Dr. Ondrej L. Krivanek, FRS, is a co-founder and president of Nion Co, and Affiliate Professor at Arizona State University. He has a Ph.D. from Cambridge University, and he is well known for developing, in the 1980s and 90s, new instruments for electron microscopy including parallel detection electron energy loss spectrometers, imaging filters, CCD cameras, and software such as Gatan’s DigitalMicrograph. More recently, he has led the development of the first successful STEM aberration corrector, a whole new 200 keV electron microscope, a monochromator and EEL spectrometer that have established many new energy resolution records, and open source software for electron microscopy (Swift). He is also well known for applying the new instruments to key materials problems.
Dr. Ian MacLaren, University of Glasgow
Dr. Ian MacLaren is Reader in Physics at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. He obtained his B.Sc. in Physics and Ph.D. in Metallurgy and Materials from University of Birmingham. His research is principally concerned with using electron microscopy to study the structure and chemistry of materials and devices at the nanoscale. Current research mainly uses either: Quantitative electron energy loss spectroscopy including DualEELS and ultra-high energy loss spectroscopy and/or scanned diffraction and 4D-STEM using fast, pixelated, direct electron detectors.These techniques are applied to a wide range of topics and materials including functional oxides, high-strength steels, optical coatings for high precision interferometry, infrared semiconductor devices, and mineral alteration in terrestrial and extraterrestrial processes.
Professor Jian-Min Zuo, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Jian-Min Zuo received his Ph.D. in Physics from Arizona State University in 1989. He then took a three-year postdoctoral fellowship at the National Science Foundation center for high resolution electron microscopy and the Physics department at ASU. During this time he co-authored a book on electron microdiffraction with John Spence. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Illinois, he was a research scientist in Physics at ASU and a visiting scientist to a number of universities and institutes in Germany, Japan and Norway. His research during this period focused on the development of quantitative electron diffraction techniques and study of crystal electron density and bonding. At Illinois, Prof. Zuo has developed research programs focused on structure and property relationships in a range of materials, including metal nanoparticles, semiconductors, electroceramics, oxide interfaces, and nanotubes. He also has developed an ultrafast electron diffraction facility and atomic resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy and electron energy loss spectroscopy using the aberration corrected electron microscope at the Center for Microanalysis of Materials. He has published more than 140 papers in scientific journals and several invited book chapters on electron diffraction and diffractive imaging.
