9thAnnual FIB SEM Workshop

Friday, February 19th, 2016
Kossiakoff Center
Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory
Laurel, MD

Another successful FIB SEM meeting!  The 2016 FIB SEM Workshop was held at the Kossiakoff Center at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL). We had a full day of presentations and posters by FIB users and vendors highlighting interesting new FIB applications and the latest technology. And, as always, there were plenty of opportunities for informal discussion of new techniques and applications as well as getting (re)connected with the fellow FIBers.

We will be collecting the slides and posters from the presenters over the next few weeks and updating the website as the materials become available, so please check back frequently.

For more information about the FIB SEM meetings, please contact the organizers or check out our Meetings page for previous years' programs.
