Transmission electron microscopy (TEM)

TEM Gemini Centre

TEM Gemini Centre is working within the fields of Materials Physics, Materials Science and Metallurgy. We are studying a broad range of materials on the atomic level. The main tool is the transmission electron microscope (TEM).

The research team consists of professors, postdocs, students and engineers at Department of Physics and Department of Materials Science and Engineering (NTNU), and researchers at Nanotechnology and materials (SINTEF).

TEM Gemini Centre News and Events

Master/ Project/Diploma topics within the TEM group, fall 2015

 

The TEM Gemini Centre is happy to present a varied selection of master/project/diploma topics within TEM for 2015/2016. The topics range from nanomaterials for solar cell applications to light metal alloy design, and can be designed to fit the wishes of the student - from the heavily experimental ones to purely simulations and programming. Common for all of them are support from a large TEM community, contribution to real and interesting scientific work and use of (data from) the new NORTEM instruments. Feel free to get in touch with us to hear more about the possibilities!


Welcome to Julie S Nilsen

 

We would like to welcome Julie S Nilsen as a PhD student in the TEM group, where she will be working on low cost, ultra-high efficiency graphene/nanowire solar cells under the supervision of Ton van Helvoort.


PhD defence Jon Holmestad

Congratulation to Jon Holmestad for the defence of his thesis entitled "(Scanning) Transmission Electron Microscopy Studies of Grain Boundary Segregation relevant to Intergranular Corrosion in Al-Mg-Si-Cu Alloys" on January 30th, 2015!


3rd Announcement of support for seed projects and competence building within NORTEM

 

The 3rd application round of support for seed projects and competence building within NORTEM is now announced! The deadline for submitting proposals is 15.04.2015. More information, the announcement and application form for can also be found on the official NORTEM homepages.


TEM Gemini news

  • 08/05: The TEM Gemini Centre Annual report 2014 is now available.

  • 10/03: We are pleased to announce the 3rd round of support for seed projects and competence building within NORTEM! See the official NORTEM webpage for more information.

  • 10/03: We proudly announce a variety of topics within TEM for master, diploma and project students fall 2015, and welcome all interested physics, materials science and nanotechnology students to talk to us about possibilities.

  • 03/02: We continue our lunch meetings on Fridays at 12.15, D4-143. All are welcome!

  • 21/11: The TEM Gemini Centre is involved in as much as three of the newly awarded SFIs (Centres for Research-based Innovation)! John Walmsley is a part of iCSI, Per Erik Vullum is a part of Sustainable Innovations for Automated Manufacturing of Multi-Material Products, and Randi Holmestad is a part of CASA. See more on this on the research council webpage.

  • October 2014: The double corrected JEOL ARM is now in use for a year. In that time a solid user group  has been established who can reproduce the impressive performance from the acceptance test. Results from this ARM200F and related to NORTEM's focus areas have been published in high-ranking journals such as (Nature) Scientific Reports and Nano letters.
