A Robust Microfabricated Specimen Support with Integrated Capabilities for In-Situ Experimentation in the Transmission Electron Microscope

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: David P. Nackashi, Ph.D., Mr.
Award Amount: $94,782.00
Abstract:
79454S Despite advances in modern electron optics, which have permitted observation with unprecedented resolutions, most materials science research involves the quantification of static properties of materials. This is mostly due to limitations in modern day equipment and the time and cost… More
