Discovery Hall, Richland, WA
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is pleased to host the inaugural Next-Generation Transmission Electron Microscopy (NexTEM) workshop. This event will include three full days of invited and contributed sessions on topics including high-resolution imaging and spectroscopy, in situ / operando microscopy in extreme environments, as well as computational methods for data analysis. NexTEM will bring together experts in cutting-edge imaging methods, technique development, and data analytics to identify emerging pathways to more efficient and insightful materials analysis in real-world conditions.
Located in beautiful Richland, Washington, PNNL is home to 5,500 scientists and engineers tackling the world’s toughest challenges in chemistry, materials science, climate science, and national security. The laboratory operates several unique electron microscopy facilities, including the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory Quiet Suite and the newly-launched Radiological Microscopy Suite. The workshop will feature tours of these facilities, as well optional visits to the historic Manhattan Project B-Reactor and the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). Workshop participants will be treated to a banquet at a local winery, where they can sample some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest vintages while enjoying the beautiful fall landscape of the Columbia Valley.
We hope that you will be able to join us!
