9:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m. Registration and Welcome protochips rendering
9:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m. Introduction to In Situ EM

Jordan Moering, Protochips

Analyzing samples using in situ EM techniques has enabled unprecedented discovery in research fields ranging from catalysis to drug delivery. The Protochips product suite brings heating and electrical testing and liquid or gaseous environments to any TEM/STEM and in this presentation we will give an overview and show recent results from the Poseidon Select liquid cell and the Fusion heating and electrical system.

10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. Hands-on Demonstration of Fusion Heating

Kate Marusak, Protochips

See how the fusion system enables accurate, uniform sample heating within your TEM. See how Clarity software controls enable pecise control of experiment conditions with a simple, user-friendly interface.

11:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Coffee Break

Join us for a quick break with light refreshments

11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Phase Transformations of Nanoscale Systems Using In Situ TEM

Judy Cha, Deptartment of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, Yale University

Many nanoscale systems exhibit phase transformations in response to stimuli, which consequently change the material properties of the systems. Thus, investigations of such phase transformations and subsequent correlation with changes in materials properties are critical for fundamental understanding of materials and potential applications. Here, we use in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) as a tool to study directly how phase transformations occur, deviate, and are controlled at the nanoscale under either thermal or electrical stimuli.

12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m. Lunch

Lunch will be served in the atrium and is free of charge to registrants.

1:30 p.m.-2:30 p.m. Introduction to Environmental In Situ TEM

Jordan Moering, Protochips

Learn how imaging dynamic events in real, wet environments is changing the way research is conducted inside the TEM/ STEM. This presentation will feature an overview of how Poseidon works, and its numerous applications.

2:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. Coffee Break

Join us for a quick break with light refreshments

3:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Hands-on Demonstration of Poseidon Select

Kate Marusak, Protochips

Experience all steps of Poseidon Select operation including holder assembly, leak check operation, and imaging conditions. Witness real samples undergoing nucleation and growth within the electron microscope in a dynamic nanoscale experiment.

4:30 p.m-5:00 p.m Wrap Up and Conclusions

The Protochips team will be available for questions and to discuss your specific research project or experimental interests.
