Upcoming: ASTM E42 Surface Analysis Community Forum on 11/06/2020

ASTM committee E42 on surface analysis invites you to attend our community forum discussion on issues affecting credibility in XPS analysis and interpretation. Join us for a virtual discussion of this surface analysis research community topic and help determine the best solution path that addresses these pressing issues. 

MAS webinar: “TKD 101: An Introduction to Transmission Kikuchi Diffraction”

Please join us for another MAS webinar on November 20 2020 at 1 p.m. (EDT)! Chad Parish, Oak Ridge National Laboratory will talk about the basics of Transmission Kikuchi Diffraction, analytical strategies and error sources and show a few examples of practical materials problem solving using TKD. The live webinar will consist of a 50-minute presentation, followed by a Q&A.

Congratulations to Best Paper Award Winners!

Each years, MAS gives out awards for superior microanalysis papers presented at the previous year’s Microscopy and Microanalysis meeting, judged to be best in each of four categories. See who this year’s winners are.

Congratulations to the 2020 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 Microscopy & Microanalysis 2020 (M&M 2020) meeting.

Congratulations to the Class of 2020 MAS Fellows!

The Microanalysis Society will induct three more members of the Society as the Class of 2020 MAS Fellows. The honor will be conferred at the Microscopy & Microanalysis 2020 (M&M 2020) meeting. Members of the Class of 2020 MAS Fellows are Christopher Kiely, Lothar Strüder, and Yimei Zhu.

NIST Workshop (2020-07-13): Current Status and Future Perspective of In-Situ Electron Microscopy for Electronic and Quantum Materials

New developments in electron microscopy (EM) instrumentation now enable the observation and measurement of nanoscale processes in electronic and quantum materials for in situ/operando experiments. These experiments can provide fundamental insight into the structure, chemistry, and functionality of materials in their native or working conditions, measured at high spatial resolution and under various stimuli, such […]

Reduced New Rates for the M&M 2020 Virtual Meeting

Dear MSA and MAS Members, We are very excited to provide the MSA and MAS communities with a virtual Microscopy & Microanalysis meeting the first week in August 2020! We are working hard to deliver a great virtual meeting on a very tight timescale. Many of you are eager to learn the details as soon […]

May 22, 2020 webinar: “Imaging SARS-COV-2 safely: Protecting the microscopy community”

As the SARS-COV-2 pandemic progresses, scientific focus will gradually shift from frontline testing and tracking capability to studying the fundamental cell biology of the virus and clinical progression of virus infection in human tissues. This webinar brings together expert microscopists and virologists who are studying inactivation of virus in cells and tissues for safe handling, […]
