Spatially Resolved Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy: Nanoscale Dynamic Response from Phonons to Core Excitations
Professor Philip E. Batson
The University of New Jersey, Piscataway NJ
Location: Marcus Building, Room 1117

Many recent studies have been enabled by the Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope, (STEM) that can produce an Angstrom-sized probe of keV electrons to access both bulk, surface and "aloof" excitations within structures ranging from atomic to molecular to nanoscale in size. I will discuss a little history, some surprising results from my involvment in the field, and speculate on the future potential for this technique.
