A European Research Council program on single dopant detection by holography has given the Titan Ultimate transmission microscope yet another chance to prove its worth. The microscope, installed at PFNC in October 2011, delivers resolutions of 50 picometers, allowing researchers to see things they never could before. They can now use new techniques like chemical mapping and carbon-based materials imaging at the atomic scale, as well as imaging of fragile materials like nanotubes and polymers.
A team of 10 operators has been trained to use the equipment for researchers at Leti, Liten, and INAC. Research currently underway includes dopant detection by chemistry and imaging, studies into graphene, batteries, and nanoelectronics systems, and joint R&D projects with PFNC partners.
