Research activities at CIME
Research is a key function of the Electron Microscopy Centre enabling it to provide a wide range of the latest techniques to researchers at the EPFL.
The main areas of this research are:
– computational electron microscopy with its ability to calculate high resolution images and diffraction patterns for quantitative interpretation of EM images.
– 3D imaging and analysis with focused ion beam microscopy for Materials and Life Sciences
– Cathodoluminescense in the scanning/transmission microscope with the new Jeol 2200FS currently being installed
– Electron energy loss spectrometry.
The CIME is also involved in a number of other research projects in which electron microscopy plays a key role.
