Welcome to the Nanoscale Physics Group at the University of Illinois at Chicago!
The Nanoscale Physics Group is the research group of Professor Robert F. Klie. Our research interests are focused on the structure-property relationships of defects and interfaces in nano-scale materials, such as Li iron battery materials, magnetic oxides, superconducting oxides and borides,structural ceramic, and heterogeneous nano-catalysts, as well as structures and reations of sample in liquid.
Our analytic techniques include atomic-resolution imaging and spectroscopy in a Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM), Z-contrast imaging, and high energy-resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS). Our instruments are housed in the Research Resources Center (RRC) at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and include the aberration-corrected JEOL ARM-200CF TEM/STEM, the JEOL JEM3010, and the aberration-corrected VG HB-601UX.
