An electrical connector for use in electron microscopy sample holders. The electrical connector provides electrical contacts to the sample support devices which are positioned in the sample holders for electrical, temperature and/or electrochemical control.


A heating device having a heating element patterned into a robust MEMs substrate, wherein the heating element is electrically isolated from a fluid reservoir or bulk conductive sample, but close enough in proximity to an imagable window/area having the fluid or sample thereon, such that the sample is heated through conduction. The heating device can be used in a microscope sample holder, e.g., for SEM, TEM, STEM, X-ray synchrotron, scanning probe microscopy, and optical microscopy.


A support for an electron microscope sample includes a body defining a void for receiving a first micro-electronic device, and a first gasket positioned about the first surface. The first gasket further defines an arm extending at an angle away from a horizontal extending through the first micro-electronic device. In operation, the first micro-electronic device is installed onto the first gasket and the arm engages an outer facing side of the first micro-electronic device to grip the first micro-electronic device.


An electron microscope sample holder that includes at least one capillary having a sufficient inner diameter to act as a catheter pathway that allows objects that can be accommodated within the at least one capillary to be replaced or swapped with other objects. The sample holder having at least one capillary allows the user to insert and remove temporary fluidic pathways, sensors or other tools without the need to dissemble the holder.

Electron microscope support structures and methods of making and using same. The support structures are generally constructed using semiconductor materials and semiconductor manufacturing processes. The temperature of the support structure may be controlled and/or gases or liquids may be confined in the observation region for reactions and/or imaging.


An apparatus and a method for measuring and monitoring the properties of a fluid, for example, pressure, temperature, and chemical properties, within a sample holder for an electron microscope. The apparatus includes at least one fiber optic sensor used for measuring temperature and/or pressure and/or pH positioned in proximity of the sample.


A novel sample holder for specimen support devices for insertion in electron microscopes. The novel sample holder of the invention allows for the introduction of gases or liquids to specimens for in situ imaging, as well as electrical contacts for electrochemical or thermal experiments.


Methods of using temperature control devices in electron microscopes. The temperature of the device structure may be controlled to extract information about reactions and processes that was previously unobtainable.


System and method for safely controlling the containment of gas within a manifold system and the delivery of gas to a sample holder for an electron microscope for imaging and analysis.


A novel sample holder for specimen support devices for insertion in electron microscopes. The novel sample holder of the invention allows for the introduction of gases or liquids to specimens for in situ imaging, as well as electrical contacts for electrochemical or thermal experiments.
