Nano-Characterization Group
Research Strategy
 Our group is devoted to structural analysis of carbon clusters by means of transmission electron microscopy (TEM). In order to visualize the individual molecules including the carbon clusters by TEM, a dedicated TEM capable for imaging with high resolution, high sensitivity and high time-resolution is indispensable. Also a low dose system is definitively required to minimize the electron-induced beam damage during the TEM observation. Development of electron spectroscopy is also crucial to realize the chemical analysis and chemical state analysis on a single-molecular basis.
