Additional Friday Publication Post! This latest research using the #AtmosphereAX System visualizes the structural transformation of NiO/YSZ/BZY nanocomposite particles during the hydrogen reduction reaction with in situ gas electron microscopy!

This study shows the behavior of nanocomposite particles, used as cermet anodes, at the atomic level, at 1 atmosphere H2, and at high temperature. At high temperatures and under hydrogen, the nanocomposites underwent reduction to form Ni particles.

The authors used both spherical aberration (Cs) corrected transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and high-angle annular dark-field scanning transmission electron microscopy (HAADF-STEM) to observe the transformations. When the authors heated the same particles in solely N2 gas, no changes were observed.

With the information from this study, more efficient cermet anodes can be developed and it contributes to the broader fiels of materials science.
