Webinar: In-Situ Nanomechanics in the Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) 18/10/18
Join Bruker for a nanomechanical testing webinar entitled In-Situ Nanomechanics in the Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) on Thursday 18th October 2018 at 8AM PDT / 11AM EDT / 15:00 GMT.
In-Situ Nanomechanical Testing
In-situ nanomechanical testing inside the TEM delivers unique insights into material dynamics at the micrometre, nanometre, and atomic scales. You can now study materials like never before, with recent technological advances including nanomechanical holder design, detectors and new microscopy techniques. This webinar will focus on observing small-scale material behaviour under applied stress.
Dr. Sanjit Bhowmick from Bruker will discuss the technology available and the possibilities it opens up:
- Design and capabilities of the Hysitron PI 95 TEM PicoIndenter
- Small-scale mechanical testing techniques inside a TEM
Dr. Christian Kübel will present research from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology:
- Studying thin films in-situ under cyclic tensile strain
- Dynamic crystallographic changes and the Bauschinger effect
