The work is carried out within the strong group CMM and our work is focused on characterisations of nanoscale materials.
We have developed dedicated in-situ tools that enables us to probe and manipulated materials inside electron microscopes, such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The instruments all for simultaneous characterisation and imaging, a unique feature that has not be possible before. We can thus probe electrical and mechanical properties in free-standing nanoscale structures, both inherent properties and strain induced changes can be probe, simultaneous with imaging on the atomic scale.
