Home > Press > First-ever videos show how heat moves through materials at the nanoscale and speed of sound: Groundbreaking observations could help develop better, more efficient materials for electronics and alternative energy Abstract: Using a state-of-the-art ultrafast electron microscope, University of Minnesota researchers have recorded the first-ever videos showing how heat moves through materials at the nanoscale traveling at the speed of sound. This video made with the University of Minnesota ultrafast electron microscope (UEM) shows the initial moments of thermal-energy motion in an imperfect semiconducting material. The video shows nanoscale waves of energy, called phonons, moving at about 6 nanometers (0.000000006 meters) per picosecond (0.000000000001 second). Credit: College of Science and Engineering The research, published today in Nature Communications, provides unprecedented insight into roles played by individual atomic and nanoscale features that could aid in the design of better, more efficient materials with a wide array of uses, from personal electronics to alternative-energy technologies. Energy in the form of heat impacts all technologies and is a major factor in how electronic devices and public infrastructure are designed and engineered. It is also the largest form of waste energy in critical applications, including power transmission and especially transportation, where, for example, roughly 70 percent of the energy in gasoline is wasted as heat in automobile engines. Materials scientists and engineers have spent decades researching how to control thermal energy at the atomic level in order to recycle and use it to dramatically increase efficiencies and ultimately drive down the use of fossil fuels. Such work would be greatly aided by actually watching heat move through materials, but capturing images of the basic physical processes at the heart of thermal-energy motion has presented enormous challenges. This is because the fundamental length scales are nanometers (a billionth of a meter) and the speeds can be many miles per second. Such extreme conditions have made imaging this ubiquitous process extraordinarily challenging. To overcome these challenges and image the movement of heat energy, the researchers used a cutting-edge FEI Tecnai™ Femto ultrafast electron microscope (UEM) capable of examining the dynamics of materials at the atomic and molecular scale over time spans measured in femtoseconds (one millionth of a billionth of a second). In this work, the researchers used a brief laser pulse to excite electrons and very rapidly heat crystalline semiconducting materials of tungsten diselenide and germanium. They then captured slow-motion videos (slowed by over a billion times the normal speed) of the resulting waves of energy moving through the crystals. "As soon as we saw the waves, we knew it was an extremely exciting observation," said lead researcher David Flannigan, an assistant professor of chemical engineering and materials science at the University of Minnesota. "Actually watching this process happen at the nanoscale is a dream come true." Flannigan said the movement of heat through the material looks like ripples on a pond after a pebble is dropped in the water. The videos show waves of energy moving at about 6 nanometers (0.000000006 meters) per picosecond (0.000000000001 second). Mapping the oscillations of energy, called phonons, at the nanoscale is critical to developing a detailed understanding of the fundamentals of thermal-energy motion. "In many applications, scientists and engineers want to understand thermal-energy motion, control it, collect it, and precisely guide it to do useful work or very quickly move it away from sensitive components," Flannigan said. "Because the lengths and times are so small and so fast, it has been very difficult to understand in detail how this occurs in materials that have imperfections, as essentially all materials do. Literally watching this process happen would go a very long way in building our understanding, and now we can do just that." ### In addition to Flannigan, researchers involved in the study are University of Minnesota materials science graduate student Daniel R. Cremons and chemical engineering graduate student Dayne A. Plemmons. The research was funded primarily by the National Science Foundation through the University of Minnesota Materials Research Science and Engineering Center.

In all instances, delivery partners observed that the user analytics provided by SAP UEM served as the single source of truth for measuring user experience and adoption. “Britehouse has obtained extensive value in the use of SAP UEM for the measurement of benefits derived during project implementation,” said Caren du Toit of Britehouse Consulting, a division of Dimension Data. “Furthermore, during the run phase, SAP UEM provides us with great insight into process adherence, the maturity of the users as well as their capacity. We believe that every customer will benefit from using SAP UEM.” “Supporting complex product rollouts across diverse geographic locations, SAP UEM provides the intelligence required to promote successful user adoption and maximize the utilization of HCM technology initiatives in global organizations,” said Paul Pearce, managing director of GP Strategies. “SAP UEM should be considered in every organizational change management (OCM) and end-user adoption analysis project before a solution is deployed. This tool provides the intelligence required to promote and create the very best user experience possible while maximizing end-user adoption and reducing the risk in deploying technology.” A solid change management strategy is an essential ingredient in the successful migration of a company’s HR processes to the cloud. As best practices have shown, this strategy must include a plan to ensure employee adoption of the new solutions and processes, as well as continually drive their engagement. This can only be achieved with the ability to accurately measure user experience, adoption and engagement. SAP UEM has built-in key performance indicators (KPIs) that have enabled customers to isolate adoption gaps in specific application modules, functionality or processes – and then address them in a targeted fashion, whether through process redesign, user training or improved communication. One of the factors that can inhibit adoption of any solution is inadequate training. This is especially the case for implementations of SAP SuccessFactors solutions, which involve significant changes in the underlying HR processes. Customers must not only standardize their processes, but also disseminate best practices to their employees and build an effective communication plan around these changes. Customers that used SAP UEM during their implementations of SAP SuccessFactors solutions were able to identify adoption gaps in very specific areas of the solution, and then address them by delivering targeted training to selected audiences. Because implementing SAP SuccessFactors solutions is not merely a technical implementation project, but also a process optimization project, it is vital that companies have a strategy in place for redefining their HR processes towards standardization. An HR department going through an implementation must be ready to quickly adapt and address inefficiencies discovered at any point throughout the project. This requires accurate metrics, which in turn enable continual improvement. Customers using SAP UEM were able to use its data as an early warning system, to identify process efficiency gaps during their rollouts of SAP SuccessFactors solutions and mitigate the associated risks.

