In Situ Leaders: Niels De Jonge

“I’m just really curious.”   This is the unassuming response you’ll get from Dr. Niels De Jonge if you ask about his prolific research in the fields of physics, electron microscopy, biology, and material science. If you dig a little deeper you’ll uncover the fascinating history of how an easily bored physicist changed the field … Read More

How to Prevent Lithium-ion Batteries from Exploding

New research sheds light on preventing “dead lithium” accumulation Lithium electrode growth while charging in a new dilute electrolyte (left). (Right) while charging, lithium deposits on the electrode, causing accumulation of large, crystalline dendrites that nearly completely dissolve on uncharging.   2.5 million. That’s how many phones Samsung had to recall after realizing the lithium-ion batteries … Read More

Nanoparticles – Foe or Friend?

In situ study of nanoparticle agglomeration Hematite nanoparticles ~10nm in diameter move quickly under the electron beam (left), but become more stable when they clustered together in ~50nm agglomerates (right)     We don’t know a lot about naturally occurring nanoparticles. Once thought to be a laboratory curiosity, these tiny particles are now being found … Read More

The Worlds Smallest 3-D Printer?

New Result In a world where 3-D printing and nanotechnology are becoming commonplace, Dr. Ray Unocic has discovered a way to do both simultaneously. In a recent paper in Nanoscale, Dr. Unocic and colleagues from Oak Ridge National Lab outline a technique and preliminary results for a completely new type of material printing process. Using … Read More

In Situ TEM Studies of Micron-sized All-solid-state Fluoride Ion Batteries: Preparation, Prospects, and Challenges

Making and Testing a Battery Smaller than a Grain of Pollen With the introduction of electric charging with in-situ microscopy scientists finally have the tools to study the nanoscale charging/discharging reactions that make batteries work. Producing a battery this small isn’t easy, and the preparation techniques can introduce contamination that spoil the results. Researchers at … Read More
