  • University of Antwerp - Electron Microscopy for Materials Science (EMAT)

    PhD position in the area of dose-efficient fusion of imaging and analytical techniques in scanning transmission electron microscopy
    Announcement date: 12 September 2019 - Deadline for application: 12 October 2019

    [show details]

    Description

    The EMAT research group at the department of Physics (University of Antwerp) and the STEM group at the department of Materials (University of Oxford) are seeking to fill one PhD position in the area of dose-efficient fusion of imaging and analytical techniques in scanning transmission electron microscopy under the supervision of Prof Sandra Van Aert (University of Antwerp) and Prof Peter D Nellist (University of Oxford). The main goal of this project is to realize a major breakthrough in the quantitative analysis of imaging and analytical techniques in scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM). Therefore, we will exploit the physics-based description of the fundamental processes of electron scattering and combine this with a thorough multivariate statistical analysis of the recorded signals. In this manner, we will be able to identify the chemical nature of all individual atoms in three dimensions. So far, imaging and analytical signals have mostly been analysed separately in STEM. Although analytical techniques are in principle well suited because of their elemental specificity, they have a much lower signal to noise ratio as compared to imaging techniques. We foresee that our multivariate method, in which new physics-based models are incorporated to describe the electron-object interaction, enables us to achieve element-specific atom counting at a local scale and to determine even the ordering of the atoms along the viewing direction. Furthermore, our approach will be optimized to reach high elemental measurement precision for a minimum incoming electron dose. This novel dose-efficient quantitative methodology will clearly usher electron microscopy in a new era of 3D element-specific metrology at the atomic scale and allow characterisation of beam-sensitive materials. This will exactly provide the input needed to understand the unique link between a material’s structure and its properties in both materials and in life sciences. Please find more and submit your application at http://nano.uantwerpen.be/jobs/2019/01/17/phd-position-in-the-area-of-dose-efficient-fusion-of-imaging-and-analytical-techniques-in-scanning-transmission-electron-microscopy/

  • LSME EPFL
    LAUSANNE, Switzerland
    Postdoc position
    Announcement date: 10 September 2019

    [show details]

    Description

    LSME EPFL is specialized in developing new approaches for quantitative analytical and structural electron microscopy. We work on the chemical characterization of complex artificial minerals including trace elements by means of STEM EELS and EDX; 3D analysis of dislocation and quantitative high resolution STEM analysis of ferroelectric perovskites. 

    The subject of this post doc will be twofold : 

    -      Explore new approaches for hyperspectral STEM-EDX data decomposition, using contextual prior knowledge (number of phases in presence, existence of regions of pure phase, specificities of the composition of phases, etc) into a guided/supervised learning process, rather than a full unsupervised learning. 

    -      Explore the necessary actions to put in place in order to make the data comply with the requirement of FAIR data. Especially working on the required metadata that need to be attached to the data for a correct documentation. This last part will be carried out in close collaboration with international groups  (in France, Germany, Ireland, US… interested in the same subject)

    Requirements

    Successful applicants should have experience in TEM operation and / or TEM data handling, as well as programming experience (python). We require good communication skills and the ability to work in collaboration with large consortium.

    Correlative atom probe tomography and analytical electron tomography: A path towards the ultimate 3D characterization with sub-nanometric resolution
    Announcement date: 04 September 2019

    [show details]

    Description

    We are currently looking for a postdoctoral researcherto developaPython-based framework for 3D data fusionof Atom probe tomography (APT) and analytical electron tomography (AET) signals. These techniques areexcellent tools for 3D characterization of nanomaterials. However, there is a great interest in combining results obtained with these two techniques, as they are complementary in many ways: for example, AET provides 3D analysis of larger fields of views with higher spatial fidelity than APT, but has more limited spatial resolution and composition sensitivity.

    After developing a framework to combine information from both APT and AET technics in a single ‘ultimate’ volume, based of existing in-house codes for registration/calibration of APT reconstruction with classical electron micrograph. The extend goal in this project is to make a further step forward applying this framework to multiphase materials, where resulted APT volumes are strongly distorted.  Sampling schemes, denoising approaches and registration methods will be implemented in order to tackle these tasks. To our knowledge, this was rarely done before and could allow better understanding of the local distortion and then proposing novel robust reconstruction algorithm and potentially correcting the local atom mixing. 

    The successful applicant will be mainly based in CEA Saclay (located at 20 km south-west of Paris) with frequent visits to CEA Grenoble.
