In-Situ TEM/STEM Webinar
The one-hour live webinar will discuss what’s possible with in-situ heating and electrical biasing in TEM/STEM. Gain new insights into a whole range of materials including semiconductors, electrical devices, 2D materials and nanoparticles.
The webinar will explain the basics of in situ heating and electrical characterisation, featuring pioneering research from Oak Ridge National Laboratory on a range of next-generation materials:
- How MEMS-based sample control has revolutionised electron microscopy
- Engineering new materials inside a STEM
- Why you should be using in-situ tools to accelerate your research
In-Situ Heating and Electrical Characterisation
Transmission electron microscopes have become an increasingly important tool for characterising nanoscale materials. MEMS-based sample supports have made it possible to heat and electrically characterise samples in-situ. Dynamic reactions can then be imaged directly at an atomic scale.
Focused ion beam (FIB) tools and sample preparation workflows are available for research involving semiconductors and electrical devices. FIB lamellae can now be prepared directly on MEMS-based sample supports. This enables pA-level electrical characterisation at atomic resolution. In situ TEM is also being used to accelerate progress in graphene studies and other 2D materials.
In-Situ Studies at Oak Ridge National Laboratory
At Oak Ridge National Laboratory, researchers Xiahan Sang and Ray Unocic (who will be speaking in the webinar) used in-situ heating to synthesise and characterise complex structural and chemical transformations of edge defects at atomic resolution.
They have developed new ways to engineer 2D materials inside a TEM, which opens up new possibilities in materials development and characterisation. This work will be discussed in the webinar, along with other pioneering developments in the field of material science.
