Special topic seminar 11/16/17

Dr. Paolo Longo, Gatan Inc.
“Latest advances in EELS data collection: high-speed data acquisition and increased energy range.  From biological, soft materials to heavy metal alloys.”

Thursday, November 16th 12:30 – 1:30
Sorenson Molecular Biotechnology Building (SMBB) auditorium (2650)
University of Utah

Lunch will be provided immediately following the seminar
