Symposium A

Investigation of Materials at the Nanoscale using Electrons and X-rays

(Jointly organized with Australian MRS)

Electron and X-ray excitations play a fundamental role in materials and device discovery. This symposium aims to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the characterization of nanoscale materials to obtain detailed pictures of their chemical, physical and structural properties.

 

As a tribute to the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry which was awarded for high resolution cryo-TEM work on biological materials, this symposium will not be limited to hard matter topics but will also cover bio and soft materials.

 

Besides electron and X-ray techniques using laboratory sources, synchrotron X-ray based techniques will be outlined in this symposium. We invite contributions in the use of these techniques for the study of inorganic, organic, hybrid and biological materials and devices.

  • In-Situ and operando methods in SEM, TEM and X-ray techniques (stimuli can be in different forms such as heat, electrical biasing, mechanical, optical, etc.)
  • Functional studies of materials/devices (for applications in catalysis, energy storage, energy conversion, aerospace, microelectronics, etc.)
  • Study of magnetic materials, including electron holography
  • High resolution TEM and STEM
  • X-ray diffraction and scattering methods (synchrotron and lab sources)
  • Microanalysis methods such as EBSD, EPMA, etc.
  • High-throughput and machine learning in EM and X-ray based characterization techniques
  • Low dose techniques in TEM characterisation
  • Spectroscopy using EM and X-rays
  • Tomography (TEM, X-ray CT)
