Atom Probe Tomography workshop

At this Atom Probe Tomography workshop at Hultgren Laboratory, leading APT scientist will present current-state-of-the-art and future of APT instrumentation, as well as application examples.

Time: Fri 2020-11-20 10.00 - 16.10

At Hultgren Laboratory we aim to establish atom probe tomography (APT) as a technique in our suite of advanced characterization tools. APT is capable of 3D mapping of materials structures with sub-nanometre spatial resolution and can therefore provide new insight into a variety of materials systems.

We are pleased to invite you to the first APT workshop organized by the Hultgren Laboratory. We believe your experience and application areas would benefit the community that we want to bring together around APT experimentation.

At the workshop, leading APT scientist will present current-state-of-the-art and future of APT instrumentation as well as application examples. In addition, we would like to survey your potential need and requirements to use APT at KTH to solve your research and development problems. The aim is to establish APT for both academic and industrial needs, complementing the existing research infrastructure in the region, and which can easily be integrated into your current workflow.
