Title: Microbeam Analysis Society (MAS)
Post by: John Donovan on July 15, 2019, 10:32:35 AM
This topic is for posts and discussion related to the Microbeam Analysis Society (MAS). I should first call everyone's attention to the Microbeam Analysis Society's web page:

This is a wonderful professional society which I joined back in 1986 and have been a member ever since. Their mission statement is:

The Microanalysis Society (MAS) is a non-profit professional association dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge concerning the principles, instrumentation, and applications of microanalysis down to the atomic level. Microanalysis broadly encompasses any analytical method for determination of materials properties at the micrometer and smaller size scale, or microgram or smaller mass scale. Common microanalysis methods include electron microprobe and microscope-based spectroscopies, X-ray fluorescence, and laser and ion mass spectrometries.

And I must say that they are very welcoming and friendly people. Here is their membership page if you are interested:

Other microbeam professional societies around the world are found on their affiliated international societies page here:
