Symposium CH01-Characterizing Dynamic Processes of Materials Synthesis and Processing via In Situ Techniques

In-situ imaging and spectroscopy techniques have emerged as primary tools for characterizing the dynamics of materials formation. The development of in situ capabilities, such as liquid/gas cell holders for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM), has led to rapid advances in our understanding of a range of dynamic processes, that can not be fully understood via ex-situ experiments. For example, recently developed 3D fast force mapping of interfacial structures via AFM provides a deep understanding of interfacial-driven processes of self-assembly in colloidal solution. This symposium primarily focuses on studies of dynamic processes of materials synthesis, self-assembly, and processing via in situ techniques. The symposium covers a range of topics including particle nucleation, crystal growth, phase transformations, polymeric and organic/inorganic self-assembly, electrochemical processes, and interface dynamics in gases and liquids. This symposium aims to provide a platform of discussion to understand the physics and chemistry of materials formation for researchers from various fields.







Topics will include:

  • Self-assembly in colloidal, polymeric, and biomolecular systems
  • Self-assembly, oriented attachment, and nanoparticle-mediated growth
  • Hierarchical structural through nanoparticle-mediated growth and oriented attachment
  • Interface-driven processes and interface dynamics in gases and liquids
  • The interfacial structure between solid and liquid and the interplay of the solution structures
  • Mechanically, electrically, or magnetically driven processes
  • Phase transformation process and its related structure-function relationship
  • Nucleation and crystal growth from solutions, melts, and vapors
  • Developments in microscopes, data analysis and mining, and practical challenges for microscopy
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
