Max Sieger at Ernst-Ruska Centre for Electron Microscopy at the Forschungszentrum Jülich
This week (13-17 May), our ULTRASUPERTAPE project post-doc, Max Sieger, went to the Ernst-Ruska Centre for Electron Microscopy at the Forschungszentrum Jülich near Aachen in Germany to participate in high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) experiments on superconducting thin films.
With TEM researchers can have a look into materials on the nanometer scale, i.e. down to the very atoms! It is possible to find out about the way atoms take their position in the so-called crystal lattice, identify the different elements that make up a material, check interfaces with the highest resolution possible, and many more things.
The experiments are carried out by Dr. Alexander Meledin of the Gemeinschaftslabor für Elektronenmikroskopie (GfE) of the RWTH Aachen University on FEI TITAN top-level TEM devices.
The two researchers try to extract new knowledge on the ultra-fast growth processes for superconductors the SuMAN groups is recently developing.[su_carousel source=”media: 3851,3852,3853,3854″]
