TEM hands-on training week @ UNG


Prof. Sašo Sturm

Prof. Sašo Sturm is head of the Department for Nanostructured Materials at Jožef Stefan Institute (Ljubljana), Director of the CNRS-JSI International Associated Laboratory and vice-president of the Slovene Society for Microscopy (and former president). His deep experience in electron microscopy resulted in the award for the »Best Early Career Scientist«, EDGE 2005, Grundlsee, Austria (2005), and a Marie-Curie fellowship for the EU-Projekt: “Quantitative TEM of Defects in Materials” at the Max-Planck-Institute für Metallforschung, Stuttgart, Germany (2001-2002). He currently teaches an electron microscopy course at Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School (Ljubljana).

Prof. Goran Dražić

Prof. Goran Dražić is a senior scientist and the head of the microscopy group at the National Institute of Chemistry, Ljubljana, Slovenia and professor at the Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School where he is teaching courses on transmission electron microscopy. His scientific interests include the development and characterization of materials with advanced functional properties and the development and the implementation of electron microscopy and microanalytical techniques for the study of modern nanomaterials. He obtained his Ph.D. in the field of relaxor materials in 1990 at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia and was a visiting scientist at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany in 1990 and 1991. He was a project leader of four national projects and was chair or co-chair of five EU projects as well as several projects with industrial partners. In year 2000 he was awarded with the Zois Recognition of the Republic of Slovenia for “outstanding scientific achievements in the field of electron microscopy”. He is the author or co-author of more than 220 peer-reviewed papers with around 2700 citations and h-index of 30 (WoS).
