Diffraction methods and electron microscopy


Diffraction methods provide quantitative structural information of periodic structures and are therefore complementary to scanning probe microscopies. We employ both electron and x-ray diffraction to study molecular and quantum materials. A special role is played by our aberration-corrected electron spectromicroscope which combines nanometer-resolved microscopy with micro-diffraction and spectroscopic capabilities.

Research Topics

  • Aberration-corrected spectromicroscopy
  • Chemically-resolved vertical structures with sub-Angstrom resolution
  • Interfaces between molecules and crystalline phases
  • Epitaxial 2D Materials
