The main focus of research interest is determination, prediction, and tuning of the charge carrier concentration and mobility at interfaces in nano-structured conducting solids. Based on the precise knowledge of the controlling parameters the goal is to develop next generation electrochemical devices such as fuel cells, batteries and supercapacitors by utilizing/manipulating the electrical nature of the interfaces in the functional materials.

Research

Electronic and Magnetic materials are an active field of research due to their various applications ranging from memory and data storage to sensors and modulators. Manipulating phase transitions or magnetization using temperature, voltage, laser, strain forms the heart of these applications. We use X-ray techniques to image and understand the response of electronic and magnetic materials to the application of voltage, temperature and laser. Especially laser excitation allows us to reach femtosecond-nanosecond timescales, providing us with a unique method to image the phase transition or switching dynamics in these materials and manipulate physical properties on ultrafast timescales.

Research

The development of next generation spintronic devices, sensors, and low temperature solid oxide fuel cells requires the development of materials with new functional properties not found in conventional bulk materials. A novel route involves harnessing the unexpected physical phenomena that result from the changes in structure and chemistry which occur over nanometer scales at surfaces and interfaces.

Research

Klaus van Benthem is interested in the investigation of the functionalities of novel nano-materials. He uses electron microscopy tools to image nano-materials with atomic resolution and correlate their morphologies and atomic structures with nano-scale and macro-scale physical properties. His interests are also in the development of new strategies to investigate materials under more realistic environmental conditions, such as gas phases, liquids, electrical and mechanical fields, etc. His overall vision is the characterization of functional materials with atomic resolution under their anticipated working conditions, i.e., “at work”.
