Two scientists working at the Albert Crewe Centre

Albert Crewe Centre

Our goal is to advance new methods in electron microscopy, challenging the limits of spatial, temporal and energy resolution.

About the centre

The Albert Crewe Centre for Electron Microscopy is named in honour of one of the University of Liverpool’s most accomplished alumni. His work in the development of electron optics for the scanning electron microscope (SEM) and purpose-built scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) has led to the current state-of-the-art instrumentation used in many laboratories around the world. At the Albert Crewe Centre we are working to extend his legacy with a strategic focus on the development of new approaches to imaging atomic scale dynamics in SEM, STEM and FIB (focused ion beam).
