Welcome to EMSI 

Electron Microscope Society of India (EMSI) was inaugurated on 2nd December 1961 at Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics by Late Prof. S. N. Bose as a collective effort of several scientists including Prof. N. N. Das Gupta and Dr. (Mrs.) S. M. Sirsat. The first conference of EMSI was held on 2nd and 3rd December 1961. Dr. N. N. Das Gupta was elected as first president of the Society. The society was formally registered with the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies, Calcutta in March 1962. The foundation membership of the society consisted of about 50 members engaged in electron microscopy work in about 15 laboratories in India.

The society is affiliated with International Federation of Electron Microscope Societies (now renamed as IFSM) ever since 1962 and in fact was its 15th Member at that time.

President's Message
Dear friends,
It is my pleasant duty to welcome you all, who have visited the web site of EMSI.
Since EMSI-2015 in July in Mumbai, the EC has been formed and the first EC meeting was held in Kalpak am on 3rd October, 2015.
Many of the suggestions in the AGM of 2015 have been discussed in the EC meeting and activities for the tenure of the current EC, 2015 to 2017 are finalized.
Our target is to build one floor above the strong foundation laid in the previous years by our past EC's.
Our activities for next two years include several 2 days workshops, two to three weeks summer/winter training on electron microscopy and organize our flagship programme of EMSI-2016 well. All these activities would balance the materials and life sciences activities of the country.
EMSI is dynamic only because of your constant inputs.
Kindly post your comments to strengthen EMSI to serve the microscopy community of our country,
Looking forward to your constructive suggestions for a vibrant EMSI,
With regards,
M. Vijayalakshmi
