CNRS Toulouse - France


The CEMES (Centre d'Elaboration des Matériaux et d'Etudes Structurales) laboratory is a major institute of the CNRS which has been pioneering in Electron Microscopy since the 50's. It covers now a wide range of scientific activities aimed at the manufacturing, the understanding, the modeling and the manipulation of matter at the atomic scale.

The research interest of the 67 permanent researchers (20 of them being TEM experts) covers: mechanical properties of metallic alloys, strained semi-conductors, physical properties of magnetic nanostructures, oxide and metallic thin films, atomic organization of metallic or semiconducting nanoparticles, carbon based materials and liquid crystals. These scientists have developed expertise in advanced TEM methods including: Electron holography, Quantitative HRTEM analysis, In-situ straining, Fine structure determination in EELS measurements, Quantitative Convergent Beam Electron Diffraction, Image processing and simulation.
