Welcome to the SIMDALEE2 WIKI

SIMDALEE2 is a research and training network dedicated to the investigation of low energy electrons near solid surfaces. SIMDALEE2- Sources, Interaction with Matter, Detection and Analysis of Low Energy Electrons is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) financed by the European Commission
(grant number 606988 under the FP7-PEOPLE-2013-ITN action of the EC).

The purpose of the SIMDALEE2 (Sources, Interaction with Matter, Detection and Analysis of Low Energy Electrons) network is to establish a world-class research training platform for the science and technology of nanoscale manipulation and analysis using low energy electrons. Apart from an effective and well-structured training programme, the network will pursue the following scientific goals:

  1. Optimizing beam size by correlating contemporary field emission (FE) theory with high resolution holographic measurements of magnetic and electric fields of FE tips with different shapes, both with and without primary electron optics
  2. Putting the understanding of the contrast mechanism of electron beam techniques on a sound footing by comparing physical models with novel benchmark spectra acquired using a coincidence technique
  3. Improving detection as well as understanding of emitted energy-, angular-, and spin-dependent spectra. This issue will be addressed for the common case of detectors in a field-free environment, and for the special case when the emitted electrons encounter an electric field prior to detection
  4. Electron beam modification of nanostructured surfaces
  5. Progress in the aforementioned fields will lead to the development of an innovative prototypical methodology for nanoscale characterization with electron beams in the form of a compact desktop-type Near-Field-Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (NFESEM).
  6. Finally, the economic impact and feasibility of low energy electron beam methodology will be investigated within the project.

Accordingly, the fellows will develop and acquire experience on a comprehensive methodology beneficial for any industrial or academic laboratory employing or developing electron beam techniques for natural science studies, as well as for biology and engineering. Their participation in this interdisciplinary and intersectoral network will greatly further their career opportunities in S&T in Europe.
