WIN Seminar -What is Next in High Resolution Electron Microscopy in Nanotechnology?Export this event to calendar

Thursday, October 9, 2014 — 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM EDT

On Thursday, October 9th, 2014, 11am-12pm in QNC1501, Professor Miguel Jose Yacaman, Chair of the Physics & Astronomy Department at The University of Texas at San Antonio, USA, will deliver a seminar entitled "What is Next in High Resolution Electron Microscopy in Nanotechnology?". 

This seminar is free and open to the public.

ABSTRACT:
Modern electron microscopy has achieved an old dream to break the 1A resolution barrier. Indeed microscopes such as the ARM in UTSA have a resolution of 0 .8 A(80 pm) that can be achieved on a routine basis. Our microscope was the number one in the world until just recently when the DOE center at Berkeley achieved 0.5 A. In real terms since the size of the atom is in that range (He atom is 40 pm). This means that the resolution that we have attained is the limit of what can be achieved. Below this, nuclear interactions and other phenomena will dominate. So what is the Future of Electron Microscopy? It can be said that from now on, the improvements will not be in resolution but in other areas. In this talk, 
we will review the most important areas of nanotechnology that demand 
significant improvements in electron microscopy techniques. Some examples are: the need for more accurate in situ experimentation and measurements; single electron detection; the need for low voltage; and many others.
