New Plenary Speaker Announced
Dr Max Haider, co-founder and leader of CEOS GmbH has been announced as a Plenary Speaker for EMAG at mmc2015.
He has joined an impressive list of Plenary Speakers already confirmed to talk at the mmc2015 conference. Dr Haider is set to speak at 1100 on Thursday 2 July.
Dr Haider is co-founder and leader of CEOS GmbH, which has pioneered the development of spherical and chromatic aberration correctors, and produces the majority of correctors currently installed in transmission electron microscopes.
Dr Haider studied physics in Kiel and Darmstadt and received his PhD in 1987 in Darmstadt with an experimental work which was carried out at the Europaen Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL.) In 1989 he became a Group Leader withing the Physical Instrumentation Program at the EMBL. In 1992 he started a project to set up a Cs-corrector for a 200kV TEM together with Prof Rose in Darmstadt and Prof Urban in Juelich. In 1996 he founded CEOS GmbH in Heidelberg with Joachim Zach.Dr Haider is one of the pioneers of technology that overcame the 60 year old problem of spherical aberration in the electron microscope and has now revolutionised the performance of the TEM. His work has also encompassed monochromators and detector technologies in STEM.
In 2011 he was awarded the Wolf Prize in Physics, and at mmc2015 he will be awarded with an RMS Honorary Fellowship.
Register for the mmc2015 conference to hear Dr Haider speak. Early Bird Registration is only in place until Friday 1 May.
