Microscope User Workshop Attracted over 150 Scientists

Published on April 30, 2009 at 6:42 AM

More than 150 scientists and users of the ZEISS CrossBeam® and Helium Ion Microscope systems met at the 1st European user workshop in Dresden. In several sessions the participants got an overview on current product developments and new applications.

Schloss Albrechtsberg, close to Dresden was a wonderful venue for the meeting. More than 150 customers came to present and listen to the latest application techniques and product news.

Following a presentation of the new AURIGA CrossBeam workstation (FIB-SEM) and its huge application potential, users presented deep insight in their current research and development work carried out with CrossBeam systems from Carl Zeiss. Topics ranged from applications in Semiconductor Technology to material analysis, thin-film based solar cells as well as fabrication of micro- and nanodevices for biomedicine.

A most eagerly anticipated session was dedicated to the ORION Helium-Ion microscope. „The presentations from Conny Rodenberg of University of Sheffield and Frank Altmann from the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials (Halle) made clear the unique potential of this exciting technology“, explained Gerd Maußner, from Areva NP GmbH (Germany), one of the participants of the meeting.
