ACMiN Seminar: „Atom Probe Tomography”
It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the ACMiN Seminar which will be held on Thursday, March 3rd at 2.00 p.m. To participate in the meeting please visit the link below:
The lecture entitled „Atom Probe Tomography” will be given by Prof. Marek Przybylski (Akademickie Centrum Materiałów i Nanotechnologii i Wydział Fizyki i Informatyki Stosowanej AGH).
It is my pleasure to introduce to you a relatively new experimental technique called Atom Probe Tomography (APT), in particular, its version known as Local Electrode Atomic Probe (LEAP). The lecture will start with a short introduction, including the history and practical applications of atomic probes so far. Following a brief overview of the physics and capabilities of atomic probe tomography, I will introduce the Atom Probe CAMECA system. I will discuss the most important technical details of the instrument. A significant part of my presentation will be devoted to the preparation of samples, which are crucial for all APT systems. The advantages of APT technology will be highlighted by several examples drawn from the fields of physics, chemistry, geoscience and materials engineering. Finally, I will compare the APT with electron tomography. I hope that I will manage to convince you that such an instrument will be very useful for many researchers at our university. I also would like to inform you that for „marketing“ reasons the lecture will be delivered in Polish basing on the slides prepared in English.
