Even though there is not enough snow surrounding us in nature, we at least have an image that reminds us of snowflakes. These “snowflakes” are dendritic silver patches synthesized in the group of Prof. Robin Klupp Taylor, Institute of Particle Technology. The image was acquired using the scanning t...

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We are looking forward to sharing our calendar 2023 with you online. Every month a fascinating microscopy image will be revealed reflecting the research of CENEM and IMN. The cover picture shows an electron diffraction image of TiS2, a layere...

Our CENEM nanowire experts Dr. Lilian Vogl, Dr. Peter Schweizer (now both at EMPA, Thun Switzerland), and Peter Denninger from the Institute of Micro- and Nanostructure Research headed by Prof. Spiecker recently published their work about gold nanowires provided by Gunther Richter from the Max Planc...

A special scientific event, the “ZEISS On Your Campus Truck Tour 2022”, will make a stop in Erlangen at IZNF on 03.-04. of November 2022. Zeiss will set up a showroom next to IZNF building and Zeiss experts offer individual live demonstrations on-site or remote sessions for various microscopic ...

We warmly welcome Prof. Philipp Pelz, who started his professorship for Computational Materials Microscopy at CENEM & IMN in August this year.   Before joining CENEM & IMN, he was a postdoctoral researcher working on computational electron microscopy with Prof. Mary Scott in the M...

We are proud that the Alumni Symposium & Reunion of AG Electron Microscopy & Institute of Micro- and Nanostructure Research took place on 24th June 2022 and that so many alumni participated and made it a memorable event. Erdmann Spiecker and Mingjian Wu presented 14 years of Materials Micros...

Crystals are not necessarily hard and resistant but also occur in soft matter when weakly bound molecules arrange in a regular order. Such organic crystals are widespread in pharmaceuticals products, but also occur as tiny nanocrystals in the active layer of organic solar cells. Here, the organic na...

We are proud to announce that our new transmission electron microscope (TEM) Thermo Fisher Scientific (TFS) Spectra 200 is now open for user access within the user facility of CENEM. The state-of-the-art TFS Spectra 200 provides high-resolution imaging (probe-corrector for STEM imaging) down to the...
