This Working Group will focus on what details about electron microscopy experiments in materials science need to be recorded as common metadata. As a foundational step toward recommended minimal, common, lightweight metadata for materials electron microscopy, the working group will conduct a review of existing recognized electron microscopy metadata practices in cognate disciplines, e.g., life sciences, materials science and chemistry. The working group will document key features of selected domain metadata practices with references and links to help researchers find the example metadata that could be used or modified in materials microscopy. The group will then establish a demonstration project on several common samples, examined by multiple methods and instruments, to share microscopy data and metadata and to reproduce results across microscopy facilities.
