The Current Limitations of Conventional TEM

Conventional TEM’s primarily act as an imaging tool to characterize structures of materials.

In the last few years, state-of-the-art TEM’s have enabled atomic resolution imaging and analysis, which has been achieved through the use of image or probe aberration-corrected TEM’s. The performance of these TEM’s as an imaging tool has proven to be extremely valuable in identifying various material structures.

However, these conventional TEM’s are still unable to support the whole research process. The reason is that conventional TEM is unable to replicate real-world environmental conditions (heating, gas, liquid, etc.) as the sample is always introduced into a high vacuum, static, environment.

This fundamentally limits the value and obtainable benefits of a TEM.

The Power of In-Situ TEM

Observing processes ‘on-site’ as they are occurring and under changing external stimuli is the paramount goal of in-situ, time resolved techniques.

DENSsolutions utilizes MEMS devices, called Nano-Chips, to control the sample’s environmental surroundings and replicate real-life application conditions inside your TEM (see image above). The introduction of in-situ capabilities into a TEM, transforms the system from a static imaging tool into a multi-functional laboratory.

With DENSsolutions in-situ microscopy solutions, researchers are now able to characterize structures, measure properties, evaluate performance and optimize processes & synthesis.

All in one ultimate system!

By incorporating all stages of the development model, in-situ TEM unlocks unprecedented research capabilities and move Nanoscience to the next level.
