• Structural Characterization of Natural Quartz by Scanning TEM 

      Busam, Jochen; Wenner, Sigurd; Muggerud, Astrid Marie; Van Helvoort, Antonius (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      For quartz, despite its industrial importance and an extensive amount of research done on it, there are still open fundamental questions, e.g. regarding crystal defects, phase changes or damage mechanisms under ionizing ...
    • TEM characterization of high-purity quartz 

      Busam, Jochen (Master thesis, 2017)
      The PV industry requires high-purity quartz for the production of crucibles for mono crystalline silicon production. Even the smallest amounts of impurities can degrade the performance of photodiode wafers, therefore a ...
