Atom probe tomography (APT) offers the enticing prospect of being able to determine the identity and position of nearly every atom in a material, providing the ultimate in elemental analysis.This Essential Knowledge Briefing introduces APT and highlights its impressive abilities which include producing astounding 3D images that show the atomic structure and chemical composition of materials, analyzing its most buried features and interfaces.The tutorial begins with a brief history of the technique, followed by a step-by-step explanation of how to conduct an analysis with modern-day atom probes. Several case studies illustrate the wide range of applications of APT, from metals to semiconductors, ceramics and even geological and biomineral materials, detailing how the technique is currently being used by scientists in their research.Indeed, today's most critical research fields are almost all covered by APT which enables scientists and engineers to generate new knowledge and understanding of the most complex materials.Essential Knowledge Briefings (EKBs) comprise a series of short original guides to the latest techniques, applications and equipment used in analytical science. Reviewed and updated annually, EKBs are an essential resource for scientists working in both academia and industry looking to update their understanding of key developments within each specialty. EKBs are free for you to download directly to your e-readerVisit:www.essentialknowledgebriefings.com for further information, relevant masterclasses or to download your e-book Essential Knowledge Briefings original science guides from New from Wiley

news33euMicroscopyandAnalysis | July/August 2017Thermo Fisher and KAUST open electron microscopy centreKing Abdullah University of Science and Technol-ogy (KAUST) and Thermo Fisher Scientific have opened the Electron Microscopy Center of Excel-lence at the KAUST campus in Thuwal, Saudi Arabia.The centre includes a FEI Titan Themis Z scanning transmission electron microscope, described as the most advanced analytical transmission electron microscope commercially available to date and the first to be installed in the world. "By gaining access to the latest characterization techniques, hardware and software available on the market, KAUST will have the opportunity to advance scientific research in the areas of chemistry and catalyst research, nanoparticles and life sciences," says Michael Shafer, president, materials and structural analysis, Thermo Fisher. Materials scientists can use the Titan Themis Z to understand relationships between a material's larger-scale physical properties and its atomic-scale composition and structure.This system joins other highly advanced electron microscopy systems already installed at the centre, including sixteen electron microscopes from Thermo Fisher.The Center of Excellence is the first implementation in a strategy by KAUST to build long-term partnerships with major instrument suppliers.The university hopes it will serve as a model for future opportunities to provide state-of-the-art research facilities, training and services to KAUST users and collaborators across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.The Titan Themis Z STEM in the KAUST Core LabsULTRA PRECISE PIEZO-Z FOCUSING STAGEThe Ultra Precise Piezo-Z Stage is a perfect solution for your super resolution microscopy applications. The stage is capable of XY resolutions down to the 10-20 nm range and Z resolutions to the 1nm range. It is also capable for use with rapid z-sectioning and autofocus systems. It prevents focus drift when used with our CRISP system.APPLIED SCIENTIFICINSTRUMENTATION www.optophase.com info@optophase.comwww.micrasys.com info@micrasys.comwww.asiimaging.cominfo@asiimaging.com(800) 706-2284(541) 461-8181Precision in Motioncustom-made piezo positionerswww.piezosystem.com/ma
