Microscopy and Microspectroscopy of Nanomaterials in Liquids
Internationally known academic and industrial experts in the field of optical and electron microscopy and spectroscopy of liquids and opto-fluidics will join this exciting workshop to discuss the most critical technological insights, discoveries and new practical applications. The workshop will cover the fundamental techniques such as optical microscopy, TEM, SEM, AFM, Raman and FTIR for a wide range of possible applications, from microbiology and chemistry to materials and optical engineering. The workshop will also include hands-on demonstrations and will offer the opportunity to test participants’ samples on-site.
We are accepting abstracts for Poster Presentations.
The Abstract Submission Deadline has been extended until Tuesday 1 August 2017.
• 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 in your submission if you are a Student
• Abstracts should be emailed as an Attachment to Victoria Masters
• Presenting authors are required to register, pay and attend the meeting. Should you not be able to attend, please contact Victoria Masters at your earliest convenience.

Prof Beverley Inkson
Engineering & Physical Sciences Section Chair
University of Sheffield
Beverley Inkson is Professor of Nanomaterials in The Dept of Materials Science and Engineering at The University of Sheffield, where she leads the NanoLAB Centre. Beverley joined the RMS as a PhD student in Electron Microscopy at Cambridge University, and served on the RMS EM section committee while a Royal Society University Research Fellow. She set up the UK NanoFIB network in 2001, and has run numerous Focused Ion Beam scientific meetings joint with the RMS. Beverley’s research interests focus on the use of electron and ion microscopies to quantify the nanomechanical and functional properties of 3D nanomaterials, including developing novel in-situ SPM-TEM and tomographic characterisation methods.
"I am excited to be the first Chair of the new Physical and Engineering Sciences Section, and look forward to developing an exciting programme with active involvement of the new generation of young scientists."
Dr Roland Kröger
Engineering & Physical Sciences Section Secretary
University of York
Roland is a Reader at the Department of Physics in York with a strong focus on Nano- and Biomaterials using electron microscopy and other materials characterisation tools. Roland obtained his PhD at the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Science and Technology in Braunschweig/Germany and has since built a large expertise in Materials Physics and Materials Science covering diamond thin films, metal/semiconductor nanostructures, nitride based light-emitting devices, metal nanoparticles for biomedical applications and biominerals. In the past years he has increasingly become interested in novel in situ techniques studying processes in liquid environments using aberration corrected electron microscopy.
"There is a lot of scope in bringing together 'traditional' Materials Science and the Life Sciences which is a key aspiration for me as Secretary of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Committee"
