A warm welcome to the Microscopy Research Group homepage!
The members of the microscopy research group have interests spanning materials systems across a large range of condensed matter physics, with particular emphasis on organic and inorganic semiconductors, functional ceramics, oxides, molecular electronic systems, two dimensional materials and nanotubes. Below are a few select images showing our work.

Using the probe to lift out a FIB lamella

We have extensive expertise in structural characterisation of materials on atomic to nano lengthscales, and are involved in technique development and the fabrication of nanomaterials and nanostructures. We are also lucky enough to have a bounty of new microscopes, and we have moved into a new purpose-built facility.



Congratulations to Dawn and Alex who have both been awarded poster prizes at this years Microscience Microscopy Congress.

Steve Hindmarsh has succesfully created a FIB lift out cake (as seen below).
