Electron Microscopy

Electron microscopy is a type of microscopy that uses a beam of electrons to create an image of the specimen. There are two main types of electron microscopes: Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM). They allow one to observe specimens in vacuum with down to atomic resolution.

In our laboratory, we use electron microscopy to study morphology and structure of nanocrystals, thin films and nanowires of different materials.
