EMC Plenary Session, Bldg 401, Rm A1100

"Frontiers of Electron Microscopy and Spectroscopy"
Chairs: Mitra Taheri (Drexel University) and Yasuo Ito (MSD, Argonne National Laboratory)

While advances in high-resolution imaging have reached unprecedented scales in terms of spatial resolution, including the development of commercially available aberration corrected microscopes, improving temporal resolution presents a new frontier. A section of this session will focus on recent developments in ultrafast microscopy, including, but not limited to, camera technology and emerging pump-probe methods. Echoing to the revolutionary advancement of imaging capability of electron microscopy, the frontier of electron microscopy-based spectroscopy has been pushed in spatial, energy, and temporal resolutions while exploring other spectroscopic signals. This session will review recent advancement and future direction of spectroscopy and spectroscopic imaging.
