The Ultrafast Physics Group in conjunction with RRC-E are developing an Ultrafast Electron Microscope. This instrument aims to combine the high spatial resolution of electron microscopy with the ultrafast (sub-picosecond) time resolution possible using ultrashort pulse laser systems.

At present most work has centered on the development of the ultrafast electron source, eventually this will be mated to the bottom half of an existing TEM and made available to researchers at UIC.

Technical Specifications

The aim of this project is to develop a functional prototype UEM with a space time resolution of less than 1nm-ps.
