concepts.
Presentations will focus on molten salt chemistry, actinide and radionuclide chemistry under molten salt conditions, modeling, thermodynamics, corrosion, and safeguards. Additionally, this three-day workshop will include tours, a poster session, invited lecturers, exhibitors, and networking.
Join us August 30 through September 2, 2021, at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in the State of Washington to discover and share the latest in advancing molten salt reactor systems.
The Next-Generation Transmission Electron Microscopy Workshop (NexTEM) was a pre-meeting congress for microscopy and microanalysis 2019. The event brought together researchers from diverse backgrounds to present cutting edge electron microscopy tools and related applications. Specific areas of interest included advanced detector designs for all states of matter, recent developments in electron and phonon optics/instrumentation, in situ and ultrafast TEM, cryo TEM, as well as data analytics and computational methods. Stimulating discussion and presentation of electron microscopy tools at the intersection of these fields set the stage for advancement in these areas, as well as collaborative approaches to critical scientific issues in materials science, biology and medicine, physics, and chemistry.
The inaugural NexTEM workshop was held Oct. 8-10, 2018, in PNNL’s Discovery Hall. Approximately 60 participants, including many experts in the electron microscopy field, gathered for the event.
