In situ TEM studies of relaxation dynamics and crystal nucleation in thin film nanoglasses

Tuesday publication update! In this recent publication, the #FusionAX system was used to directly observe crystallization processes at glass-glass interfaces in sputtered CuZr thin film nanoglasses. The authors utilizing in situ heating experiments combined with other interesting techniques such as nanobeam diffraction patterns (NBDP) and electron correlation microscopy (ECM). This powerful combination allowed them to … Read More

Shedding light on the birth of hybrid perovskites: a correlative study by in situ electron microscopy and synchrotron-based x-ray scattering

An additional Friday publication update! Lead halide perovskites (LHPs) are the future of optoelectronic devices, thanks to their unique physical properties. Yet, the synthesis of MAPI perovskites via ligand-assisted reprecipitation (LARP) has so far not been researched. In this groundbreaking study, advanced in-situ techniques were done with the #PoseidonAX and the #Atmosphere system to demystify … Read More
