In situ TEM Nanomechanics
We focus on novel experimental methods to investigate deformation mechanisms in small volumes. In particular, we use in situ TEM techniques such as quantitative nanocompression to both measure the mechanical properties and observe the microstructural evolution of nanoscale volumes simultaneously.
Electron Microcharacterization of Soft Materials
In situ SEM/TEM of Laser-based Processes
We have developed techniques and instrumentation to observe laser-based processes in the SEM or TEM. Nanofabrication processes such as ablation, laser cleaning, deposition and growth of nanostructures can then be observed in real time using lensed fiber probes.
