Meeting 2022 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Moving Forward from a Pandemic: How the Field of Materials Science Has Adapted (2022 Student-led Symposium)
Presentation Title Maintaining a Productive Electron Microscopy Facility in the Face of COVID-19
Author(s) Nicholas Guy Rudawski
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Nicholas Guy Rudawski
Abstract Scope The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a myriad of constraints and necessary safety protocols in virtually all elements of the global community. Those of us in the electron microscopy community were no exception to this as we were forced to develop new and innovative methods to allow our facilities to remain open and productive in the face of such challenges. Ultimately, we engineered solutions that ranged from simple and rather obvious to more involved and technologically advanced to allow new instrument users to continue to be trained and for us to continue providing effective service to our customers using our instruments. This presentation will discuss these challenges and solutions and how operation of our electron microscopy facility was fundamentally changed even after the constraints and safety protocols related to COVID-19 were relaxed and ultimately removed.
