Currently, one of the major challenges in the automotive industry is the development of direct current (DC) electrical motors. A DC vehicle motor incorporates strong magnetic fields at the rotor location. The higher the magnetic field in a reduced volume, the better the engine efficiency factor. A research team based at JEOL France recently studied the composition of such a magnet using a FIB-SEM technique coupled with a specialized analysis software package.
The In-situ Ion Irradiation TEM (I3TEM) at Sandia National Laboratories is a JEOL 2100 microscope that has been highly modified with an array of hardware and software that makes it particularly well suited to explore fundamental mechanisms that arise from coupled extreme conditions. Examples pertaining to multibeam ion irradiation, rapid thermal cycling, and nanomechanical testing on the I3TEM are highlighted, along with prospective advancements in the field of in-situ microscopy.
In this interview, AZoM speaks to Vern Robertson, EPMA Product Manager at JEOL USA, about the benefits of using a low kV in SEM imaging.
Powerful atomic-resolution instruments and techniques at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) are revealing new information about the interaction of uranium dioxide (UO2) with water. These new insights will improve the understanding of how spent nuclear fuel will degrade in deep geologic repository environments.
