Atom Probe Tomography and Microscopy 2018

The 6-day, biennial meeting is the premier international gathering of 200+ interdisciplinary researchers, in the fields of high field nanoscience and atom probe microscopy. Topics of interest have included: correlative and combined techniques (e.g. electron tomography, SIMS, …); reconstruction methods; simulations, modeling and computational methods; field ion microscopy (FIM); laser-matter interactions; characterization of nanoscale materials and structures (metals, non-metals, semiconductors, organics, biologicals, and liquids); heat transfer at the nanoscale; optical properties at the nanoscale; instrument and technique development; and more! As always, there will be plenty of opportunities for informal discussion of new techniques and applications as well as getting (re)connected with your fellow researchers.
