In situ / in operando Microscopy Methods and Applications

Recent progress in the area of in situ electron microscopy has allowed for quantitative interrogations of the deformation of nanoscale materials and has been an enabling technology. Our group is pushing the cutting edge of in situ testing methods and instrument science to allow for unprecedented views of materials behavior and evolution.
