EMAL 40th Anniversary Symposium

The EMAL 40th Anniversary Symposium was held on October 19th and 20th, 2009, from
8:00am - 5:30pm in 1670 Computer Science & Engineering, on the North Campus of the University of Michigan

This symposium was organized by John Mansfield in order to celebrate the establishment, in 1969 of the University of Michigan Electron Microbeam Analysis Laboratory. The lab was established by Professor Wilbur C. Bigelow, then a professor of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering. The first instruments purchase were an electron microprobe analyzer and a scanning electron microscope. The EMAL history continues...

The EMAL 40th Symposium was held in conjunction with the Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) Annual Van Vlack Lecture series. The presentations for the main body of the symposium were all alumni of EMAL from across the years and the Van Vlack Lecturer presented a keynote lecture at the end of the day. The Van Vlack Lecturer for 2009 was Professor Edwin L. (Ned) Thomas, the Morris Cohen Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and Head of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Massachusetts Institutie of Technology. The close ties between UM's MSE and EMAL meant that this merger of events allowed not only a economy of scale, but an expanded platform of speakers.

The symposium was a two day event, a day of presentation, followed by a reception and dinner, and then a second day of presentations. The first day featured an opening presentation, jointly presented by Wil Bigelow and John Mansfield, on the history and development of the Electron Microbeam Analysis Laboratory. There then followed presentations by five alumni of the facility, some of whom had been at Michigan at the beginning. During the afternoon coffee break on the first day,a student poster competition showcased current student research based in EMAL.
