Prof. Quentin Ramasse


Quentin Ramasse holds a joint Chair in Advanced Electron Microscopy at the School of Chemical and Process Engineering and School of Physics, University of Leeds. After an M.Eng. at Ecole Centrale Paris and an M.Math (Part III of the Mathematical Tripos) at the Unviersity of Cambridge, he obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Cambridge as a member of the Microstructural Physics Group working on optical aberration measurements methodologies for aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM). He then moved to the National Center for Electron Microscopy (NCEM) in Berkeley, a U.S. Department of Energy-funded user facility, initially for a postdoctoral fellowship before being appointed Staff Scientist. At NCEM he took part in the TEAM project which saw development of the world's first 0.5Å electron microscope. Since 2010, Quentin is the Director of the SuperSTEM Laboratory, the EPSRC UK National Research Facility for Advanced Electron Microscopy, which is located on the outskirts of Warrington on the SciTech Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus. Quentin has published extensively in the field of STEM-EELS, with a dual focus on STEM technique development and on applications to a wide range of energy harvesting materials, from 2-dimensional materials such as graphene and MoS2 nano-catalysts to complex oxides.
