Major Honour for Max Haider *27.05.2020

Max Haider has been awarded with the Kavli Prize 2020 in Nanoscience together with Harald Rose, Knut Urban und Ondrej Krivanek. In the announcement ceremony on May 28th 28.5.20 their pioneering work to enable humanity to see the structure and chemical composition of materials in three dimensions on unprecedentedly short length scales was honoured. Find more information on the website of the Kavli Foundation.

Janis Köster receives Harald Rose Prize 2019 *5.08.2019

As part of the ceremony marking the 52nd anniversary of the University of Ulm, Janis Köster received the Harald Rose Prize 2019. The university wrote on its website: "The 3000 Euro Harald Rose Prize went to Janis Köster. The young scientist studied defects in a two-dimensional material using high-resolution electron microscopy and carried out accompanying calculations. His Master's thesis, which he performed in the Electron Microscopy Group of Materials Science, lead directly to several publications. The prize is named after a pioneer in electron microscopy, Professor Harald Rose, who holds a senior professorship at the University of Ulm." One of these publications can be viewed under Electron-Beam-Driven Structure Evolution of Single-Layer MoTe2 for Quantum Devices . You can read a full press release by the SALVE team there.

Member of the Class 2019 Fellows of the Microscopy Society of America *21.03.2019

Max. Haider has been selected as member of the Class 2019 Fellows of the Microscopy Society of America "For his contributions to making aberration correction a reality for electron microscopes" as they state in their press release.

Tenth International Conference on Charged Particle Optics

CEOS has recently presented first results about its newly developed imaging energy filter (CEFID -- CEOS Energy-Filtering and Imaging Device) at the CPO 10 conference at Key West. The talk of Dr. Frank Kahl (CEOS GmbH) can be downloaded from

Mechanisms of lithium transport

The SALVE team has identified mechanisms of lithium transport within a "nanobattery" consisting of graphen and lithium. The results are published in Nature.

Magnetic circular dichroism imaged with the PICO instrument

Zechao Wang reports about an imaging application, which only became possible in this way by using the chromatically corrected PICO microscope. You can find the paper here and also in our literature list together with DOI- and BibTex-entries.

Magnetic field observations in the aberration corrected megavolt microscope.

High-precision observations of the magnetic phase in CoFeB/Ta have been performed in the only aberration corrected megavolt microscope in the world. The paper was published in Nature Scientific Reports and is also listed in our liteature list.

SALVE inauguration at Ulm University.

After succesfull completion of the development of a Cc/Cs-corrected low voltage electron microscope within the SALVE the instrument has been moved to Ulm University. An inauguration celebration is planned during the 3rd SALVE symposium on December 12th to 14th. A press release issued after the acceptance of the instrument describes the new unique features of this microscope.

Maximilian Trapp receives Harald Rose Prize 2017. *16.11.2017

During the ceremony Ausgezeichnet! Maximilina Trapp was awarded with this year's Harald Rose Prize for his master thesis "TEM investigation of CuMn2O4 spinel catalyst upon reduction and subsequent reoxidation".
