Aberration-corrected microscopes bring 2020 vision to the nano-world

Abstract:
Advances in electron microscopy at Lehigh University are promising to shed light on the atoms of the nano-world that play a disproportionate role in the efficiency and safety of everyday materials. This spring, with support from the National Science Foundation, Lehigh will become the first university in the world to have two aberration-corrected electron microscopes. The new instruments will give scientists an ability they have long sought: to simultaneously image and determine the chemical identity of individual atoms in crystalline materials.
