xxxx Title

Electron tomography is a way of reconstructing the three dimensional (3D) structure of a specimen from a series of two dimensional (2D) micrographs taken at different tilts. Electron tomography is well developed in the biosciences where it has been used since the late 60's to examine the 3D structure of macromolecules. In the physical sciences however little use has been made of this technique. The 'Electron Tomography Project' is working to expand it's use in the Physical sciences by applying alternative imaging techniques, improved data acquisition, advanced microscope hardware and powerful visualisation software to a range of materials systems. This page covers the major areas of research, example applications, useful references and contact details for those working in the project.
