Quantifiably Better In Situ Electron Microscopy with Protochips' Heating and Electrical Biasing and Liquid Cell Platforms

(Nanowerk News) Protochips designs products for today’s leaders discovering tomorrow’s technology solutions to world problems. Protochips advanced in situ electron microscopy with the Aduro™ 300 heating and electrical biasing platform. Now the Poseidon™ 500 electrochemistry liquid cell platform, pushes further. Protochips will demo these products with world-renowned speakers at M&M 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Better In Situ Microscopy
Aduro is a scalable platform for quantitative electron microscopy of micro and nanomaterials. It revolutionizes the analytical capabilities of electron microscopes by enabling in situ experimentation at temperatures up to 1200 °C while maintaining atomic resolution. It’s the first commercially viable solution for real-time, dynamic thermal and electrical studies in a fast and versatile high-resolution system. The Aduro 300 is easy to use and includes a double-tilt option.
Poseidon is a scalable platform for quantitative in situ electron microscopy of hydrated species. It allows researchers to image materials and biological samples within a fully-hydrated environment dynamically and in real time. Through a Metrohm™ partnership, the Autolab™ electrochemistry system is incorporated into Poseidon 500. A precision electric option for very-low-current analysis is available.
Demos & Expert Presentations
Protochips is hosting a JEOL 1400 TEM in booth 303, and daily live in-instrument demonstrations of the Aduro and Poseidon platforms. Contact sales@protochips.com to schedule a demo time.
Protochips will host three expert presentations:
  • Monday, July 30, 5.30pm: Dr. Paulo Ferreira, University of Texas at Austin, highlights his work sintering silver nanoparticles as a function of particle size and temperature.
  • Tuesday, July 31, 5.30pm: Dr. David Muller, Cornell University, showcases current research in the physics of renewable energy materials and the atomic-scale control of materials in an electrochemistry environment.
  • Wednesday, August 1, 5.30pm: Dr. Debbie Kelly, Virginia Tech, discusses studying living viruses at nanometer resolutions using tissue-compatible grids with binding surface chemistries.
