In-situ imaging provides detailed insights on the dynamics of SMSI induced overlayer formation on catalyst particles

In-situ imaging provides detailed insights on the dynamics of SMSI induced overlayer formation on catalyst particles

SMSI is a surface phenomena in which the migration of partially reduced oxide species, from the oxide support, covers the nanoparticle and thereby alters the chemisorption and catalytic properties. It can give rise to desired synergistic effects and increased selectivity. Now, using in situ TEM combined with other analytical techniques and theoretical modelling, researchers at ETH Zurich have been able to create a real time view of the SMSI phenomena.

New article about the Stream Liquid Heating system

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.

Improved FIB lamella preparation

Improved FIB lamella preparation

DENSsolutions introduces the 3rd generation of the FIB stub which enables researchers to prepare a lamella and place it directly on the Nano-Chip, all inside the FIB. In this version, many improvements were made to make the FIB sample preparation easier, safer and quicker. Read the interview with Product Manager Dr. Yevheniy (Gin) Pivak who headed the development.

First Visualisation of Crystal Growth from Organic Molecules

First Visualisation of Crystal Growth from Organic Molecules

Scientists characterise how flufenamic acid, a COX inhibitor, which is used in multiple industries, forms crystals from a liquid solution. The earliest stages of crystal growth are key to determining the final structure of a crystal, and scientists have visualised this process for the first time. Organic molecules were formed and grown in a liquid environment and characterised using the DENSsolutions Ocean In Situ system for Liquid Phase Electron Microscopy (LPEM).
