Research Interests

Klaus van Benthem is interested in the investigation of the functionalities of novel nano-materials. He uses electron microscopy tools to image nano-materials with atomic resolution and correlate their morphologies and atomic structures with nano-scale and macro-scale physical properties. His interests are also in the development of new strategies to investigate materials under more realistic environmental conditions, such as gas phases, liquids, electrical and mechanical fields, etc. His overall vision is the characterization of functional materials with atomic resolution under their anticipated working conditions, i.e., "at work".
