Advanced Microscopy Research Environment (ADMIRE)

is a cross-scientific graduate school focused on microscopy and micro imaging. Microscopy methods have developed with an increasing rate in the last few decades and have become the foundation for much of modern research in physics, chemistry, materials science, biology and science. The number of microscopy techniques has increased almost exponentially; often a new method has been developed based on a precise problem faced by a researcher in a particular field. ADMIRE focuses on microscopy spanning across a number of research fields, since a lot of modern and future science will depend on already existing and newly developed microscopy methods.

Annual Image Contest 2015 Winning Image

The winner of the annual image contest 2015 is Mohammad Karimi from solid state physics with his contribution “Lipstick like colorized nanowires with SiO2 on sidewalls and exposed tips of nanowires after etching SiO2". Let us all congratulate him! For more contributions see microscopy image of the year 2015.

Advanced X-ray Microscopy (March 14 - May 20, 2017)

Imaging with synchrotron light - an X-ray vision for materials science 7.5c

This course is open to Ph.D students in the natural sciences or associated engineering and has no specific requirements for physics or mathematics background. The aim is to bring young scientists into the world of x-ray microscopy. X-ray imaging allows us to ‘see inside’ materials, important to both biological processes and to condensed matter physics or chemistry. It can provide a remarkable degree of sensitivity, such as to chemical composition, morphology, crystalline structure, strain in nanomaterials or even magnetic properties.  The teaching will provide an overview of the state of the art of x-ray imaging techniques at the forefront of today’s materials science research. The students will learn how x-ray imaging techniques will be further advanced by the arrival of MAX IV in Lund – a world first in a new generation of ‘supercharged’ synchrotron designs, that will explore materials with ultra-small and high intensity coherent x-ray beams. The lectures will also discuss complementary advances in neutron based microscopy methods, made possible by the development of the ESS in Lund - the world’s most powerful source of neutrons.
