Today’s growing economy requires innovative, new solutions that provide both better battery performance and cleaner energy solutions. With Protochips’ machine-vision powered suite of in-situ TEM tools you can utilize the electron microscope as a real-time laboratory to image and measure the underlying mechanisms that control the performance and behavior of energy materials on the nanoscale.
Visualize the nanoscale processes that control solid-state battery material performance. Observe ion transfer reactions, growth kinetics, capacity degradation mechanisms and more without compromising resolutionClick here to learn more about our in situ Fusion AX system
Observe charge-discharge reactions in real time, test how different electrolytes suppress dendrite formation and study the nanoscale mechanisms that control capacity fading. These are just some of the in-situ TEM studies made possible with liquid-EM.Click here to learn more about our Poseidon AX system
In this application note, written by Protochips, we summarize how in situ electron microscopy using liquid phase is challenged by radiolysis side effects and how to minimize these effects.
In this paper, we take a look at how AXON Dose tracks the electron flux and cumulative dose, and why this might be useful for all experiments.
In this summarized paper, L. Mehdi and N. Browning at the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research at Pacific Northwest National Lab in Richland used the Poseidon system to observe the charging and discharging process of lithium-ion batteries.
In this summarized paper, Dr. David Muller’s research team at Cornell University used the Poseidon system in his FEI Titan electron microscope to observe the charging and discharging process of a Li-ion battery.
In this paper, written by Protochips, nanometer resolution elemental mapping of nanostructures in solution was demonstrated using the Poseidon system.
This paper, written by Protochips, summarizes different publications on how to best do EELS and EDS in liquid environments.
In this paper, researchers in Muller’s group showed how to perform EELS during in situ electron microscopy using a Poseidon system.
