Welcome to Multi-Dimensional Atomic Imaging Lab (MDAIL)!


With the recent development of x-ray and electron imaging techniques along with the advancement in computing power and algorithms, now we are at the stage of actually "seeing" the individual atoms within materials. Utilizing the newly developed techniques including atomic electron tomography (AET) and crystal truncation rod (CTR) based surface x-ray diffraction (SXRD), MDAIL works at the frontiers of the rapidly evolving field of atomic scale x-ray and electron imaging, not only in full three-dimensional structural details, but also in additional dimensions of time and temperature, etc. Please visit our "Research" page for more details.
