welcome to the picoscale
As scaling continues to be a major drive of research, future developments rely upon electron microscopy to probe the nature of material properties. In the nano-regime, one must explore local atomic structure, chemical composition, and bonding with ultimate spatial resolution. Now that aberration corrected microscopes have blown past the Ångström in resolution, a new level of clarity is available for exploring next-generation materials.
Positions are available at both the graduate student researcher and postdoctoral scholar levels. To find out more, contact Prof. LeBeau.
