Tiarnan Mullarkey

Trinity College Dublin


Research Project:  New Technologies for Ultra-low Dose-rate Digital Imaging in the STEM
Supervisor: Lewys Jones (TCD)

Tiarnan graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a BA in Physics in 2019. His final year research project was based on creating a digital, electron-counting imaging technique for ADF detectors used in scanning transmission electron microscopes. The aim of this was to produce cleaner, lower-noise, images with applications in low-dose imaging. He will be continuing this work with Lewys Jones in the Ultramicroscopy group for his PhD project through the CDT. He hopes to use and further develop his new technique to characterise samples previously too sensitive to image with current analogue techniques.
