In a research fields investigating the chemistry and interaction of delicate, organic samples, analytical tools like X-ray crystallography, Cryo-EM, and NMR are often employed to study a “snapshot” of these materials and processes.

Unfortunately, many of the characterization tools typically available to life science and biology researchers are incapable of delivering in situ data about dynamic interactions and nanoscale structural changes in real time. With the dawn of liquid cell TEM, it is now possible to image biological samples in their native, hydrated environment at resolutions sufficient to glean information about their structural and chemical evolution in real time. This technique has already been utilized to study the RNA transcription of rotovirus particles inside the TEM, where the liquid environment inside the microscope was able to mimic temperature and chemical conditions inside the human body. In other studies, real time observation of therapeutic nanoparticle migration across the cell wall provided insights into current and future drug delivery opportunities.

In this webinar, researchers Deb Kelly and Madeline Dukes will present these and other findings on how liquid cell TEM offers unprecedented opportunities for uncovering new insights in the fields of life science and material science. They will overview the basics of liquid cell TEM, present applications and results from their research, and provide insight on the past, present, and future of life science research tools.

·      Find out why you should be using liquid cell EM to accelerate your research

·      Learn why liquid cell EM is becoming a standard tool for life sceince and biology research.

·      Discover the numerous applications benefiting from liquid cell EM, including yours.

·      See how new Protochips systems are improving lab productivity

Design for PM Seminar

The Design for Powder Metallurgy Seminar will mainly focus on the design of Powder Metallurgy (PM) structural parts. Participants will be shown PM's advantages and techniques by leading experts from both industry and academia.

After the introduction on Powder Metallurgy (processes, materials and a comparison with alternative technologies), the mechanical behaviour of PM materials will be discussed in correlation to porosity and in relation to the microstructural features of PM steels. The two main damage mechanisms of structural parts, fatigue and contact fatigue, will be discussed in detail.

The guidelines imposed by the key step of the technology, i.e. by shaping, will be presented to introduce the topic on design, which will continue with the specific description of design for fatigue and, as an example, of a PM gear and three other case studies.

This intensive 2-day training course will be beneficial to designers, particularly in the automotive sector and to technical and managerial personnel, as well as end users who wish to gain a more comprehensive idea of designing by the PM process.

11th Symposium on Hysteresis Modeling and Micromagnetics (HMM 2017)

The 11th Symposium on Hysteresis Modeling and Micromagnetics (HMM 2017) that will be celebrated at the University of Barcelona and organized by the Group of Magnetic Nanomaterials from Condensed Matter Physics Department and the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (IN2UB). This will be the 11th in a series of medium format (around 100-130 participants) conferences devoted to hysteresis modeling and micromagnetics that were started in 1996 at the George Washington University Virginia by Prof. Edward Della Torre. The workshop will last 3 full days (May, 29th to 31st 2017) .

Continuing with the tradition of previous editions, the HMM Symposium has an interdisciplinary and international nature and is intended to be a forum for presentation and discussion of the most recent advancements in the fields of hysteresis modeling and computational micromagnetics. Although special emphasis will be made on magnetic hysteresis, there will be sessions in the program focused on universal aspects of hysteresis, independent of its origin. 
HMMM aims to bring together scientists with a wide range of backgrounds (physicists, mathematicians, material scientists, engineers, etc) to exchange ideas, methods and ideas, and to present their most recent results. 

The 11th HMM will have a three-day scientific program structured in different thematic sessions dedicated to topics of interest as detailed below, with no parallel sessions. We will invite some renowned scientists to give keynote talks and experts in different fields to give invited talks about subjects of their expertise. We will also accept contributed talks and posters.

The conference will cover contributions related (but not restricted) to the following topics:

  • Mathematical model of hysteresis.
  • Preisach and vector hysteresis modeling.
  • Hysteresis experiments and measurements.
  • Nonmagnetic hysteresis.
  • Classical spin models, random-field models, domain wall models, etc.
  • Dynamic hysteresis, thermal relaxation, after-effects.
  • Micromagnetics, theory and numerical techniques.
  • Micromagnetics, applied to nanostructures.
  • Biomedical and technological applications.
  • Quantum Magnetic Hysteresis.
