Research Interests 

Laure's main research interest is the determination of atomic-scale structure in inorganic materials through the application of transmission electron microscopy, with emphasis on nanoscale crystals, crystalline defects, interfaces and aperiodic phases (incommensurate crystalline phases, quasicrystals, but also curved graphitic structures). Currently she is particularly interested in determining the atomic-scale mechanisms of solid-state nucleation and growth in metallic alloys.
