In Situ Electron Microscopy of Liquids (the Nanoaquarium)

nAq

Imaging bubble nucleation, growth, and departure with the nano-resolution of the electron microscope. The experiments were carried out with the nanoaquarium (left, top) and in collaboration with Dr. Frances M. Ross from the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center.
