Tooting my own horn here, but just FYI I will be presenting a talk at GSA in Seattle (Wednesday, October 25, in session D34, Magma to Volcano) entitled "Improving Precision and Accuracy for Trace Elements in EPMA" presenting my latest work on MAN and  Multi-Point bgds and other considerations for high accuracy, high sensitivity trace element characterization.

I'm just there for Wed but I hope to see you all if you will  be there. Drop me a line if you want to connect up and quaff a beer together.

I would like to draw your attention to an upcoming workshop on EPMA (Electron Probe MicroAnalysis), being held at Penn State Materials Characterization Lab on November 15/16. 

This is a workshop sponsored by both CAMECA and JEOL.  They will provide an introduction to the world of electron microprobe and also cover some more advanced applications such as low keV analysis and effects of contamination.  Some of these topics are also of interest to EDS users.

This workshop is for anyone, and we welcome those who have zero knowledge of EPMA but might be interested in applications to your own research.  EPMA is similar to EDS, but offers more elemental precision, with higher peak to background ratios and easier separation of peaks, plus low to trace level detection.  It is a very complimentary technique to many other instruments, such as EDS, XRD, Raman, XPS, Auger, and more!

Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided both days.
Cost is only $200 for non-Penn State attendees.

Registration can be found here:  https://www.mri.psu.edu/materials-characterization-lab/workshops/november-15-16-2017-electron-probe-microanalysis-epma

For further questions or inquiries, please contact Dr. Katherine L Crispin (klcrispin@psu.edu)

Hope to see you there!
Katherine

Dear Microanalysts,

I would also like to draw your attention to session A11 at Microscopy & Microanalysis 2018, "Solid State X-ray Spectrometry at 50 Years".

This session will center on X-ray spectrometry using solid state detection systems (i.e., energy-dispersive spectrometry), including the topics of detector design and evolution, detection and pulse-processing, spectrum processing, quantitation, compositional mapping, spectrum-image data cubes and their use, software, and applications of solid state spectrometry. This session will include combined techniques such as EDS-WDS microanalysis, cathodoluminesence, and micro XRF spectrometry.

In addition to a very interesting slate of invited speakers, we solicit contributed presentations from the community for this session.

Here is the call-for-papers summary of the session. Please contact me or any of the other session co-chairs for further information. This session is particularly suited for student contributions in the M&M environment. Student support via meeting awards can be applied for during the paper submission process.

The MSA website link to submit a paper is now active. The deadline for submission is Feb. 15, 2018:
https://www.microscopy.org/MandM/2018/

Solid State X-ray Spectrometry at 50 Years

50 years ago, Fitzgerald, Keil, and Heinrich published the first results obtained from an energy-dispersive x-ray spectrometer (EDS) in Science. From identification of unknown materials, to compositional mapping and quantitative microanalysis, EDS has advanced our understanding of an enormous range of materials and is used worldwide in microanalysis and microscopy laboratories. The symposium will link historical and technical developments of solid state x-ray instrumentation, data processing, applications, and emerging detection systems. Perspectives on the developments in EDS from a technological and educational perspective will be featured, including invited and contributed presentations from the inventor, vendor, and scientific communities.

o   State-of-the-art solid state x-ray detector instrumentation
o   Soft x-ray and light element analysis in the field emission SEM
o   Nano to atomic resolution microanalysis by STEM
o   Quantitative analysis methods - limits and limitations
o   Spectrum imaging and data processing
o   Complementary methodologies including micro-XRF, combined WDS-EDS, XRD, and EBSD

Hi everyone,

We invite you to submit an abstract to the upcoming session entitled “Planetary Building Blocks and the Techniques Needed to Analyze Them” at the Microscopy and Microanalysis Conference in Baltimore, MD from August 5-9, 2018. The abstract submission deadline is February 15, 2018.

 
Symposium Description:

After successful missions to collect solar wind (NASA Genesis), cometary dust (NASA Stardust), and asteroidal regolith (JAXA Hayabusa) and with the successful launches of the JAXA Hayabusa2 and NASA OSIRIS-REx missions, the planetary-materials community is firmly within the era of sample return. The proposed symposium solicits papers that use microscopy and related techniques to explore the origins of planetary materials. We welcome contributions that discuss a range of topics including but not limited to: current analytical approaches, developments in new characterization strategies, developments in spatial and spectral resolution for pushing spectroscopic detection sensitivity and precision, and new protocols for sample handling.

 
Please find the template and submission instructions here:

Hi Julien,
I see a call for papers, but no abstract format is specified.  When are abstracts due for giving a presentation?

The instructors will be Ioannis Baziotis, Jasper Berndt, Pierre Lanari, Ery Hughes and Angeliki Papoutsa. The workshop will consist of a series of lectures on the theory and practice of the EPMA instrument followed by focused seminar on its application to solid Earth sciences. Topics will range from conventional major element quantitative analysis to new developments in X-ray mapping, trace element analysis, Fe redox state determination, and estimate of water content in hydrous glasses. All attendees will be asked to provide a brief oral presentation on their research and analytical goals during the workshop. Participation comes with a follow-up opportunity for access to the instrument (see details below).

Free Access to the EPMA facility
All selected applicants will have the opportunity to analyze their rocks (polished thin/thick sections or 1-inch circular mounts) in the 12 months following the workshop.  Participation comes free of charge with up to 2 analytical days (8 hours per day of operator-supervised work and 16 hours per day of overnight automated data collection). Further analytical time can be requested as needed, but will be charged at the hourly rate for outside users.

Target Group
The workshop targets MSc students, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and early career scientists from across the EU and beyond.

Registration

This is a plug for the webinar version of a lunch talk that I attended at M&M last year and found very useful:

"Choosing the Right Coating Material for EM Sample Preparation" hosted by Rave Scientific on July 16, 2019:
