SALVE International School

In the frame of the SALVE I-II project, ZEISS has donated to Ulm University an endowed professorship for a leading expert in Electron Optics and ZEISS and Ulm University have realized a senior guest professorship for Professor Harald H. Rose. The professorships are important for education of future microscopists at Ulm University and other scientists. They will act actively in the SALVE international School.

SALVE microscopy is supposed to explore undiscovered fields in electron microscopy. Therefore all four important bases belonging to microscopy: the instrument, the sample preparation, the imaging and spectroscopy modes and the imaging theory need to be re-questioned and, if necessary, developed further. The SALVE School will cover fields belonging to low voltage transmission electron microscopy of electron-beam-sensitive materials The annual school is intended for researchers and students.
