Building on the established series of schools and workshops held at SuperSTEM every two years, this years school is going beyond the typical syllabus of introductory courses. Following recent advances in instrumentation, this year's school will address advanced topics in Cs-corrected STEM and spectroscopy techniques and introduce theoretical methodologies & computational tools necessary to rationalise and simulate experimental findings.

The lectures are intended for PhD students, post-doctoral researchers as well as academics and professionals that have an existing background in electron microscopy or relevant theoretical background. Topics covered: principles of aberration diagnosis & correction advanced imaging theory EELS & EDX spectroscopy quantitative image analysis and simulations Introduction to DFT and band structure calculations.

The lectures will be complemented by practicals in small groups, including hands on operation of the SuperSTEM instruments and introduction Band Structure and Spectra Calculations by the SPR-KKR Method. The school program includes a scientific poster session. Participants are encouraged to bring a poster and present some of their work.

The SuperSTEM Summer School was made possible in part through the generous support of the RMS, Nion Co. , Hitachi, Bruker, STFC and EPSRC
