Microscopy is a powerful and commonly used research tool. The ones listed here include those of us who are developing new methods and techniques. Our activities span instrumentation development, XX, YY and ZZ. The lists given below are an attempt to provide a brief summary of this diversity. The links to individual's web pages provide more details.

Academics and Their Research Areas


Dr Richard Beanland (electron microscopy, semiconductor materials and devices, functional ceramics, interfacial crystallography)


Professor Julie Macpherson (Development of new scanned probe techniques for nanoscale imaging; development of new electrode materials based on carbon materials; electrochemical and electronic device fabrication and structural and chemical characterisation of surfaces. Techniques employed include atomic force microscopy (AFM), modified for electrical and electrochemical measurements; (ii) scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) and (iii) SECM-AFM)


Dr Ana Sanchez (structural characterization of semiconductor materials using electron microscopy techniques, EELS in particular plasmon excitations, thin films and nanostructures)


Dr Jeremy Sloan (solid state physics and materials chemistry, carbon and non-carbon based fullerene-like materials, and advanced electron microscopy imaging techniques)


Dr Corinne Smith (structure and mechanism of clathrin coated vesicle formation during clathrin-mediated endocytosis using a range of structural and biophysical techniques)

Dr Neil Wilson (carbon nanomaterials, graphene, chemically modified graphene and carbon nanotubes, scanning probe microscopy, moleculate electronics)


Professor Pat Unwin (development of leading edge high resolution quantitative imaging techniques which are used to investigate a diversity of processes - for example: cell-membrane transport (biomimetic models and live cells); the growth
