Measuring Materials’ Functionalities and Dynamics in Liquid and Gaseous Environments
Organizers: Huolin Xin, Raymond R. Unocic, Renu Sharma, Judith C. Yang

The emerging capabilities to deliver liquid and gaseous environments in a transmission electron microscope (TEM) have enabled high-resolution measurements of materials structures, chemistry, and functionalities in their native growth and operando conditions. This one-day pre-meeting congress (PMC), organized by the MSA Electron Microscopy in Liquids and Gases (EMLG) focused interest group (FIG), will provide a forum for the communication of emergent opportunities, challenges, and practical limitations of measuring materials functionalities and dynamics in the presence of liquids and gases in electron microscopes. Topics include but not limited to the development of sample environment with functional stimuli and measurements, progress in developing high-throughput analytical imaging of materials dynamics, big data storage, mining, and quantification, sample-beam interactions, and applications of environmental TEM in electrochemistry, nucleation and growth, catalysis, and corrosion.
