Congratulations to the 2021 Major Award Winners!

The Major Awards of the Society honor distinguished scientific contributions to the field of microscopy and microanalysis by technologists and by scientists at various career stages, as well as distinguished service to the Society. The honor will be conferred at the upcoming Microscopy & Microanalysis 2021 (M&M 2021) meeting.   Please congratulate this year’s awards […]

ZEISS SCOPEs Grant: Apply to win a free microscope for your K-12 classroom

During these challenging times, science teachers are seeking ways to develop cutting-edge, engaging remote-learning lessons and curriculum. ZEISS has launched a granting program to give away microscopes throughout the school year of 2021 to K-12 schools in districts that are interested in incorporating digital microscopy into their lesson plans in the coming year.

Virtual EPMA Workshop from Athens

The Agricultural University of Athens has announced that it will be holding a five-day workshop from 5-9 April 2021 on the use of the electron probe microanalyzer (EPMA). There will be a particular emphasis on modern developments and geological applications.  The workshop is designed to educate undergraduates, graduates, and early career researchers in the theory […]

2020 MAS Fellows and Awardees


  • MAS Webinar: Approaches to Additive Manufacturing Materials Characterization at ORNL’S MDF Part 2

    April 29, 2021  3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    Please join us for our next MAS webinar at 3pm Eastern Time (US and Canada) on April 29th. Donovan Leonard will present Approaches to Additive Manufacturing Materials Characterization at ORNL’S MDF Part 2. No registration is required.

    The link to attend the April webinar is here: April webinar
    A flyer for the April event can be found here: Flyer

    Webinar description: 
    The idea behind this two part webinar by the Microanalysis Society is to open the doors of a DoE user facility, the ORNL Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF), and show others how materials characterization is being done on materials relevant to additive manufacturing. Techniques like X-ray CT, FESEM, TKD, EBSD, EDS, WDS are applied at MDF to determining solidification microstructures on the nanoscale and presence of hot tearing in larger millimeter scale builds.

    April schedule:

    Donovan N. Leonard; “Additive Manufactured Inconel 738 Turbine Blades: A needle in a haystack” (300-315pm)

    Andres Marquez-Rossy: “Xray CT at the ORNL Manufacturing Demonstration Facility” (315-330pm)

    Amy Godfrey: “Laser Powder Bed AM 316L Elemental Segregation During Rapid Solidification of Single Weld Pools” (330-345pm)

    Kevin Sisco: “AM AlCuCeX Alloys, Microstructures and 2nd Phases: No Easy Task” (345-400pm)

    We hope you can join us! If you have any questions, please send them to: masmembership@the-mas.org.
