New possibilities with aberration corrected electron microscopy









The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG



Organised by Dr Andrew Bleloch, Professor David Cockayne FRS, Professor Angus Kirkland and Dr Peter Nellist

In the past few years, the capabilities of electron microscopes have been transformed by the ability to overcome lens aberrations, in the way that spectacles transform poor sight. This is possibly the most significant development in microscopy in the past thirty years. This meeting will explore the opportunities that the new aberration correctors bring, and the challenges that remain.
Invited speakers: Professor Andrew Bleloch, Dr Chris Boothroyd, Professor Michael Brown FRS (Chair), Professor David Cockayne FRS (Chair), Professor Christian Colliex, Dr Ulrich Dahmen, Professor Pratibha Gai, Professor Peter Goodhew FREng (Chair), Dr Max Haider, Dr Peter Hawkes, Professor Archie Howie FRS, Professor Hannes Lichte, Professor Ute Kaiser, Professor Angus Kirkland, Dr Ondrej Krivanek, Professor David A Muller, Dr Peter Nellist, Dr Steve Pennycook, Professor Harald Rose, Professor John Silcox (Chair), Professor Etienne Snoeck, Professor John Spence  (Chair), Professor Nobuo Tanaka, Professor Knut Urban, Dr Masashi Watanabe, Dr Joachim Zach, Professor Yimei Zhu.
The proceedings of this meeting are scheduled to be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
