AGH University of Science and Technology




The AGH University of Science and Technology  (AGH-UST) is one of the largest Polish universities and, accor­ding to national rankings, one of the country’s finest technical universities and a leader in the field of modern technology.

The main focus of the Center of Excellence  for Materials Characterization and Electron Microscopy of the AGH University of Science and Technology is the characterisation of material microstructure by means of transmission electron microscopy, accomplished by analytical nanocharacterisation, in particular electron diffraction (NBD, CBED), scanning-transmission electron microscopy (STEM) combined with energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS).

T he AGH TEM group has developed considerable interest in applying stereological methods and image/signal analysis for the quantification and modelling of material microstructures.

As a University group, we are strongly engaged in the teaching of undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students.
