Our Services

Industry Services
With a continuing tradition of excellence, we are trying to bridge the gap between academic research and pratical problem solving as well as industrial needs.

European EELS & EFTEM School
The joint FELMI/European EELS & EFTEM School is an intense 4-day hands-on laboratory workshop that will take you step-by-step through the acquisition and analysis of Energy Filtered TEM (EFTEM) and STEM-EELS data. The workshop will utilize the state of the art facilities at FELMI-ZFE including a monochromated probe-corrected Titan (S)TEM with a DualEELS GIF Quantum EELS system.

Three-dimensional distribution of individual atoms in the channels of beryl Paper

Three-dimensional distribution of individual atoms in the channels of beryl

Three-dimensional distribution of individual atoms in the channels of beryl Daniel Knez, Christian Gspan, Nikola Šimić, Stefan Mitsche, Harald Fitzek, Karl Gatterer, Helmar Wiltsche, Gerald Kothleitner, Werner Grogger & Ferdinand Hofer Communications Materials volume 5, Article number: 19 (2024) Cite this article Abstract Single atom detection in nanoporous materials is a significant challenge, particularly due to their sensitivity to electron irradiation. Here, natural beryl (Be3Al2Si6O18) is used as a model system to quantitatively analyse the occupancy of its atomic channels. High-angle annular dark-field imaging in a scanning…

Spectral Tuning of Plasmonic Activity in 3D Nanostructures via High-Precision Nano-Printing Paper

Spectral Tuning of Plasmonic Activity in 3D Nanostructures via High-Precision Nano-Printing

Spectral Tuning of Plasmonic Activity in 3D Nanostructures via High-Precision Nano-Printing Content In this study we have successfully demonstrated that planar and 3-dimensional plasmonically active gold nanostructures can be reliably produced via FEBID and fine-tuned to generate resonances at desired wavelengths and spatial positions.

ASTEM – The Story Behind General

ASTEM – The Story Behind

Being able to see and analyse materials at atomic resolution, has been a strong motivation for improving the electron microscope. However, the resolution of the conventional transmission electron microscope (TEM) was limited to around 0.2 nanometre, which is slightly larger than the diameter of atoms.
