Advanced Electron Nanoscopy

The aim of the group is developing and applying Electron Nanometrology tools such as Transmission Electron Microscopy advanced techniques and related spectroscopies (EELS, EDX and CL) for Nanotechnology and Materials Science. Nowadays there is a serious global need for the development of nanoscopy tools in order to be able to observe and chemically analyze the synthesized nanostructures at atomic scale. Exploring the limits of physical resolution in advanced electron microscopy and understanding the ultimate behavior of materials at the nanoscale and their related properties are the central aims of our research. The newest research lines we are working in are based on single atom recognition and localization in embedded quantum structures. In parallel we are interested in finding methodologies to perform a direct correlation between the structural and chemical properties at the atomic scale and the physical properties at sub-nanometer scale (photonics, plasmonics and phononics).
