In-Situ Electrical Characterisation

When preparing samples for in-situ electrical characterisation, the preparation of lamella on a MEMS chip is usually a cumbersome procedure. However, new E-chips and processes have revolutionised sample preparation so it’s now a feasible workflow for your lab.

Come to the workshop to see live demonstrations and find out all about:

  • In-situ TEM and electrical characterisation
  • Sample preparation
  • How to prepare lamella on a MEMS chip using new procedures

The workshop will include live demonstrations using the Protochips Fusion in-situ heating and electrical biasing system.


The workshop is free to attend, but numbers are limited to keep group sizes small for the live demonstrations. Advance registration is required to secure your place. Register online with our quick form:


The workshop will be held at Imperial College London:
