Introduction - research activity

  Nano structures should be characterized for the developments of advanced materials. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is an effective tool for crystal structure analysis, elemental/chemical bonding analysis and magnetic domain structure analysis with high spatial resolution. One of our targets is to develop/improve various advanced electron microscopy; scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM), electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS), energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDXS) and Lorentz microscopy. We also apply the advanced microscopy for various materials, e.g., metals, ceramics, semiconductors, collaborating with material scientists in research institutes/companies.

The earthquake on March 11 was the '6-lower' of Japanese seismic scale in Tsukuba city, which was rather large (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan_Meteorological_Agency_seismic_intensity_scale). Fortunately our colleagues are all safe. Our microscopes, however, are seriously damaged. Now we are trying to repair the damaged microscopes.
