Goethite mineral dissolution to probe the chemistry of radiolytic water in liquid-phase transmission electron microscopy

In this recent publication, the authors have used liquid phase electron microscopy to observe the dynamic behavior of geothite during dissolution under the irradiation of the electron beam. Kinetic simulations of the different radiolysis species provides insight into the redox and acidity of the liquid during the exposure to the beam. These interactions are very … Read More

Operando Electrochemical TEM, ex-situ SEM and Atomistic Modeling Studies of MnS dissolution and its role in Triggering Pitting Corrosion in 304L Stainless Steel

Researchers at University of Virginia used operando TEM to study pitting corrosion in stainless steel. Using a Protochips #PoseidonSelect they performed liquid-TEM studies during applied potentiodynamic polarization and observed the dissolution of MnS in inclusions in a lamella of 304L stainless steel.
