Director's Note

Welcome to the NanoCenter Hot Papers Newsletter. Every six months, this newsletter rounds up the most interesting and significant papers that include work done in the NanoCenter's AIM Lab or Fab Lab.

Each issue features a type of NanoCenter instrument in order to showcase its capabilities. The workhorse of any scientific institution, electron microscopes can be customized to provide various views of a material, including by XRD and XPS measurements and in-situ visualizations. Almost all of our publications this semester relied on electron microscopy and its technologies to pick out salient features in experimental materials. If you think these instruments can be useful to you, please contact the NanoCenter or myself.

Very truly,

Sang Bok Lee

Director, NanoCenter
