About the TEM Gemini Centre

About the TEM Gemini Centre

The transmission electron microscopy activity in Trondheim is centered around the TEM Gemini Centre. Our research extends through various fields of solid state physics and materials technology, from cooperation with industry on aluminum to third generation solar cells and nanomaterials.

The overall objective of the TEM Gemini Centre is to build and secure a robust scientific TEM environment with high international profile as basis for growth for the Centre itself, NTNU, SINTEF and academic and industrial partners.

TEM Gemini Centre was established in 2006 and consists of professors, engineers, postdoctoral fellows, doctoral candidates and students at the Department of Physics (IFY) and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (IMT) together with research scientist on TEM at SINTEF Materials and Chemistry. In 2019 we are 3.4 professors, 3 engineers, 5 SINTEF researchers, 1 postdoctoral fellow, 10 PhD candidates and several master students with TEM as their main activity.

We have in total four TEM instruments, ranging from a double-corrected JEOL ARM installed 2013 to conventional LaB6 all-round instruments.

ESTEEM3

ESTEEM3

ESTEEM3 – Enabling Science and Technology through European Electron Microscopy – is an EU funded project for electron microscopy, which aims at providing access to the leading European state-of-the-art electron microscopy research infrastructures, facilitating and extending transnational access services of the most powerful atomic scale characterization techniques in advanced electron microscopy research to a wide range of academic and industrial research communities for the analysis and engineering of novel materials in physical, chemical and biological sciences.

Here you can find more details about access through ESTEEM3 and an application form.

 

Gemini Centres

The Gemini centres at NTNU

Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), SINTEF and the University of Oslo (UiO) have established the Gemini Centres.

The objective of the Gemini Centres is to develop large scientific groups of higher quality than either of the partners could manage to build up on their own. There is an international demand for first-class scientific groups from both project sponsors and students. For this reason, the Gemini Centres have adopted the following vision: Together for International Excellence.

 

NORTEM

NORTEM

The TEM Gemini Centre is a part of the Norwegian Centre for Transmission Electron Microscopy (NORTEM)a nationally coordinated initiative by the two leading Norwegian TEM groups within the physical sciences. The NORTEM consortium offers access to Norwegian and international researchers seeking to apply state-of-the-art TEM techniques to answer the materials challenges of today and the future.
