In June 2013, we reconstituted a North American Cameca (“sx”) electron probe users group, with a meeting here in Madison organized and hosted by CAMECA, whose NorthAmerican headquarters is in Fitchburg, a few miles south of the University of Wisconsin. At that meeting, we ‘self-organized and created an ad hoc users steering committee  of Mike Jercinovic (U Mass Amherst), John Fournelle (UW Madison), Marty Yates (U Maine). The goal being to foster increased communication between Cameca electron probe users and Cameca application lab, service and sales personnel,  and between users.

At the AGU conference in December 2013, CAMECA hosted a lunch time meeting and Michel Outrequin gave a presentation.

In late July 2014, just prior to the IUMAS-Microscopy&Microanysis meeting in Hartford, we met at U Mass-Amherst, and a range of topics were discussed. Read a report of the 2014 users meeting.
