Registration is now closed...


LEEM-PEEM is a biennial meeting reviewing the status of LEEM, PEEM, SPLEEM, XPEEM and related techniques. It aims at promoting and disseminating applications of cathode lens microscopy to a broad audience of interested scientists.

The Workshop highlights the most recent scientific advances as well as instrumental developments. Topics will cover surfaces, thin films, organic films, surface chemistry, magnetism, time resolved methods, instrumental advances and novel applications of LEEM, and PEEM to other subject areas.

The program will feature three Distinguished Guest Lecturers: Chuhei Oshima (Waseda University, Japan), Phillip First (Georgia Institute of Technology) and Eli Rotenberg (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), who will present research results relevant to the LEEM/PEEM field. In addition there will be over 40 contributed talks, as well a poster session. Talks will be presented from a dedicated PC, using PowerPoint. Distinguished Guest Lectures will be 40 minutes long (including 5 minutes for discussion), while all other talks: 20 minutes (including 5 minutes for discussion).


The Proceedings of the LP7 Workshop have now been published in the IBM Journal of Research and Development, in a special issue on Cathode Lens Microscopy for Nanoscience.

Abstract Submission

AbstractAn abstract (maximum 1 page, including figures) is required for each presentation. The deadline for the abstract submission is June 1st, 2010. Submit your Camera-ready PDF file with the abstract to the following email address lp7@us.ibm.com.


The organizers will offer a special LEEM/PEEM Tutorial for interested students and scientists on Sunday August 8, and Friday August 13, 2010. Instructors will be Michael Altman, Andreas Scholl, Jim Hannon and Rudolf Tromp. Session I, on Sunday August 8 will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York.

This part of the Tutorial will give an introduction to LEEM/PEEM for the dynamic study of surfaces, interfaces, thin films, etc. Session II, on Friday August 13, will provide a hands-on demonstration of LEEM/PEEM capabilities and instrument operation (both with and without aberration correction) at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY.

This Tutorial will provide a unique opportunity for students and scientist just joining the field to get an in-depth introduction to the LEEM and PEEM techniques, and to see two of the most advanced instruments in action. Of course, there will be ample opportunity for discussion and questions. Learn from the experts, so that you can be more effective when you return to your LEEM/PEEM system at home!

Participation in Session I will be limited to: 30
Participation in Session II will be limited to: 12
Registration fee for Session I: $200
Registration fee for Sessions I + II: $350

Please contact the conference office at lp7@us.ibm.com if you are interested in participating in the LEEM/PEEM Tutorial
