Hello, EMSI members and other visitors of this page.
As you know or have found out already, this society is more than 5 decades old! It's stood the test of time under the able leadership of stalwarts from the Indian Electron Microscopy community, that spans across the realm of materials-scientists as well as life-scientists.

The horizontal type transmission electron microscope, claimed by experts as the first to be built over two years - 1946 to 1948 in Asia by a team of scientists lead by Prof N N Das Gupta founder president of EMSI and now at display in SINP, Kolkata.
