Van Vlack Lectureship: Transmission Electron Microscopy in Motion


Frances Ross
MIT

We can watch crystals grow in the electron microscope by slowly adding atoms onto a clean surface. The movies tell us about kinetics and thermodynamics but can also be entertaining, frustrating, or both at the same time. I will attempt to share the joy of this type of “in situ” microscopy as we aim to understand how atoms assemble into nanowires or nanocrystals and use the information to control the formation of more complicated nanostructures with new properties.
