An area of Pt thin film deposited on the surface of a polished fine grained sample. Subjected to tensile mechanical stress, substrate and thin film show a different plastic behavior. Mixed together and material information was obtained by the use of the solid state below the lens detector in addition to beam deceleration.

Capturing and storing carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases deep underground is one of the most promising options for reducing the effects of energy production on the earth. Scientists at PNNL are using electron microscopes to understand the reaction of CO2 and minerals found underground. SEM image shows the aftermath of fayalite reacting with supercritical CO2 to form siderite, thereby capturing the CO2 in a solid, stable form. Research was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.

Hydroxyapatite is a form of calcium phosphate that has a large number of applications such as bone implants, and drug delivery systems. For each application, the use of calcium based materials is optimized by specifying their geometry, dimension, density, pore size, mechanical strength, purity, and chemical phase.

Nanostructured hydroxyapatite powder with biopolymers. Microparticles formed by nanoparticles of hydroxyapatite crystals, with needle shape and stabilized with polymer surfactants, resulting in a structure similar to a blackberry. In the field of regenerative medicine, there is a great use of this biomaterial due to the similarity to the main inorganic constituent of natural bone and teeth. The synthetic hydroxyapatite has excellent biocompatibility and bioactivity to be used as a suitable bone substitute.

Copper chalcogenide nanostructure is a promising material for sensors, catalysis, and solar energy conversion. When we can control their assembled structure, the range of application can be explored. This is a scanning electron microscope (SEM) image of copper chalcogenide assembled from leaves to flowers.

Micro Electrical Mechanical System (MEMS) microchip. Showing the large depth of field possible with our microscope, the popup mountain device is visible raised in comparison to the chip as a whole. This device is powered solely by the electron beam itself, using a technique know as micro charge pump actuation.
