Toma Susi


In 2014 the Finnish physicist Toma Susi has discovered, together with collaborators from the UK, that silicon impurities, occasionally found in graphene, jump during imaging. This discovery has built the foundation for his current multidisciplinary ERC Starting Grant "Atomic precision materials engineering (ATMEN)", it will allow Susi to combine experiment and simulation to develop electron beam manipulation into a practical tool. Its goals are to improve our understanding of the mechanism, advance the implantation of atoms beyond silicon, accelerate accurate modeling, and automate manipulations.
