This webinar will describe how the development of the first aberration corrected TEM, with which the point resolution could significantly be improved, could be carried out and which troubles or difficulties had to be solved. The continuation of the development advanced electron optical systems from the first working high resolution EM till today will also be highlighted.

Maximilian Haider was born 1950 in Freistadt/Austria and after an apprenticeship as eye-optician he studied physics in Kiel and Darmstadt and received his PhD in 1987 in Darmstadt. For his PhD-thesis he developed an electron energy loss spectrometer for STEM which was carried out at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). In 1989 he became a Group Leader within the Physical Instrumentation Program at the EMBL. In 1992 he started a project to set up a Cs-corrector for a 200 kV TEM together with Prof. Rose in Darmstadt and Prof. Urban in Juelich. In 1996 he founded CEOS GmbH in Heidelberg together with Joachim Zach. In 1997 he successfully finished the Cs-Corrector project and since this time he received many outstanding awards – most of them together with H. Rose and K. Urban.
