Prof. Dr. Rafal E. Dunin-Borkowski is Director of the Institute for Microstructure Research and the Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons in Forschungszentrum Jülich. Between 2007 and 2010, he led the establishment of the Center for Electron Nanoscopy in the Technical University of Denmark. From 2000 to 2006 he held a Royal Society University Research Fellowship in the University of Cambridge. He specializes in the characterization of magnetic and electronic materials at the highest spatial resolution using advanced transmission electron microscopy techniques, including aberration-corrected high-resolution transmission electron microscopy of interfaces, surfaces and defects in materials, quantitative image analysis in electron microscopy for determining local compositions and site occupancies, electron tomography for determining three-dimensional morphologies and defect distributions and off-axis electron holography for characterising magnetic and electric fields in materials with nm spatial resolution. In 2009 he was awarded the Ernst Ruska Prize of the German Society for Electron Microscopy. In 2012 he was awarded an Advanced Grant by the European Research Council.
