Exploring the limits of physical resolution in advanced electron microscopy and understanding the ultimate behavior of materials at the nanoscale and their related properties are the central aims of our research. Main research lines:
1) Single atom recognition and localization in embedded quantum and nanostructures. From the atomic resolution data we obtain in the aberration corrected electron microscopes we create 3D atomic models of the nanosystems studied to get full knowledge on their growth mechanisms.
2) Direct correlation between the structure and elemental composition at the atomic scale and the physical properties at sub-nanometer scale: study of the photonic, plasmonic and phononic properties of the nanomaterials, correlated to simulated theoretical models.
3) Development of in-situ / in-operando experiments in the TEM to understand the physical and chemical phenomena promoting energy mechansims, correlating theoretical models with
