About the event


Center for High-resolution Electron Microscopy (CћEM)in School of Physical Sciences and Technology (SPST), ShanghaiTech University is pleased to announce the Inauguration and the International Symposium, to be held on May 27-29 2018. 

The purpose of the symposium is to promote and support scientific exchange and relationships between ShanghaiTech and the greater international community. The format will be a single stream of elite-level, international plenary lectures. The topic will focus on Electron Microscopy and its interaction with Materials, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Plenary presentations from leading international experts across the fields will provide a broad perspective on current research and educational developments as well as point to future challenges and opportunities for innovation.

Message from the IFSM President to CћEM, SPST, ShanghaiTech University

I would like to congratulate the establishment of the Center for High-resolution Electron Microscopy (CћEM) at the School of Physical Science and Technology (SPST), ShanghaiTech University, China. The rapid development in industries in China as well as in East-Asia region is obviously linked with the advancement of pure and applied sciences related to electron microscopy. The special efforts which are dedicated to microscopy researches and education by using the state of art microscopes at CћEM will be critically important not only for Chinese scientists but also all microscopists in the world. This activity clearly matches the vision of the International Federation of Societies for Microscopy (IFSM).

IFSM is the only international organization of academic societies and related industries on microscopy, and now consists of 38 societies from all over the world. IFSM organizes a series of meetings on microscopy (International Microscopy Congress, IMC) once every 4 years. The next IMC19 will be held in Sydney, Australia on 9-14 September, 2018. Thousands of microscopists are expected to participate in the IMC19. The scientists from China and the activities associated with the Chinese Electron Microscopy Society (CEMS) are one of the most influential factors for the IFSM event.

Recently, IFSM was admitted as a full Union member of the International Council for Science (ICSU) at the 32nd General Assembly in Taipei on October 23, 2017. This indicates that international scientific societies recognize the importance of microscopy and that the visibility of IFSM has significantly increased.

I am confident that CћEM, SPST, ShanghaiTech University will play an important role on the current researches and educational developments as well as identifying future opportunities and challenges in electron microscopy for innovation. IFSM is expecting a big contribution by the CћEM to international scientific activities such as IMC.

About ShanghaiTech

 ShanghaiTech is a young resource-rich university with a modern residential campus in the heart of Shanghai Pudong’s Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park. With an academic focus on STEAM research, ShanghaiTech is committed to carrying out China’s national development strategy and nurturing the next generation of innovative scientists, inventors and entrepreneurs. 

With the backing and support of the Shanghai Municipal Government and China Academy of Science, ShanghaiTech’s five schools and three research institutes seek cutting-edge solutions to address the challenges that China and the world is facing in the fields of energy, material, environment, human health, and artificial intelligence.

About CћEM

Centre for High-resolution Electron Microscopy (CћEM) has been newly established as a major research facility at the School of Physical Science and Technology (SPST), ShanghaiTech University, China. Its mission is to promote the advancement of electron microscopy science and to support research activities in SPST. The research focus of CћEM is toward soft and electron-beam sensitive materials, at the intersections of Materials, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology For education, the Centre is dedicated to provide all users, including PhD students, opportunities to gain basic knowledge and practical skills in electron microscopy.

The inauguration of CћEM will take place in May 27-29, 2018. The installation of a state of art S/TEM (JEOL Grand ARM300F) with double correctors will be completed just before the inauguration. This instrument will add to the existing lineup of 200kV and 120 kV TEMs, and W- and FEG SEMs at CћEM . The Centre’s future instrument development plan includes an expansion into environmental TEM and in-situ characterisation capabilities, including the time/energy domain.

With the above background, the Centre will organise an International Symposium for the inauguration. The purpose of the symposium is to promote and support scientific exchange and relationships between ShanghaiTech and the greater international community. The Symposium format will be a single stream of plenary lectures. The topics will focus on Electron Microscopy and its interdisciplinary interactions with Materials, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Plenary presentations from leading international experts across the fields will provide a broad perspective on the current research and educational developments as well as identifying future opportunities and challenges in electron microscopy for innovation.

Note1: ShanghaiTech University and JEOL will establish a corporative program. This will start immediately after the installation of GrandARM300F for 3+3 years.

Note2: I was appointed as a Distinguished Adjunct Professor from May 1st, 2015 for three years to pursue followings (i) to establish an advanced electron microscopy centre, (ii) to carry out cutting-edge innovative research and publish high quality scientific papers, (iii) to promote interactive collaborations, (iv) to recruit and train graduate & post-graduate students and (v) to assist undergraduate education and research training. Some of the University buildings were just under-construction, when I was appointed. However, I am so happy after three years, as we are going to have the Inauguration of CћEM with the strong support from Shanghai City Government, ShanghaiTech University leaded by the President Prof Mianheng Jiang, SPST Deans/Vice Deans Profs Peidong Yang, Zhi Liu and Chia-Kuang Tsung. Without their support, this won’t come true. Many have dedicated their time and efforts into the development of the Centre. I want to thank all of them, and specially by mentioning following names, Qing Zhou, Yanhang Ma, Yi Yu, Jian-Min Zuo, Qing Zhang, Yanyan Jia, Hayin Zhu, Weiyan Liu and Lei Chen.
