ZEISS Ultra Nanotomography User Meeting

Latest developments in 3D imaging at the nanoscale

27 - 28 June 2023

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology - KIT | Germany

Explore the Latest Trends & Connect with the International Community

We cordially invite you to our Ultra XRM User Meeting at the Institute of Nanotechnology, which is part of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.  The Ultra XRM user community will present applications and results from a wide range of material science fields in numerous lectures. In-situ 3D-Xray microscopy investigations, correlative microscopy workflows, as well as optimization processes in materials and life sciences using X-ray technology will be discussed among other interesting subjects.

Networking and discussions of latest trends among the international community will be an important part of the meeting. Furthermore, learn about ZEISS innovations and discuss techniques and workflows directly with our specialists.  Participation in the meeting, bus transfers between venues and the evening events are free of charge.
