The Institute for Functional Imaging of Materials (IFIM) is an institute founded towards solving materials science challenges, by bridging the divide between advances in computation and data analysis, with the wealth of structural and imaging data being acquired through microscopy and scattering techniques. We aim to link researches in the different fields of materials science, physics and chemistry with computational scientists and applied mathematicians, fostering collaborations and developing tools to assist the wider research community.

Fire up the atom forge

Electron microscopyElectron microscopy is on the brink of a transition. Soon the imaging tool could be used to create structures atom by atom. This sort of control over atomic architecture could transform our basic scientific understanding of materials and pave the way to new classes of devices for quantum computing, spin sensing and more.
