SAM coordinates the European PhD School on “Nanoanalysis using focussed ion and electron beams”. It focuses on 3 complementary techniques, SIMS, TEM and AES, with the purpose of forming specialists in the field of nanoanalysis. It consists of 4 teaching weeks and 1 analysis week composing a 2 year cycle. Lectures and practical sessions are given by leading professors and key researchers in the field. The practical sessions consist of tutorials on state-of the art instrumentation in small groups.
