Dr. Annalena (Lena) Wolff is the Microscopist at the Kavli Nanoscience Institute. Lena joins the KNI from the Central Analytical Research Facility (CARF) at Queensland University of Technology, where she managed, trained users, and developed new methodologies on a suite of focused-ion beams and scanning electron microscopes. Lena is an expert on the Zeiss Orion NanoFab He-ion microscope.
Lena is the editor-in-chief of the Helium Ion Microscopy Newsletter. Working with John Notte (Chief Scientist for Business Development, Carl Zeiss), this international newsletter brings essential information, news, and events about this technology to a network of ion microscopists around the globe. Over the past several years, Lena has actively participated in science communication and media efforts to educate the public on science and technology
Dr. Wolff received her Ph.D. in Physics from Bielefeld University in Germany.
Role in the KNI
Dr. Wolff oversees the management and user training of the KNI Laboratory's suite of SEM, FIB, AFM, and TEM microscopes, such as the Zeiss ORION NanoFab (Helium, Neon & Gallium FIB), the Thermo Fisher Nova 600 NanoLab (SEM, Ga-FIB, GIS & Omniprobe), Thermo Fisher Nova 200 NanoLab (SEM & EDS), Thermo Fisher Sirion (SEM & EDS), Thermo Fisher Quanta 200F (ESEM, EDS, Lithography & Probe Station), and the Thermo Fisher Tecnai TF-30 (50-300 kV) STEM.
