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 complemented the December 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin and featured talks from experts in the field. A Q&A session was held with each speaker at the conclusion of their talks.
