First European Mineralogical Conference - Session 12a: Nano- to micro-scale platform in the geosciences: Advances in analytical techniques

Dear Colleagues We would like to draw your attention and invite you to contribute to Session 12b: УNano- to micro-scale platform in the geosciences: Advances in analytical techniquesФ at the First European Mineralogical Conference (EMC2012) in Frankfurt am Main (Germany), 2-6 September 2012. More information available on the website at http://emc2012.uni-frankfurt.de/index.php?id=4. Many mineralogical phases, as well as newly developed synthetic materials, occur in submicron to nanometer size scale, often intergrowth inside polyphasic systems. It is now well recognized that understanding the structural details at small size scales are important to modelling and probing the physical and chemical properties of materials and surfaces. Parallel to these insights, a continuous series of technological developments and improvements in many analytical methods with submicron to nanoscale resolution has taken place in the last few decades. This has led to extensive research activity and new frontiers in Earth and geosciences at small size scales. Thus, modern mineralogy research is focused on the characterisation of the structure and properties of mineral surfaces and related substances at these fine-scales. There is an increasing interests in in situ and rapid characterizations and determination of micro- and nano- inclusions and phase transitions of minerals with high accuracy and reproducibility. Other research interests include the development of controlled high pressure and temperature techniques which allow the simulation of structural alterations of microstructures and observation of processes occurring at the nanoscale under deep Earth or extraterrestrial conditions. Another important area of research is the development of in situ or ex situ techniques and methods for studying microstructures and mineralogical compositions in extraterrestrial samples The session is aimed at presenting the state of art and recent developments and applications of analytical methods for material characterisations and behaviour at fine-size scales in geosciences. The topics covered by this session include, but not limited to, state-of-the-art high resolution and aberration-corrected electron microscopy, super-resolution fluorescence, non-synchrotron X-ray and electron diffraction for nano-crystalline material characterisation, elemental analysis, 3D Tomographic Techniques and advanced spectroscopy techniques (e.g. IR, Raman, Mossbauer and luminescence techniques). Contributions discussing current challenges or future directions in nano-/micro-structure analysis and characterisation are particularly encouraged. The deadline for abstract submission is May 15th 2012. Early bird registrations are open up May 15th 2012. We look forward for your contributions.
