Field of research
Our group is working on problems of solid state chemistry and materials science mainly applying modern methods of
transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The available methods allow insights to new and long standing unsolved
questions such as atomistic structure of poorly crystallised or amorphous products, structure and defects of real
crystals, interfaces in solids as well as phase transformations and nucleation of solids.
Materials and material systems are synthesised by the group predominantly by chemical routes. The characterisation
of the material is performed with most modern instrumentation using the complete variety of TEM methods. In our
interdisciplinary group chemists and physicists fruitfully collaborate at materials related thematic subjects and
TEM-related methodical topics.
