Structural characterization of quantum dot superlattice by electron tomography

By IMRI Staff | September 2, 2020
Posted in

This study used the GrandARM to make a tomogram of a 3D quantum dot superlattice film. It’s state-of-the-art tomography using a full-tilt needle sample, with 0.65 nm resolution over a very large volume of 4.3 x 105 nm3. Title: Structural characterization of a polycrystalline epitaxially-fused colloidal quantum dot superlattice by electron tomography Abstract: Three dimensional…
