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.
