PS2.3: In Situ and Environmental EM
Session co-organisers: Eva Olsson, Thomas Willum Hansen, Suzanne Giorgio
In situ and environmental electron microscopy enables the direct correlation between microstructure and materials properties. Investigations can be carried out at different length scales, ranging from the micro- to the atomic scale. Correlative microscopy, where different analysis techniques are combined to extend both length and time scales, further expands the information volume that can be extracted. This session addresses both in situ and environmental studies and the associated method and technique developments that open new possibilities for both fundamental understanding of materials, design of new materials with tailored properties and new applications. Various aspects of heating, cooling, gas treatments, electron beam induced deposition, sculpting and characterization of properties etc. within the microscope will be covered.
