Electron Microscope Unit Seminar on 7th September

Facility: Electron Microscope Unit

Dear all,

Just to bring to your attention a seminar which the Emu will be hosting. This talk will be by a Raul Arenal from the Univsersity of Zaragoza on “Atomic structure/configuration and physical properties studies of hybrid nanostructures by STEM-EELS”.  Raul is an expert in TEM and EELS especially in the study of nanostructures and this promises to be an excellent talk.

The talk is on 7th September at 1pm at 320A in the chemical sciences building. 

See the attached flyer for more information.

Best wishes,

Richard

Analysing small data sets - a mini overview (Seminar 12 July)

Analysing data sets with a small number of observations can be a challenge! This seminar will touch on some of the problems that arise in these analyses and outline a number of analysis methods, together with their limitations. The general types of method we will talk about are parametric (e.g. t test, ANOVA), non-parametric (e.g. Mann-Whitney, Kruskal-Wallis) and randomisation methods.
