The newly established research line, “Electron spectroscopy and nanoscopy”, will develop and apply advanced electron microscopy techniques for the study of nanomaterials and devices. The current trend in developing new detectors for electron microscopy is a game-changer for the analysis of classes of materials that have been so far too challenging, like hybrid perovskites and metal-organic frameworks. Combined with synergies in microscopy techniques between life and physical sciences, such as routine cryogenic operation and dose-efficient acquisition software, these innovations will unlock impactful research in fields that are highly relevant to the research lines at the IIT.
The research will span different fields, with a focus on materials for energy applications. Exploiting the state-of-the-art Spectra TEM that has recently been installed at IIT, as well as the existing facilities, we will push the state of the art in the investigation of electron-sensitive materials.
