Nanoscale Imaging Group

The group seeks to see what has never been seen before to understand and enable advanced manufacturing of nanoscale devices and nano-functional materials.

We develop new modes of spectrographic imaging or spatial resolved measurements using electrons, photons, electric or magnetic fields, or proximal probes down to the atomic scale in ambient, operating and in vivo environments. We apply Nanoscale Imaging to characterize nanoscale devices and nanostructured materials to study their physics, structure and function.
