Applications of aberration-corrected high resolution electron microscopy

The department has installed one of the world’s few electron microscopes with aberration correctors in both the condenser (probe-forming) and objective (image forming) lenses and with a unique monochromated electron source. This instrument is capable of recording images with 70pm resolution. Several projects are available that will develop experimental, theoretical and computational techniques for exploiting aberration corrected imaging. Possible materials candidates for experimental and theoretical studies include complex oxide ceramics, surfaces, nanocatalysts and carbon nanotubes.

The description above outlines a possible new research project being offered to prospective new postgraduate students.
