Advancements with In-Situ Microscopy NIST 2017

Addressing In-Situ TEM Challenges Using Integrated Hardware and Software

With the advent of faster data transfer and processing capabilities, it is now possible to record and manage large datasets in situ. You can store each pixel in each frame directly to disk, and treat them as an individual image. Alternatively, you can apply various algorithms or scripts post-capture to quantify the stimulus applied to the system. This greatly enhances the flexibility of data management and gives you previously unseen resolution in time and space to resolve reactions that previously were unknown.

This intensive workshop at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD, will present and demonstrate state-of-the-art instruments and software for in-situ EM applications. Lectures and hands-on lab sessions will show how a complete in-situ system can optimize data management and reveal critical details in reaction processes. The in-situ system will feature:

Presentations will include:

  • Addressing in-situ TEM challenges using integrated hardware and software
  • Advantages of direct detection and electron counting for electron energy loss spectroscopy data acquisition

The final workshop program will be distributed to confirmed registrants. Space is limited. Before registering, please read the important NIST visitor requirements below.

Registration: The deadline to register is June 16, 2017. NIST visitors are required to provide the following identification at all NIST security checkpoints:

  • US citizens: Provide full name and show a valid driver's license and car registration or rental agreement.
  • Non-US visitors/guests: Complete Form 1260 and show passport and visa (including green card).
