3rd Jülich Lecture: Electron Microscopy at the Frontiers of Materials Science

Microscopy represents one of the major breakthroughs of modern science. PICO is ER-C’s new ultrahigh-resolution electron microscope and allows unique insights to be acquired into the world of atoms. These insights are key to innovations, especially in materials research and nanotechnology, wich aim to respond to the major questions of our global society. Prof. Dr. Knut Urban, Prof. Dr. Joachim Mayer and Prof. Dr. Rafal E. Dunin-Borkowski gave an insight into this topic in October 2012 as part of the Jülich Lecture series.

PICO: The Electron Microscope

The electron microscope PICO has a record resolution of fifty billionths of a millimetre. It allows users from science and industry to study atomic structures with the highest precision possible and to achieve progress in areas such as energy research and information technology. The devices was inaugurated at the Ernst Ruska-Centre (ER-C) on the campus of Forschungszentrum Jülich in February 2012.
