EF3 – Model-Based Imaging



Model-based geometry reconstruction from TEM images

Project Duration

01.01.2019 – 31.12.2021

Located at



We develop and analyze a novel concept for model-based geometry reconstruction of semiconductor quantum dots from imaging of bulk-like samples by transmission electron microscopy. The model includes the material composition and strain profile coupled to the propagation of the electron wave through the sample.
