‘Microscopy on the micro- to nano-scale: The STFC Central Laser Facility “Octopus” microscopy cluster’.
This is the fourth seminar in the University of Manchester at Harwell Ideas Forum Imaging series. The aim of this series is to increase networking of academics and researchers across the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the National Laboratories. In doing so, we hope to link experienced users with new users to teach them about the University of Manchester and the Harwell National Facilities.
Dr David Clarke, will talk about the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Central Laser Facility’s microscopy cluster, Octopus, which is based in the Research Complex at Harwell, and offers a wide range of laser-based microscopy techniques, and correlative microscopy using light and electrons. The facility is supported by a multidisciplinary team, able to guide the user through all aspects of the experiment, from sample preparation to data analysis and interpretation. In this seminar, Dr Clarke will describe the microscopy methods available at Octopus, and will show examples of the wide range of research carried out at the facility, ranging from cancer and infectious disease research, to the characterisation of designer nanomaterials.
This seminar will be recorded and available to watch after the event.
A zoom link will be sent to attendees the day before the seminar.
