“If one knew the positions of all the electrons in a material, there would be no need to find where the nuclei are”. Traditional electron microscopy determines the nuclei positions and we are now aiming to develop methods for locating the electrons. This will revolutionise the study of almost all materials and will provide a new level of structural information for comparison with theoretical models. This project will aim to establish new methods using oxides and low dimensional materials including Graphene as test materials using aberration TEM with advanced image simulation incorporating Density Functional Theory.
The description above outlines a possible new research project being offered to prospective new postgraduate students.
