Understanding the nanoscale processes that control corrosion initiation and propagation in bulk materials is a critical area of research. With Protochips’ machine-vision powered suite of in-situ TEM tools you can utilize the electron microscope as a real-time laboratory to study the underlying mechanisms that control corrosion initiation and propagation.

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, researchers from the Oak Ridge National Lab viewed the realtime corrosion process of nanocubes into nanocages.
In this paper, written by Protochips, nanometer resolution elemental mapping of nanostructures in solution has been 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.

Electrochemical aging confirms migration and coalescence within a fuel cell. Migration and coalescence are key mechanisms in the degradation of fuel cells. In this experiment a solution of Pt3C0/C and .1M HClO4 is prepared within the electrochemical cell of the Poseidon Select Electrochemistry. The cell was then inserted into the electron microscope for imaging. While imaging the cell, the sample was exposed to a cyclic pattern of electrical stimuli, from -.5V to 1V. Coalescence is observed to correspond to changes in the electrical stimuli of the experiment.
