The Kourkoutis electron microscopy group developed and applied novel electron microscopy techniques to advance the fundamental understanding of materials and devices. Central to all of these efforts was the scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM), a tool that allowed the group to probe structural, chemical and electronic properties at the atomic scale.
