Feel like a scientist while exploring how everyday objects look when magnified up to a million times, with the help of real scientists who work in Brno’s multinational companies, scientific workplaces and universities.
At present, more than 30% of the world’s electron microscopy production is based in Brno through three companies: Thermo Fisher Scientific (formerly FEI), TESCAN, and Delong Instruments.
It’s been 67 years since the first Czech electron microscope was produced in Brno.
English speaker-friendly highlights during the week of Electron Microscopy in Brno
Marie Lungová from Brno Expat Centre specifically pointed out two English speaker-friendly events during this fascinating week of science.
The Days of Electron Microscopy 2018 will feature screenings of the film “Nanoflights – Making the Unseen Visible”, preceded by a presentation by a scientific photographer Stefan Diller.
The presentation and the screening will take place twice: March 19 at the Academy of Sciences (Královopolská 147), and March 20 at the Observatory (Kraví hora 522/2) from 10:30 to 11:15 am.
