Transmission Electron Microscopy spectroscopy and diffraction

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM/STEM) is an effective tool for the analysis of crystal structure elemental/chemical-bonding and magnetic domain structure with a high spatial resolution. One of our goals is to develop/improve various advanced electron microscopy methods like scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM), electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS), Electron diffraction, Holography and Lorentz microscopy for the analysis of nanostructures. We also exploit the electron microscope as a tool for the realization of basic experiments in quantum mechanics:

- Electron Holography of magnetic materials and electromagnetic fields

- Orbital angular momentum (OAM) resolved /EELS: high spatial resolution Electron Magnetic dichroism and plasmonics;

- Basic experiment in quantum mechanics exploiting the Transmission Electron Microscope.
