Nowadays, one of the modern materials research lines is focused on relation between inner structure and physical properties of metallic glasses as well as nanocrystaline metallic alloys prepared by primary crystallization of its amorphous precursors. Revealing the structure details of prepared materials employing electron microscopy is therefore a basic prerequisite for accomplish of the research intent that is carried out in the laboratory. In the very near future, research interest of laboratory group will be extended to others non-conventional materials (eg. high-entropy alloys, biodegradable materials, thin films or powder materials) with a promising perspective of practical applications.
Laboratory equipment enables materials analysis in both, real and reciprocal space, by means of electron beam of different energies. Post-processing and analysis of acquired data, with strong orientation on electron diffraction, are emphasized.
