The department’s research is aimed at

  • the analysis and understanding of the relation between the properties of crystalline materials and their structure, composition and morphology,

  • energy filtered transmission electron microscopy allowing the joint investigation of atomic arrangement, composition and electronic structure with unprecedented energy resolution,

  • the realization of in-situ measurements combining structural investigations with for example electrical measurement or a gas atmosphere at elevated temperature in the transmission electron microscope,

  • and in-situ modification of materials at the nano scale.

In addition, the department provides facilities and service for elctron microscopy investigations.
