SuperSTEM: the EPSRC National Facility for Aberration Corrected STEM





SuperSTEM User Survey!

Thanks to everyone who took the time to complete the survey.  We will post a full summary of your views here shortly.  Generally you were very supportive of our work to date and of the additional aspects regarding sample preparation, data processing and modelling that we asked about.

Your views were briefly summarised and included in the Statement of Need we submitted to EPSRC on 15 October for the continuation of a Mid-Range Facility for Aberration-Corrected STEM from 2016 - 2021.

 Latest News: 


SuperSTEM is the EPSRC National Facility for Aberration-Corrected Scanning Transmission 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.

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 SuperSTEM academic consortium is led by the University of Leeds and joined by the Universities of Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and Oxford. The principal location of the facility is a purpose-built low-vibration laboratory on the STFC Daresbury Campus, with access when required to complementary instrumentation at the consortium or partner universities for specific applications.





Our own research or research carried out in collaboration with other institutions ranges from fields as diverse as metal physics, semiconductors, oxides, ceramics, catalysis and biology to theory as well as microscopy techniques development.
