The International Field Emission Symposia gather scientists from the field emission, nanoscience, atom probe and laser-matter interaction communities. The conference will cover various topics, including fundamental physics, simulation, instrumentation and advanced technological applications :
High Field Physics and Nanoscience:
Field ion emission
Field electron emission
Liquid metal ion sources
Near field microscopy
Trajectories of charged particles
Ultra-fast related phenomena
Atom probe Tomography:
Instrumentation and related physics
Atom probe specimen preparation
3D data mining
3D image reconstruction
Nano-analysis of Metallic alloys
Analysis of micro-electronic materials
Nanostructured materials nanosciences
The symposia will include plenary sessions with keynote lectures given by international experts, parallel sessions for oral presentations, poster sessions and also workshops for intensive discussions and exchange of ideas.
At each Symposium, an "E.W. Müller Outstanding Young Scientist Award" is made for the best orally-presented paper in a competition. In 2016, the award went to Michal Dagan from the University of Oxford for her paper on the developpement of an automated reconstruction method for the observation of point defects in irradiated materials with the 3D FIM. Congratulations!
The last meeting took place in Washington DC in 2018. The next meeting will take place in Oxford University (UK) in 2020.
