- Dr. Piyush Agrawal successfully defended his PhD thesis at EPFL on 20 December 2017: Characterization at the Atomistic Level of Defective Structures in Complex Materials: A Theoretical Study. Congratulations! PhD thesis Nr. 3 of Empa's Electron Microscopy Group.
New environmental SEM: Quanta 650 FEG from Thermo Fisher Scientific
User trainings start beginning 2018.
Here: new website for the ERC CLUSTER project with more information about our in-situ activities.
FEI Titan Themis: Empa's Electron Microscopy Center goes sub-Ångström. The new FEI Titan Themis has been put into operation end of 2016. The new microscope will be used for high-resolution imaging, analytics and in-situ measurements. First liquid cell measurements of nucleation reactions have been carried out successfully.
