Our research addresses grand challenges in nanoscience and nanotechnology and advances the division’s scientific user facility mission.

We also explore ways to tailor and control this behavior by fabricating hybrid nanomaterials that harness different functionalities to create complex nanoarchitectures.

Our visualization efforts encompass a number of techniques including transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), force microscopy, and X-ray microscopy to explore structure, composition, chemistry and physical behavior at the nanoscale through the use of spectroscopy, imaging and diffraction. We aim to use multimodal visualization, in which we employ a variety of techniques to address a single scientific challenge, and we are developing new techniques that enable visualization at the nanoscale in three dimensions.
