The second JEOL ARM TEM User Meeting was held on the 24th and 25th of June at the Stuttgart Center for Electron Microscopy, in Stuttgart, Germany. 50 people attended from across Europe and were happy to also be joined by a user from South Africa and by Dr. Eiji Okunishi from JEOL Japan.
The program included talks by users in the UK, France and Germany, and two presentations from JEOL on the latest applications of the monochromated ARM and of low-voltage microscopy. At the end of the presentations on Day 1 there was a ‘Round Table’ discussion, admittedly without the round table, that none-the-less allowed all the users to share questions, stories and tips. The discussion was very lively and very helpful, with a large number of users speaking up and the active participation of JEOL representatives. A summary of the topics discussed, and a ‘wish list’ from the users will be circulated.
The final element of the program was demonstrations at the two StEM ARMs by Dr. Okunishi on Day 2. Dr. Okunishi showed the alignment process at 80kV for imaging carbon nanotubes and, on the probe-corrected machine, he showed the Ronchigram and the large flat area achievable with the DCOR (ASCOR) corrector. 
There was general agreement that the meeting was useful and that discussions should continue between users through email and the JEOL web-forum and, of course, through the continuation of the user meeting series, so it is great news that several institutions have volunteered to host the third ARM User Meeting in 2016.

StEM joins the MPI for Solid State Research

On April 1, 2015 the Stuttgart Center for Electron Microscopy (StEM) formerly of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) moved to the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research (MPI-FKF). The transfer of the Center, led by Prof. Dr. Peter van Aken, is an outcome of the scientific evolution of MPI-IS and adds great strength to the analytical capabilities of MPI-FKF.

The Stuttgart Center for Electron Microscopy (StEM) possesses extensive expertise in the field of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Besides conducting its own research, StEM also collaborates with departments in both Stuttgart Max Planck Institutes, as well as with other research institutions and industries.

The new affiliation with MPI-FKF offers exciting opportunities for StEM to build deep collaborations, to extend current research and to expand into new research areas. Research projects at StEM address a wide range of topics, including the characterization of materials for advanced battery and fuel cell designs, the performance of in-depth analyses of tailored complex oxide materials on the path to novel electronics applications, and the imaging of molecules on graphene and of bio-mineralized self-assembled nanostructures. The StEM group has some of the best technology available for studying plasmons, in a wide variety of systems.

StEM is motivated and energized by the new doors opening - the new possibilities arising from the group’s warm welcome into MPI-FKF. This is an exciting time to be a microscopist in Stuttgart.
