Advanced EUV/soft X-ray microscopy in the ultrafast regime: imaging functionality of nanomaterials across length scales

September 4, 2019

Giulia Mancini, Majed Chergui's group, EPFL, has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant for her project entitled 'Advanced EUV/soft X-ray microscopy in the ultrafast regime: imaging functionality of nanomaterials across length scales' (ULTRAIMAGE). ULTRAIMAGE tackles the need for novel strategies in the characterization of functional nanomaterials, through the study of their fundamental structure-property relationships. Key to this advance is the development of innovative imaging modalities, which combine ultrahigh resolution in both time and space. The insights from the research will enable a better understanding of fundamental nanoscale behaviour, vital to a better design of energy-efficient next generation devices. The grant awarded is € 1'894'577.

In addition, Guilia Mancini has been awarded the VIDI grant (800,000 euros) from the Dutch Research Council. She will move to the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials (RUG), University of Groningen, in the Netherlands for her professorship.
