Atom-by-atom analysis of advanced semiconductor devices: unraveling the physics of atom probe tomography KU Leuven
This dissertation will begin with a general background introduction of atom probe tomography and the urgent needs and applications of atom probe tomography due to current metrology challenges induced by both the shrinkage and the architecture change (from planar to 3D structures) of next-generation semiconductor devices. The objective of this PhD study is to develop the experimental, theoretical and fundamental insight in Atomprobe Tomography ...

Laser-assisted atom probe tomography of oxide materials: Field evaporation mechanism study and performance improvement KU Leuven
Ternary/doped oxides that exhibit electronic/ionic conductivity are essential for a wide range of applications, e.g. as transparent conductors in photovoltaics and flexible electronics, or as an ion conducting solid electrolyte for Li ion batteries. The electronic/ionic conductivity of these oxides is determined by structural properties at the atomic scale. Therefore, atomic scale control during synthesis and atomic scale characterization of ...
A new era of virtual histology: novel contrast agents for 3D multi-tissue imaging using contrast-enhanced computed tomography KU Leuven
Biological tissues have a spatial heterogeneity. Thus, 2D measurements like histomorphometry only partially reveal their full 3D morphology. We propose contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CE-CT) for 3D structural quantification of biological tissues and 3D immunological imaging. Previously, we explored commercially available and in-house synthesized contrast agents (polyoxometalates - POMs). In this project, as pioneers in the field, we ...
