Research Activities

Kim Kisslinger is an advanced associate TEM technical staff member in the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Kim has over 12 years of experience in the semiconductor industry (most recently with Intel Corp) as a Transmission Electron Microscopy associate producing TEM samples and performing TEM/STEM/SEM analysis. Kim's primary responsibility at CFN is to provide the principal point of contact for the FEI F200X Talos TEM/STEM and  conduct ultrathin electron-transparent sample preparation using a variety of mechanical and non-mechanical thinning methods, including dual beam FIB/SEM in-situ lift-out (lamella and tomography samples), tripod polishing, dimpling, jet etching and, ion-milling techniques in support of users and scientific staff. Kim is also in charge of maintaining and managing the TEM preparation laboratories at CFN.
