Joint Symposium Technical University Munich & ZEISS

3D X-ray Microscopy and Multimodal SEM

High-resolution imaging in correlative workflows

Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), Garching, Germany

Experience recent achievements in correlative, multi-modal imaging and characterization techniques

It is our pleasure to invite you to the upcoming symposium on high-resolution imaging in correlative workflows, which will take place on November 7-8, 2023, at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Garching, Germany.

This symposium will focus on the latest developments in X-ray microscopy, SEM technology, and research, including Multi-SEM, as they relate to the fields of materials science and life sciences. The symposium is intended to bring together experts from these fields to share their knowledge and discuss current challenges and future opportunities.
The symposium will feature a range of speakers, who will present their cutting-edge research on these topics. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in stimulating discussions.
