Symposium A5: 15 Years of Focused Ion Beams at M&M
The first FIB session at M&M 2000 consisted of 20 papers and was dominated by applications of Ga+ focused ion beams for TEM specimen preparation. Since then, the use of FIB-based instruments has expanded to 3D analysis, specimen preparation for atom probe tomography and other techniques, nanomachining, and nanodeposition for inorganic materials, organic materials, and biological materials in ambient and cryo conditions. In addition, the development of new ion sources beyond LMIS to GFIS and ICPS using e.g., He+, Ne+, Xe+, and other ions have allowed unique imaging, analytical, milling and deposition capabilities while expanding usable length scales. Papers are encouraged on topics of focused ion beams including instrumentation, theory, and applications.
Symposium A12: 3D Imaging and Microanalysis: Image Analysis and Applications
Recent advances in detector technology, microscopy instrumentation and computing resources enable routine 3-dimensional structural, elemental and chemical imaging of materials, providing unexpected insights and better understanding of biological processes and material properties. However, advances in 3D imaging and microanalysis also introduced challenges specific to 3D analysis including multi-dimensional data processing and management problems. In this symposium, we will focus on the new methods and approaches in 3D imaging and microanalysis, novel 3D analysis applications, and data processing topics such as computational, mathematical and computer vision methodologies for characterization of 3D structures in physical and biological sciences.
