Dr Emanuela Liberti


Post Doctoral Research Assistant

Emanuela joined the Department of Materials in Oxford in September 2013 under the ESTEEM EU fp7 program. Her research activity involves the development of methods for the quantification and interpretation of aberration-corrected transmission electron microscopy images, using techniques such as focal and tilt series recovery of the specimen exit wave function, and imaging simulations. Her primary interests include understanding the structure-property relationship of new, and conventional materials, through the quantitative analysis of the complex exit wave function. Her favourite materials range from two-dimensional specimens, such as graphene, to metal-oxide nano structures, and semiconductor bulk specimens.

Emanuela completed her PhD in Materials at Imperial College London in 2013. During her PhD, she worked on the characterisation of titanium dioxide novel nano structures, including nano platelets and nano rods, using aberration-corrected TEM and exit wave restoration, as well as a combination of scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) and electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS).
