Jack Touran, Nikita La Cruz and Ryan Gabelman (left to right) attended the Electron Probe Microanalysis Topical Conference (EPMA 2016) held at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, WI. The week-long course is dedicated to quantitative microanalysis using wavelength-dispersive (WDS) and energy-dispersive (EDS) spectrometry on the electron microprobe and scanning electron microscopes. All three students report having a wonderful time and learning an incredible amount of new material that will help them during their graduate studies.
