Katie’s research is focused on the development and use of in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques to understand the structural/chemical changes to nanomaterials upon external stimulus. At CINT, available in situ holders include the nanoindentation, STM, AFM, heating, and a microfluidic liquid cell. Previous work was dedicated to characterizing the structure and growth of nanoparticles in solution using a hermetically sealed liquid cell within the TEM. Current activities are dedicated to the implementation of the electrochemical cell discovery platform for high resolution imaging of anode and cathode electrode materials during lithiation cycling.
