Speaker: Mr. Titas Pramanik
Electron Tomography: Reconstruction of 3D World.
Date & Time: Thursday 24th January, 2019 at 4.00 PM
Venue: SSCU AUDITORIUM
Modern day science and technology involves study of crystalline materials with defects and disorders as well as non-crystalline materials in lieu of perfect crystalline materials. Completely different approaches from routine crystallographic methods are needed to determinethe 3D atomic arrangement of these materials. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) uses two-dimensional (2D) projection images to produce images of crystal defects and dislocations at atomic resolution, however it does not fully represent the underlying 3D structures. The need to obtain higher dimensionality ‘structures’ using lower dimensionality data in different fields of physical and life sciences is necessitated by the advances made by electron tomography techniques in recent years. In this talk, I will discuss various 3D image reconstruction methods and the issues associated with electron tomography. The achievement of atomic resolution inthe 3D structure reconstruction of functional materials will also be addressed.
