Abstract:The addition of continuous fluid flow through a set of electron transparent windows in a transmission electron microscope (TEM) or scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) will provide the ability to image reactions that occur at the nanoscale. In particular, liquid STEM… more
Abstract:Friction and wear are energy-robbing processes that represent a tremendous burden to the national economy, especially in this time of record oil/fuel prices. Unfortunately, the field of tribology (the science of friction, lubrication, and wear of interacting surfaces in relative motion) lags many… more
Abstract:In situ tensile testing in the transmission electron microscope (TEM) has been a powerful tool for revealing underlying physical mechanisms at the nano or even atomic scale when materials are subjected to an applied stress. However, all commercially available in situ TEM… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
