Picometer metrology for light-element nanostructures: making every electron count

The ERC consolidator project Picometrics aims to characterize nanostructures in their native state using transmission electron microscopy; a prerequisite for understanding their properties. Through a combination of novel data-driven methods and the latest experimental capabilities, the goal is to locate and identify atoms, to detect light elements, to determine the three-dimensional ordering, and to measure the oxidation state from single low-dose recordings.
