The name SCANDEM was a truncation for the "Scandinavian Society for Electron Microscopy". This name was picked since just Denmark, Norway and Sweden (Scandinavia) were spoken to at the establishing meeting, and for a few years into the mid 1950s. Today SCANDEM incorporates all the Nordic nations (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden), and has additionally individuals from different nations.
The by-line "Scandinavian Society for Electron Microscopy" was in 2002 changed to "Nordic Microscopy Society". SCANDEM was established October 16, 1948, at the Research Institute of Experimental Physics in Stockholm. It has from that point forward served as a dynamic association concentrating on all viewpoints identified with microscopy. This incorporates improvements of the innovation, example arrangement methods, applications in material and life sciences and new sorts of microscopy. The vast majority of the individuals, more than 300 in 2012, originate from colleges, research establishments and businesses in the Nordic nations. To advance the information of microscopy in this environment the Society is organizing various exercises. A yearly SCANDEM meeting is composed by a neighborhood board. This 3-4 days occasion exchanges between the Nordic nations. It covers all viewpoints identified with microscopy and addresses are given by Nordic and in addition welcomed non-Nordic researchers. All members are urged to bring notices, which are talked about in uncommon sessions, and a couple publication prizes are typically granted.
