Dr. Yazdi’s research interests include developing novel electron microscopy techniques for exploring the links between the underlying atomic arrangements of energy-related materials and their performance, properties, and synthesis. To characterize nanostructures at atomic levels, Sadegh uses advanced electron microscopy techniques such as aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy (AC-STEM), low-voltage and monochromated high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), off-axis electron holography (OAEH), monochromated electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS), electron tomography (ET), and a wide range of in-situ electron microscopy techniques.
MSEN 5430 - Transmission Electron Microscopy in Materials Science & Engineering
Fall 2021 / Fall 2022 / Fall 2023
This course provides a comprehensive introduction to transmission electron microscopy (TEM) as a powerful characterization tool in materials science. It is aimed at beginners and intermediate users of TEM and covers both the theoretical and practical aspects of advanced electron microscopy techniques. By taking this course, students will be able to interpret and analyze TEM data and understand electron microscopy publications. Students will learn the necessary theoretical basis for taking practical training on modern aberration-corrected TEMs. Previously offered as a special topics course. Recommended Prerequisite: Experience on electron microscopy is recommended but not necessary.
MSEN 5919 - Special Topics in MSE
Fall 2019 / Fall 2020
