Achieving mass transport control with the award-winning Stream system

The DENSsolutions Stream system was designed to address the growing challenges faced by the LPTEM community. Thanks to its unique on-chip flow channel design, users can effectively control experimental conditions such as pressure, flow rate, liquid thickness, electrical potential and bubbles. These advantages are demonstrated by visualizing the in situ STEM growth of copper with multiple morphologies.

New article about the Stream Liquid Heating system

We are proud to announce a new publication in the Journal of Materials Chemistry C, in which we collaborated with our customers to observe the temperature dependent etching behavior of silica nanoparticles inside the TEM. The paper discusses the design of the Stream system and how it allows to control the solution conditions inside the Nano-Cell. For this experiment, we were particularly interested in the comparison between in situ LPEM data and ex situ data from more traditional methods.

Driving the field of LPEM forward at the Gordon conference

Last month, our Stream Product Manager Gin Pivak, CTO Hugo Perez Garza and Microsystems Engineer Tijn van Omme visited the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Liquid Phase Electron Microscopy (LPEM). They were there to inform the LPEM community about our Stream system which allows researchers to introduce an accurate and controlled liquid environment combined with in-situ heating or biasing possibilities.
