Optical Near-field Electron Microscopy

Kick-off of the 'Optical Near-field Electron Microscopy' project

08.02.2021

In February, the official kick-off of our FET proactive project 'Optical Near-field Electron Microscopy (ONEM)' has taken place!

ONEM is new idea for a microscope that uses the best of two worlds: Non-damaging probing with light, and high resolution using an electron-based read-out. The envisioned technique is damage-free, requires no labels, and allows for a resolution on the nanometer scale.

The project got funded under Horizon 2020 and will run for four years. We are collaborating with the groups of Mariana Amaro (Czech Academy of Sciences) and Sense Jan v.d. Molen (Leiden University). We still have open positions.
