Research interest

  • Cs-corrected (S)TEM and Electron holography:
    • High resolution at 200kV and 300kV (High-Tc superconductors (YBCO etc.), semiconductors (Si, Ge, GaAs, GaN), ferroelectrics (BaTiO3, PbTiO3, LiNbO3), heterostructures (LaAO3/SrTiO3  etc.), porous structures, magnetic shape memory materials (Ni50Mn30Ga20)
    • Medium resolution using Cs-corrected Lorentz lens (magnetic particles/domains, semiconductors)
    • Low voltage high resolution Electron holography (≤ 80kV) (graphene)
  • Image simulations
  • Electron optics
  • Analytical methods (EELS, EFTEM, EDAX)

Research project

  • Strom aus Luft und Li - Effiziente bifunktionelle Sauerstoffelektroden
  • Nickelate heterostructures as a laboratory for many-body physics (DFG)
