Electron Microscopy and Analysis Group
This is an IOP special interest group, which is a community of IOP members focused on a particular discipline, application or area of interest.
Special interest groups allow members to connect and share knowledge and ideas. The IOP funds groups to deliver a range of activities including events, prizes and bursaries. All of our groups are driven by members.
About the group
As a special interest, member-driven group, we promote the development of new techniques in the physics community and encourage their use over a wide spectrum of applications.
Our members are from physics and cognate disciplines that include chemistry, engineering and materials science.
Our group’s broad-based interests in physics research attract members from industry, academic establishments and government research organisations.
The use of electron beams for microscopy, lithography, and structural and chemical analysis has become an indispensable tool in:
- materials science
- electronic engineering
This trend is continuing as the range increases of analysis capabilities that overlap with other microscopies and associated techniques, including ion, light and scanning probe.
We started out as the Electron Microscopy Group in 1946 and changed our name in 1962.
What the group does
We welcome collaboration in areas common to physical and biological applications, particularly with those interested in instrumental or technique development.
We also support younger members to attend meetings and conferences.
