MRS Fall 2017 Meeting

Do you face challenges characterizing porous materials such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) using an electron microscope?  Electron microscopes have made little impact on porous materials such as MOFs whose structures are often sensitive to electron beam irradiation due to the extreme porosity. Until now...

With the extraordinary ability to capture individual electrons under extremely low illumination conditions, the K2® direct detection camera was able to acquire high-resolution images of MOF ZIF-8 with an unprecedented resolution that reveal the atomic structures of the material’s bulk, surface, and interfacial areas. The groundbreaking results were presented in the research article, “Unravelling surface and interfacial structure of a metal-organic framework by transmission electron microscopy” available through Nature Materials advance online publication, 20 February 2017 (
Groundbreaking MOF Results
Find out more about the K2 and new K3™ direct detection cameras at MRS Fall 2017. Please visit Gatan booth 405 and speak with our R&D scientists about your materials applications. Our innovative tools are used by researchers in key applications and techniques:

If you are facing challenges analyzing your samples or looking for technology to acquire your best results, please stop by. If you prefer, please contact Dr. Danielle Elswick to schedule an appointment. We hope to see you at the Hynes Convention Center.

* We invite you to attend Symposium TC02: In Situ Studies of Materials Transformations.
