This PMC will focus on the use of quantitative liquid and gas environmental electron microscopy tools and methods to understand 'real-world' mechanisms, structures, and properties of materials. The value of controlled environmental electron microscopy is the ability to create in-situ and operando conditions for observing a diverse set of reactions including catalysis, assembly/dynamics of biological and materials structures/processes, corrosion, electrochemical processes, phase transformations, redox reactions, etc. all with high spatial resolution observation for an informed atomic-level mechanistic understanding. New approaches in experimental design, data processing, instrumentation, and automation are enhancing the usefulness of these experiments in real-world applications to solve some of the most challenging and longstanding problems in materials science and nanoscience. Topics covered within this PMC include:
