Sherif wins RMS Beginners competition

Congratulations to SEMS PhD student Sherif Elsharakawy who won the annual Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) Beginners competition for his presentation entitled ‘Multiple Length-Scale Imaging of Biomimetic Hierarchical Mineralized Materials’. The competition is held during the annual conference of the Society for Electron Microscope Technology (SEMT).
Sherif is pictured here receiving his award from Dr Alex Ball, Secretary of the SEMT.  Mohammed Al-Mosawi also presented in the competition from QMUL and both students gave excellent presentations that impressed this broad ranging electron microscopy conference attended by more than 130 delegates from around the UK.

Kseniya's  SEM image "Plum Tree" made it into the RMS calendar for 2017!

Image shows platelets of calcium phosphate that has been grown in a mineralising solution.
The purple octagonal shapes are Si containing impurities found in this particular sample.
The platelets have bundled up to form a tree branch. This work aims to understand calcium
phosphate formation in order to, one day, control the process.

Pair distribution function obtained from a transmission electron microscope

25 April 2016

Prof. Gunnar Svensson and Dr. Cheuk-Wai Tai from Stockholm University (Sweden) are visiting us on the 25th of April. 
They will give a seminar about obtaining and analysing of electron pair distribution functions.
The seminar will take place at 2 pm, Room 3.26 in Francis Bancroft.
The title of the talk is “Pair distribution function obtained from a transmission electron microscope”.

 

 

Nadja's  SEM image "I never promised you a rose garden" made it into the RMS calendar!

Electron Microscopy Characterisation of Organic-Inorganic Interfaces

22 February 2016

This brand new one-day meeting will be held at Queen Mary University of London, People’s Palace, Mile End Campus on the 22nd of February and aims to stimulate collaboration between life science and material science microscopists for solving interdisciplinary materials problems using the knowledge and expertise of both communities.

The workshop will consist of lectures from experts in both life science and material science electron microscopy and from technological/industrial partners covering a broad range of microscopy techniques (aberration-corrected transmission electron microscopy, cryo-EM, FIB-SEM and TEM tomography, EELS, holography, etc.).

Provisional program to the event

A trade exhibition and a poster session will provide great opportunities for discussions. We believe that this format will foster creative thinking and inspire new ideas and collaborations.

Scientific Organisers: Dr. Nadezda V. Tarakina, Dr. Roland Fleck, Dr. Andy Bushby

Abstract submission deadline for poster presentations is the 8th of January 2016!!!
