Application Notes

  • AG70.2 – In Situ environmental study of perovskite-noble metal catalyst

    Researchers at University of Michigan are exploring promising new automotive exhaust catalyst materials, and are using Atmosphere to simulate conditions that closely match the real-world catalyst reaction environment in the TEM. These results better describe the catalyst material behavior in real-time at the atomic scale with STEM.

  • AG71.2 – In Situ Few Layer Graphene Etching Using Nanoparticles

    Graphene, a two-dimensional material with unique chemical and electrical properties is extensively studied for applications in electronics, optics and catalysis. Researchers at DSI-IPCMS-CNRS/University of Strasbourg, France, used Atmosphere to visualize the FLG etching process under relevant reaction conditions.

  • AG80.3 – Visualizing Hydrogen Absorption in Palladium Thin Films

    Palladium metal can absorb hydrogen to form the palladium hydride phase under the right conditions. Researchers working at the University of Manchester track the transition of palladium to palladium hydride and back to palladium in situ by exposing the sample to hydrogen at relevant pressures and temperatures in the TEM using Atmosphere.

  • AG81.1 – Novel Catalyst Structure Dynamics Captured at the Atomic Scale

    A group at the University of Pennsylvania developed a new nanoparticle catalyst system with exceptional activity for methane combustion. The authors show the core-shell structure was successfully synthesized via transmission electron microscopy (TEM), but a thorough analysis of the catalyst behavior over a wide temperature range was required to understand catalyst behavior under reaction conditions.
