Research topics

Encapsulation allows exotic 2D structures in room temperature.

Two-dimensional materials provide several advantages for the growth of metal nanostructures over traditional substrates.

Control over atmosphere and temperature together with electric measurements allows the study of material response to external stimuli.

Introducing point defects such as vacancies and impurity atoms allow tailoring material properties.

Modern microscopy techniques such as 4D-STEM combined with machine-learning enable deeper understanding of materials properties.

First-principles modelling and scattering theory combined with precision measurements aids in understanding irradiation effects in materials.

Focused electron irradiation directed with atomic precision can manipulate covalently bound impurity atoms in crystal lattices.

Understanding structure-property relationship of amorphous bulk and nanoscale materials using transmission electron microscopy.

Our abTEM code is built for ab initio scattering potentials and is the fastest and most modern simulation tool for transmission electron microscopy.

Studying phase transformations in functional nanostructured materials using transmission electron microscopy and synchrotron radiation.
