Cryogenic transmission electron microscopy is simply transmission electron microscopy conducted on specimens that are cooled in the microscope. The ability to probe chemistry, structure, and bonding on the atomic scale in the temperature range from a few Kelvin to room temperature in structural and functional materials in a variable temperature transmission electron microscope is an intriguing prospect that will open up many new areas of materials research. The articles in the December 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin explore the current capabilities, future developments, and opportunities for cryogenic electron microscopy in materials science.

This webinar complements the theme of the December 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin focusing on Cryogenic Electron Microscopy and will feature talks from experts in the field. A Q&A session will be held with each speaker at the conclusion of their talks.

Talk Presentations:

  • Soft matter and nanomaterials characterization by cryogenic transmission electron microscopy
    John Daniel Watt, Los Alamos National Laboratory
  • Cryogenic Specimens for Nanoscale Characterization of Solid-Liquid Interfaces
    Michael Zachman, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
