A NANOFABRICATED MEASUREMENT PLATFORM FOR QUANTITATIVE TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY (TEM) IN FLUIDS

Disclosed is a system, comprising a series of devices, for encapsulating and obtaining high­ resolution imaging and spectroscopic measurements of samples in a fluid (gas or liquid) environment in the transmission electron microscope (TEM).  The system comprises a nanofabricated chip which enables the fluid environment of interest to be separated from the vacuum of the TEM, and, in various embodiments, allows for fluid flow, mixing, heating, and the application of voltages for, e.g. electrochemical studies, and a holder, compatible with the TEM, that allows for the various inputs from the exterior of the TEM to be applied to the holder.
