Dr Reza Kashtiban

Restored Phase of Monolayer Garphene by Inline Holography
Reza is an experimental physicist and material scientist with particular interest in the structural and compositional properties of nanomaterials by means of advanced Transmission Electron Microscopy. He had been a visiting academic of UK mide-rane electron microscopy facilities at Daresbury Lab (SuperSTEM, 2007-2010) where he used Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS) technique in Plasmon and core loss regimes to study semiconductor nanostructured materials. Reza also specialise in phase restoration by Exit Wave Reconstruction of Focal Series also known as inline holography.

His current research themes involves growth and compositional characterisation of encapsulated composite nanostrucures, 1D radial heterostructures and 2D materials. He has also expertise on the study of porous materials, functionalised carbon based materials and phase change nanomaterials.
