Focus Ion Beam (FIB) is an extremely useful and powerful tool in physical/materials science, engineering, biological and medical sciences research. The AIM Lab at NanoCenter will be offering a short course in FIB during this winter break (January 2018) using our new Tescan dual beam FIB system. The short course provides an introduction to the FIB for those with little or no prior experience. This course covers basic principles and knowledge of operating the FIB. In addition to lectures, there will be an emphasis on laboratory exercises that focus on instrument operation and practical applications.
