Dale-abration: Celebrating Dale Newbury's 50 years at NIST

Unfortunately I won't be able to attend this "Dale-abration"! (but I appreciate that Dale loves a good pun), so I just wanted to say here that Dale is a gift to the scientific (or any other) community: Dale is intelligent, thoughtful, friendly, creative, funny, dedicated, hard working, helpful and focused (pun intended!).

As a NIST associate I'm sure he will stay active and continue to teach and advise the next generation of microanalysts and he has done (and continues to do) for me.  I will never forgot my first scientific meeting in Hawaii where he was more than happy to answer all my silly microanalysis questions, especially after hours in the bar, drawing many figures and equations on paper napkins (as one does!).

What a scientific and community asset Dale is to all to all us!  Please post some pictures to this topic from the event.  Here's one from another event in 2014:



This is Dale at a Cameca EPMA and it appears that we are examining the planet Saturn or is it Uranus?   Attached below is a PowerPoint from that workshop, and from it we can clearly see that he is a scholar, a gentleman and a comedian!
The only stupid question is the one not asked!

We are very excited to announce our first Probe Software Applications webinar* on Zoom!

The webinar is free and open to all and will consist of a number of short demonstrations of the many advanced features and methods in our software applications. Presentations will be given by Anette von der Handt (UBC), Julien Allaz (ETH Zurich),  Joe Boro (LLNL), Aurelien Moy (UWisc), Dale Burns (Stanford), John Donovan (PSI), Gareth Seward (UCSB), and Will Nachlas (UWisc). Each presentation/demonstration will be 12 minutes long with 3 minutes for questions from the webinar participants. After the presentations, the webinar will stay open for a short time in case there are any follow up questions on any topic.

If you have NOT already received an email about this webinar, please write to barbara@probesoftware.com with a request to be included on the list to receive the webinar registration link on October 11.

The program is as follows:



*Note: A link for registering will be sent out by email a week before the event. Please be sure to click on the link to register for the webinar by Tuesday Oct 17, 2023.

Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for the cross-postings, but we hope you will consider submitting an abstract to Symposium A07, "Triumphs, Trials, and Trepidations in Quantifying Low-Z Elements with Microanalytical Methods," which will take place at M&M2024 in Cleveland, OH. Abstracts must be submitted by 11:59PM PST on 16 February, 2024, and may be submitted at https://microscopy.org/m-and-m-meeting. A full description of the symposium is below - we hope to see you in Cleveland!

The Symposium A07 Organizers,
Joseph Boro, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Anette von der Handt, University of British Columbia, Canada
Owen Neill, University of Michigan
Samantha Rosenberg, Lockheed Martin


Symposium Description

The light elements are all around us, but quantifying them on the micro-scale is one of the most tasking analytical chores! Have first hand experience working on these problems? Consider submitting a paper to our symposium A07, "Triumphs, Trials, and Trepidations in Quantifying Low-Z Elements with Microanalytical Methods." for M&M2024 in Cleveland, OH.

Recent advances in instrumentation and data treatment have greatly increased the ability to detect and quantify low-z elements (hydrogen-fluorine; Z=1-9) in solid state materials. Nevertheless, accurately measuring light elements with microanalytical techniques (WDS, EDS, EELS, SXES, SIMS, FTIR, XPS, AES, etc.) encounter a number of issues that are either not relevant, or much less impactful when analyzing Z>9. These challenges include detector design, standards, sample preparation, and more. Presenters are encouraged to submit work that shows off new methods and technologies for analyzing and quantifying light elements or improvements on existing methods.

We are pleased to announce our second Probe Software Applications webinar on Zoom which will occur on Jan 17th at 9:00 AM Pacific (US west coast) time!

The webinar is free and open to all and will consist of two demonstrations of many advanced features and methods in our Probe Software software applications. Presentations will be given by Anette von der Handt (UBC) and Julien Allaz (ETH Zurich). Each presentation/demonstration will be 35 to 40 minutes long with a few minutes for questions from the webinar participants. After the presentations, the webinar will stay open for a short time in case there are any follow up questions on any topic.

If you have NOT already received an email about this webinar, please write to barbara@probesoftware.com to receive the webinar registration link before Jan 17th, 2024.

The program is as follows

9 am - 9:40 am PST: First steps in acquiring high precision, high accuracy EPMA data using Probe for EPMA by Dr. Anette von der Handt

Ten-minute break

9:50 am – 10:30 am PST: Versatility in bremsstrahlung (“background”) correction: Off-peak, vs. Mean Atomic Number, vs. Multi-point background corrections by Dr. Julien Allaz

These talks will be recorded and made available a few days later on the Probe Software, Inc. YouTube channel found here:

https://www.youtube.com/@ProbeSoftware

We look forward to seeing you at the webinar on Wednesday 9 AM January 17 Pacific time (US west coast)!
