INRS acquires a groundbreaking advanced imaging infrastructure
Date:1/16/2013

Quebec City, January 15, 2013 Professor Federico Rosei, Director of the INRS Energy Materials Telecommunications Research Centre, will soon have access to a Dynamic Transmission Electron Microscope (DTEM). Unique in the world for its configuration, this equipment will fill a gap in dynamic materials imaging by simultaneously providing very high spatial and temporal resolution, a first that could revolutionize materials research. This project that combines the study of both the ultrasmall and ultrafast received a grant totalling nearly $12 million from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) Leading Edge and New Initiatives Funds and Ministre de l'Enseignement suprieur, de la Recherche, de la Science et de la Technologie (MESRST). This institutional project reunites over 160 researchers from 12 Quebec Universities, 14 additional Canadian Universities, the National Research Council and 35 additional institutions in 10 countries across four continents.

In the coming years, innovation in materials sciences will depend on researchers' ability to shed light on the intimate relationships between the nanostructures of materials and their properties. Advances in nanoscience are paving the way for new technologies, in particular in the health, energy, telecommunications, and environment sectors. This new infrastructure will combine the latest transmission electron microscope developments with the most advanced nanosecond and femtosecond laser technologies to observe the dynamic evolution of material structures. Their work will make it possible to synthesize new functional materials and improve the performance of existing materials, with potential applications for sensors, biomaterials, electronic and photonic devices, as well as water treatment and energy storage.

This new equipment will comprise three transmission electron microscopes combined into one. Its unique configuration integrates all dynamic imaging methods as well as electron spectrosco
