Opt 307/407 Practical Electron Microscopy and Advanced Topics

Concept: This course serves as a portal to the micro- and nano-worlds visible with the aid of high resolution microscopies. From fundamental technologies right up through practical hands-on operation of the lab equipment the students get what they need to both understand AND DO microscopy.
