In Situ Workshop

The workshop gives you a unique opportunity for hands-on experience of in situ in gas and liquid environments. Leading researchers from industry and academia will present their latest research. There will be three simultaneous tracks of live demonstrations on:

  • Heating and thermal electrical studies
  • Liquid and electrochemistry studies
  • Gas with pressure and heating studies

You will have the unique opportunity to learn about and experience all three modes of in situ research. Find out all about new capabilities in research that represent the future of in situ.
