INRS will soon be getting a Movie Mode DTEM
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 Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur, 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.
