The first in situ observation of layered metastable heterostructure formation

Using the DENSsolutions Wildfire system, Markus Terker and his colleagues from the Paul-Drude-Institut were able to thoroughly investigate via in situ TEM the formation of heterostructures from starting materials with vastly different properties. The hybrid preparation approach utilized in this work could be applied to investigate many more solid-state reactions in heterostructures, enabling a direct and accessible way to visualize complex processes.

Visualizing the structural evolution of thermally-decaying platinum nanowires

Using the DENSsolutions Wildfire system, Torsten Walbert and his colleagues from the Institute for Materials Science, TU Darmstadt were able to investigate via in situ TEM the influence of temperature on polycrystalline platinum nanowires. Observing this process under remarkably high resolution enabled them to capture for the first time the internal transformations during both early and intermediate stages of the platinum nanowire decay.

The first direct observation of pharmaceutical non-classical crystallization

Using the DENSsolutions Ocean LPEM system, Dr. Jennifer Cookman from the Bernal Institute in the University of Limerick and her colleagues were able to capture the intermediate pre-crystalline stages of a small organic molecule. This research marks the first ever direct observation of a pharmaceutical material undergoing non-classical crystallization, highlighting the rising value of in-situ TEM techniques in the pharmaceutical industry.
