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 Department of Materials and Nanotechnology (SINTEF).

TEM Gemini news

  • 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.

  • This fall our weekly lunch meetings will be held on Fridays 12.15 in D4-143. All are welcome!

  • 24/09: Congratulations to Astrid Marie for her PhD degree!
  • 09/07: Have you still not decided on a project/master work for fall 2014? We still have some available projects!
  • 30/06: Announcement of Seed Projects fall 2014. More information and application form
  • 30/06: Announcement of PhD-course FY8102 Electron microscopy and diffraction fall 2014
  • 26/06: Annual report (new style) 2013 is published.
  • 15/06: ICAA 2014 in Trondheim with many contributions from the TEM Gemini Center.
  • 13/06: Congratulations to Takeshi Saito for sucessfully defending his PhD work.
