The Institute for Advanced Electron Microscopy (IAEM) was launched in fall 2006 by the current Brookhaven National Laboratory Director, Doon Gibbs. The purpose of the institute is to facilitate the electron microscopy activities at various departments, including Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science Department, Center for Functional Nanomaterials, and Department of Biology, at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Major goals of the institute are to explore the forefront of the electron microscopy research fields, host visitors, organize seminars and workshops, promote scientific exchange, and foster internal and external collaborations. Our aspiration is to take full advantage of our state-of-the- art electron microscopy and scattering facilities and wide range of expertise across different groups from core research to user assistance.
