Seminario en el ICP – Protochips™ in-situ TEM solutions with AXON: Delivering on the Promise of Atomic Scale Dynamics
24 January @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
New innovations are transforming the Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) from a simple high-resolution image acquisition tool into a nanoscale materials research and development laboratory. Researchers can now better understand material behavior by analyzing samples in real-world gas or liquid environments, at high temperature and with ultra-low noise electrochemical and electrical biasing techniques. With the new in-situ tools from Protochips, TEM research occurs in highly controlled environments at high resolution without sacrificing the analytical capabilities of the TEM such as EDS. Applications for these tools include heterogeneous catalyst reactions, imaging of living cells, nanostructure nucleation and growth, battery and fuel cell materials, high temperature nanoparticle behavior, soft materials, and semiconductor devices.
In this presentation we show the most recent results using the Protochips Atmosphere™ gas cell, the Protochips Poseidon™ Select flowing liquid and electrochemistry cell, and the Protochips Fusion™ heating and electrical biasing system. All these systems are based on AXON.
Special mention will be given to the Protochips Atmosphere™ system combines the Protochips patented silicon carbide MEMS heating technology, closed-cell holder design, and gas handling manifold, with our innovative Clarity workflow driven software allowing for atomic-scale resolution at gas pressures up to 1 atm and sustained temperatures up to 1000°C. Especially for applications in the field of catalysis the system allows gas mixing and independent control of gas flow and pressure, as well as the integration at gas analysis equipment (RGA). Atmosphere is also compatible with analysis tools including EDS and EELS. Recent results on gas-phase catalyst reactions will be presented.
Furthermore AXON redefines the TEM workflow by linking the TEM, its detectors and in-situ systems together with a revolutionary new machine vision software platform. It improves data quality, enhances and extends your current microscope capabilities and makes in situ experiments easier for the novice to most advanced users. The AXON platform is a module-based software solution. Easily plug in new modules as they are released, and your system will stay up to date with the latest features.
