Electron Microscopy of Catalysts
Scientific Organiser: Dogan Ozkaya, Johnson Matthey Technology Centre
Microscopy and catalysis is going through a tremendous transformation on many fronts. Quantitative imaging (atom counting) and tomographic techniques are coming up with nanoparticle structures that are being used by modellers to predict activity and selectivity, EDX and EELS are delivering not just compositional information but also chemical state maps. In situ techniques and holders have developed in a way that encourages exploiting of multi technique, through the lengthscale characterisation.There will also be a chance to see the new I14 nanoprobe beamline together with EPSIC facilities in Diamond Light Source at Harwell.
We are now accepting abstracts for oral and poster presentation at the Electron Microscopy of Catalysts meeting.
Please email your abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Abstract Submission Deadline is Thursday 12 October 2017.
We are accepting abstracts to the following session headings:
- Quantitative Imaging
- Analytical Microscopy
- in situ
• Abstracts should be submitted as a Word Document NOT a PDF
• Abstracts should be 300-500 words in length
• Ensure you include a full title, all authors and affiliations and references if appropriate
• Include Keywords if possible
• You may include images or diagrams where appropriate
• Please indicate your preference for oral or poster presentation
• Please indicate in your submission if you are a Student
• Abstracts should be emailed as an attachment to Dawn Hopkins
• Presenting authors are required to register, pay and attend the meeting.
If you are not able to attend or you have any questions, please contact Dawn Hopkins.

Dr Lewys Jones FRMS
University of Oxford
After a first degree in Material Science, I received my PhD from the Department of Materials at the University of Oxford in 2013. This focussed on two themes; scanning stability in the aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscope (AC-STEM) and also on applications of focal series of annular dark-field data. In 2014 a software plug-in for Digital Micrograph to correct scan-noise (the Jitterbug software) was launched in collaboration withHREM Research. More recently in 2016, another plug-in to bring fast non-rigid registration to DM was launched (SmartAlign).
I sit on the Editorial Board of the journal Advanced Structural and Chemical Imaging, and have been a Fellow of the Royal Microscopical Society since 2015.

Rowan Leary obtained his MEng/BEng in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Leeds, and his PhD from the University of Cambridge. He is currently a Junior Research Fellow at Clare College and the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge. His research involves the development of a variety of multi-dimensional electron microscopy techniques, and their application in the context of materials chemistry and catalysis in particular.
Prof Quentin Ramasse
Quentin Ramasse is the Director of the SuperSTEM Laboratory, the EPSRC UK National Facility for Aberration-Corrected STEM, and holds a visiting associate Professorship at the University of Leeds, U.K. He obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Cambridge as a member of the Microstructural Physics Group working on optical aberration measurements methodologies for aberration-corrected STEM. Before taking up his post at SuperSTEM he held a Staff Scientist position at the National Center for Electron Microscopy (NCEM) in Berkeley, a U.S. Department of Energy-funded user facility where he took part in the TEAM project which saw development of the world's first 0.5A electron microscope. Quentin Ramasse has published extensively in the field of STEM-EELS, with a dual focus on STEM technique development and on applications to a wide range of energy harvesting materials, from 2-dimensional materials such as graphene and MoS2 nano-catalysts to complex oxides.
Electron Microscopy of Catalysts is taking place at the Diamond Light Source, Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Oxfordshire
