Days of Electron Microscopy in Brno

Brno is characterised by a long tradition of electron microscopy, to the point that Brno is considered the cradle of electron microscopy in Europe.

This year 2017, it will be 70 years since the first electron microscopy was installed in Brno. In 1958, the Tesla BS242, a desktop electron microscope was awarded the gold medal at the World Expo in Brussels.

Currently, one-third of the world’s electron microscopes production takes place in Brno. TESCAN which is a clear example of the rich heritage of Brno’s electron microscopy, significantly contributes to these global figures. Innovations and constant development has consolidated TESCAN into a global company, which last summer, celebrated its 25th anniversary.

These are some of the reasons why TESCAN has decided to be part of Days of Electron Microscopy in Brno as a co-organiser; this event will be from May 15 to 21, 2017.

The aim of this event is to popularise electron microscopy not only in Brno but in the whole Czech Republic.
