Title
Recent advances in transmission electron microscopy for materials science at the EMAT Lab of the University of Antwerp
Author
Abstract
The rapid progress in materials science that enables the design of materials down to the nanoscale also demands characterization techniques able to analyze the materials down to the same scale, such as transmission electron microscopy. As Belgium's foremost electron microscopy group, among the largest in the world, EMAT is continuously contributing to the development of TEM techniques, such as high-resolution imaging, diffraction, electron tomography, and spectroscopies, with an emphasis on quantification and reproducibility, as well as employing TEM methodology at the highest level to solve real-world materials science problems. The lab's recent contributions are presented here together with specific case studies in order to highlight the usefulness of TEM to the advancement of materials science.
