Thin film oxides are a source of endless fascination for the materials scientist. These materials are highly flexible, can be integrated into almost limitless combinations, and exhibit many useful functionalities for device applications. While precision synthesis techniques, such as molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and pulsed laser deposition (PLD), provide a high degree of control over these systems, there remains a disconnect between ideal and realized materials. Because thin films adopt… 
py4DSTEM: A Software Package for Four-Dimensional Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy Data Analysis
Abstract Scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) allows for imaging, diffraction, and spectroscopy of materials on length scales ranging from microns to atoms. By using a high-speed, direct


LaAlO3 stoichiometry is key to electron liquid formation at LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interfaces.
It is demonstrated, through experiments and first-principle calculations, that the cation stoichiometry of the nominal LaAlO3 layer is key to 2-DEL formation: only Al-rich LaAl O3 results in a 2- DEL.
Scanning probe microscopy.
During the past year, scanning probe microscopy, especially atomic force microscopy (AFM), has taken root in the biological sciences community, as is evident from the large number of publications and
Advanced Materials Interfaces
The modification of water/solid interfaces by adsorbed neutral or charged macromolecules is proved to provide an excellent environment for controlled protein loading and release. Advanced

We discuss evolution of the Fermi surface (FS) topology with doping in electron-doped cuprates within the framework of a one-band Hubbard Hamiltonian, where antiferromagnetism and superconductivity
Current Opinion in Solid State and Materials Science
The complexity of materials aging may be seen as a result of the interplay between several activation processes operating on multiple spatial and temporal scales. Though the disciplines involved may

Charge transport phenomena in multiferroic heterostructures, where both magnetic and ferroelectric order parameters are used to control charge transport, suggest new possibilities to control the conduction paths of the electron spin, with potential for device applications.
Superresolution Multidimensional Imaging with Structured Illumination Microscopy
The resolution of an optical microscope is fundamentally limited by diffraction. In a conventional wide-field fluorescence microscope, the resolution limit is at best 200 nm. However, modern

It is shown that in many cases PRISM can provide a speedup that scales with f4 compared to multislice simulations, with a negligible loss of accuracy, and is demonstrated with large-scale scanning transmission electron microscopy image simulations of a crystalline nanoparticle on an amorphous carbon substrate.
A deep convolutional neural network to analyze position averaged convergent beam electron diffraction patterns.
A series of deep convolutional neural networks are established to automatically analyze position averaged convergent beam electron diffraction patterns and are shown to be orders of magnitude faster than a brute force method while maintaining accuracy.
Reconstruction of 3-D Atomic Distortions from Electron Microscopy with Deep Learning
It is demonstrated that an end-to-end deep learning model can successfully recover 3-dimensional atomic distortions of a variety of oxide perovskite materials from a single 2-dimensional experimental scanning transmission electron (STEM) micrograph, in the process resolving a longstanding question in the recovery of 3-D atomic distortions from STEM experiments.
