Novel Characterization Methods

To construct efficient materials at the nanoscale, we must thoroughly understand the way atoms and molecules are arranged.

Our investigations use electron microscopy and spectroscopy to determine the qualities of nanomaterials. By identifying their composition and characteristics, we can gauge their value to a variety of applications. We determine the essential qualities of materials pertinent to nanoscale dimensions and relevant for microelectronics, biomaterials, quantum structures, MEMS devices, organic and quasi-1D devices and thin film materials.
