Climate in situ TEM gas & heating series

From DENSsolutions

The Climate in situ TEM gas & heating series offers a high pressure gas environment at elevated temperature inside a sealable nano-reactor. Enabling the direct characterization of a solid-gas reaction at atomic resolutions that can now be controlled and studied in real-time.

Gas pressure range up to 1 bar
Mixing up to 3 gases
Nano-reactor static and flow modes
EDX compatible
Mass spectrometer (optional)

All DENSsolutions systems use patented Nano-Chip MEMS Technology

Nano-Chips are state-of-the-art functional sample carriers that replace traditional TEM Cu grids. Based on Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), they offer the unique ability to expand your application space and control the environment and stimuli locally on the Nano-Chip. Each Nano-Chip creates a micro-scale laboratory environment within your TEM. Due to its very low mass and minimal power consumption, the response times are extremely fast and performance highly reliable.

Unique MEMS Design for Optimal Stability

Nano-Chips are fabricated to ensure a stable, chemically inert and electrically insulated environment.

Heat at the Source

Localizing the heating to the same scale dimensions of your sample, ensures the greatest control, offers homogeneous temperature and maximizes the temperature reliability.

Controllable Response

Easy-to-use software for operational modes, custom profiling, real time temperature output and complete data logging.

Reliable Output

Robust localized closed-loop temperature feedback offers the ultimate in sample stability, temperature response time & accuracy.

Long Life-Time

> 90 hours at elevated temperatures without affecting your TEM performance.

Application Specific Fabrication

A range of Nano-Chip support film options to suit all application requirements.

Gas catalysis
Fuel-cell research
Growth of nano-structures
Atomic layer deposition
Solid state / gas reactions

"In-situ TEM provides a new dimension in dynamic structural studies of a range of technologically important materials. The Department of Materials at Oxford will use the DENSsolutions sample heating holder in a number of projects related to catalysis and low dimensional carbon materials. We have chosen this solution for its unrivaled stability and control."
