Scope

This school will provide a thorough background on the principles of the atom probe technique, from the theory of the field evaporation to data mining. Lectures will focus on the basics of APT with a special emphasis on up-to-date techniques (laser-pulsing, DLD detectors, FIB specimen preparation). Beside this lecture series, practicals are organized including specimen preparation, Field Ion Microscopy, APT analysis and data mining.
