EPSRC National Research Facility for Advanced Electron Microscopy

 Latest News:

is the EPSRC National Research Facility for Advanced Electron Microscopy. It supports a wide variety of multi-disciplinary research by providing access to cutting-edge instrumentation, state-of-the-art data analysis as well as expertise and training in electron microscopy.

A collection of case studies and a description of some of our on-going projects will give you an insight into the diversity of research areas supported by SuperSTEM.

Access to SuperSTEM is open to UK academics and their collaborators within the world-wide scientific community. Commercial and proprietary research access is welcome, subject to funding.

The principal location of the facility is a purpose-built low-vibration laboratory on the SciTech  Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus. The facility is embedded within the UK academic community through a consortium of universities, led by the University of Leeds and joined by the Universities of Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, Oxford and York. 

Our own research or research carried out in collaboration with other institutions ranges from fields as diverse as metallurgy, photovoltaic semi-conductors, themoelectric oxides, catalysis for clear air technology, soft matter as well as microscopy instrumentation and technique development.
