Advanced electron microscopy platform

Studying the structure and chemical nature of materials from the micron to the atomic scale is essential to understanding their fascinating properties. To this end, electron microscopy is a multi-functional characterization tool that provides access to morphological, structural, chemical and electronic information on massive or nano-structured materials.
The advanced electron microscopy platform of the Pris-cité University offers the following state-of-the-art equipment to the scientific community (academic and industrial researchers). Access to this platform, located in the MPQ laboratory, is granted on request by the MEANS TEAM. This platform is part of the CNRS PANAM service group, which brings together state-of-the-art electron microscopy equipment from Sorbonne and Paris Cité universities, and the CNRS-funded national network of Transmission Electron Microscopy and Atomic Probe (METSA).

Revealing the secrets of anisotropic nanoalloy synthesis

The synthesis of nanomaterials by chemical routes has long been developed empirically due to the lack of techniques to probe the dynamics of nano-objects in liquid media. In recent years, so-called "in-situ" approaches have emerged on all the techniques that allow...