Despite extensive research efforts over the past few decades, detailed information about surface-dynamical processes (e.g., charge-carrier trapping and recombination) is still extremely limited. A better understanding of surface-dynamical processes is therefore urgently needed to address various fundamental problems related to the performance of solar cells (and many other optoelectronic devices). In particular, one of the largest challenges in this field is the need to selectively map the ultrafast dynamics of charge carriers on material surfaces and interfaces. In the past, such selective mapping has been impractical with conventional time-resolved laser techniques (e.g., time-resolved laser spectroscopy and static-electron imaging). This is because these methods are limited by the laser's relatively large penetration depth. As a consequence, these techniques can only be used to record bulk information. Although many advances have been made in both the electron microscopy and laser spectroscopy communities to achieve very high spatial and temporal resolutions, it is still extremely difficult to obtain both simultaneously (i.e., in one experiment). Nonetheless, over the past decade, a novel process—known as four-dimensional ultrafast electron microscopy (4D-UEM)—has been developed to provide high-resolution dynamical information in both space and time.1–6 In 4D-UEM, the excellent spatial resolution of an electron microscope is combined with ultrafast electron pulses (generated from a femtosecond optical pulse). However, the majority of 4D-UEM studies conducted so far have involved the transmission mode of electron microscopy.7–9 Although transmission electron microscopy (TEM) provides excellent spatial resolution, it is not well suited to the study of ultrafast dynamical processes at the surface and interfaces of photoactive materials. In our work,10 we have therefore developed a second-generation 4D-UEM approach in which scanning electron microscopy is implemented. In this adapted technique—scanning ultrafast electron microscopy (S-UEM)—we continue to use the ‘photon pump-photoelectron probe’ scheme that was developed for TEM-based 4D-UEM, but we rely on the detection of secondary electrons (SEs). The SEs are emitted only from the first few nanometers of the material surface and we can thus record time-resolved SE images (snapshots) of the surfaces, with nanometer-scale (spatial) and sub-picosecond (temporal) resolutions. We illustrate the scheme for the S-UEM method in Figure 1. In this case, the material surface is excited by a clocking optical pulse and the changes are imaged with a pulsed electron probe. The SEs are thus emitted from the surface of the photoactive material in a manner that is extremely sensitive to the local electron/hole density. In this way, we can obtain direct (and controllable) dynamical information about the localization of electrons and holes near the interfaces and heterojunctions. To date, we have used our S-UEM technique in several studies. For example, we have obtained time-resolved snapshots (in space and time) for single crystals of cadmium selenide (CdSe) as well as films of its powder. Our images clearly show how the morphological steps, surface defects, grains, and nanostructured features on the material surfaces can control the overall charge-carrier recombination dynamics.11, 12 In another application of our approach, we have examined the charge-carrier dynamics on the surface of indium gallium nitride (InGaN) nanowires.13 For instance, we demonstrated that it is possible to visualize the energy-loss dynamics and carrier spreading on the surface of the nanowires in real space (see Figure 1). Moreover, we identified the possible deactivation channels and the mechanism of SE energy loss in the system. In particular, we were able to model the variation in the SE signal (in time and space) to extract fundamental material parameters that describe the carrier relaxation and diffusion processes in the nanomaterials. We also selectively mapped the carrier recombination on the surface of these nanowires, before and after surface passivation with octadecylthiol. Our SE snapshots illustrate that the carrier recombination on the surface of the nanowires is significantly slowed down after the surface treatment. This provides us with clear evidence that the surface defects were minimized upon passivation. In addition, this provides an explanation for the superior performance of optoelectronic devices (made from InGaN nanowires) after surface passivation.14 In separate work,15 we used our S-UEM technique to make a major breakthrough in mapping of charge-carrier dynamics on the surface of quaternary copper indium gallium selenide (CuInGaSe) nanocrystals, which are commonly used in solar and optoelectronic devices. Our time-resolved images show how surface treatment with high-band-gap materials (i.e., zinc sulfide) can strongly control the overall carrier relaxation process on the surfaces of these semiconductor materials. These snapshots reveal that the carrier dynamics are slowed down by a factor of two, which means that the density of the trap states is significantly reduced after surface treatment with the inorganic layer of zinc sulfide. In summary, we have developed a second-generation adaptation of 4D-UEM that incorporates a scanning electron microscope. With our technique we can obtain time-resolved SE images (snapshots) of photoactive material surfaces and interfaces to investigate their charge-carrier dynamics with unprecedented spatial and temporal resolutions. So far, we have used our S-UEM approach in a number of studies, e.g., to examine CdSe crystals, InGaN nanowires, and CuInGaSe nanocrystals. Our results indicate the importance of surface treatments for controlling charge-carrier dynamics. We are now planning to image—in real space and time—the surface and interfaces of a wide range of systems that are relevant to emerging photovoltaic technologies (e.g., metal chalcogenide and hybrid inorganic-organic lead halide perovskite solar cells). This work will provide us with a profound understanding of the microscopic mechanism of charge transfer and separation. The results may also allow us to minimize carrier trapping at the interface, and to thus optimize the performances of the devices. 8. M. A. Becker, J. G. Radich, B. A. Bunker, P. V.
