Research Activities

I specialize in the development and application of ultrafast electron microscopy (UEM).  This techniques implements the principles of stroboscopic spectroscopy into a transmission electron microscope.  Currently I am workign on a laser-free technique which is capable of accesssing temporal domains as small as tens of picoseconds.
