The training course will be postponed to October. The exact date and further details will follow soon.


First day: lectures
Second day: lab tour
(Agenda see below)


R. Koops (VSL): Welcome to VSL and practicalities
D. Hodoroaba (BAM): The EMPIR project nPSize
L. Crouzier (LNE): Metrology of SEM measurements of nanoparticles
T. Klein (PTB): Metrology of TSEM measurements of nanoparticles
R. Koops (VSL): Metrology of AFM measurements of nanoparticles
C. Hörenz (BAM): Sample preparation for nanoparticle imaging
N. Feltin, D. Hodoroaba et al. (SMD/LNE/BAM): Hybrid methods for microscopy of nanoparticles (SEM/TSEM/AFM)
M. Bryan (POLLEN): Machine learning in nanoparticle metrology
T. Dziomba (PTB): Standardization
A. Schmidt (BAM): OECD projects on nanoparticle characterisation

The training course will focus on the challenges associated with the preparation, measurement and data analysis of nano particle reference materials within the framework of the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) project nPSize. The metrology of SEM, TEM and AFM methods for particle imaging will be presented as well as a hybrid metrology approach, standardization and machine learning for advanced analysis of measurement data.

Target audience

The training course will include lectures from key stakeholders and project partners including BAM, LNE, PTB, SMD, Pollen and VSL and is targeted at PhD students, reference materials providers, accredited laboratories and instrument manufacturers.
