Advanced Materials Characterisation WEAF and the Plymouth Electron Microscopy Centre

Written: 25 November 2014

Date: Wednesday 3 December

Time: 09.30 – 14.00

Venue: Plymouth University’s Electron Microscopy Centre (PEMC)

The PEMC is inviting businesses to join them for an event they’re hosting with the West of England Aerospace Forum (WEAF), which will explore the relevance and use of electron microscopy in precision engineering, aerospace, defence and manufacturing businesses.

Not only will attendees get the opportunity to have a look around the PEMC and meet companies from across the region involved in the aerospace supply chain, but they will also hear from experienced speakers who include:

  • ·        Simon Young – WEAF
  • ·        Kim Larsen – Oxford  Instruments (characterising materials, using EM)
  • ·        Professor Neil James –Plymouth University (aircraft materials and accident investigations)
  • ·        Victor Arghyrou – UTC Aerospace (why we use the PEMC)

AND – feel free to bring along a component or sample on the day for the team to analyse for free (if you’re an SME based in the south west, excluding Cornwall), thanks to ERDF funding.
