Discus the Latest Advances in Electron Backscatter Diffraction at EBSD 2020

EBSD 2020

At the University of Sheffield this April, members of the Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) community from the UK and beyond will gather for EBSD 2020. Held annually, and organised by the Royal Microscopical Society (RMS), the EBSD meeting presents an opportunity to highlight the most recent developments in EBSD technology and applications. EBSD has applications in the fields of geoscience, materials science, mechanical engineering, and is also beginning to be applied to biological sciences.

Throughout EBSD 2020 a series of talks will be held, discussing breakthrough developments in EBSD instrumentation and software, as well as Kikuchi diffraction, electron channelling contrast imaging (ECCI) and related microscopy modalities. A range of application-focused discussions will be featured, highlighting new approaches to exploring the microstructure of materials systems. This year, a pre-meeting workshop is also being held, focusing on combining EBSD with High Resolution Digital Image Correlation (HRDIC).

CN Tech at EBSD 2020

Materials Testing & Electron Microscopy Solutions from CN Tech

CN Tech provides a selection of innovative solutions for electron microscopy in materials research. At EBSD 2020, we will be displaying our range of Swift Instruments in-situ miniature tensile stages, which have been specially designed for EBSD applications. Swift Instruments’ tensile stage technology can be fully customised to suit varied applications, and can perform accurate mechanical tests at the EBSD angle.

We are also the UK distributor for COXEM, a South Korean manufacturer of Scanning Electron Microscopes. COXEM’s EM-30AX Series of Desktop SEMs provides high-end features such as EDS in a compact benchtop form factor. The CX-200 Plus SEM provides high performance imaging and can be configured with EDS, EBSD, and CL detectors. Our representatives will be happy to discuss our range of SEMs, as well as our other SEM upgrades, such as in situ nanoindentation stages and plasma cleaning systems.

EBSD 2020 will be held at The Edge, University of Sheffield, on the 21st and 22nd April 2020.
