Ernst Ruska-Centre (ER-C) for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons

With the foundation of the Ernst Ruska-Centre (ER-C), Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University have established a centre of excellence for atomic-resolution electron microscopy and spectroscopy on the highest international level.

ER-C develops scientific and technical infrastructure and methods for materials research for today and tomorrow, and is simultaneously the first national user centre for ultrahigh-resolution electron microscopy.

It represents a partner for the electron optics industry, which markets ER-C products under licence, and it is a leading international institution in the field of research in the subnanometre range. ER-C provides researchers from science and industry with access to the most powerful electron microscopes currently available and guarantees competent assistance.
