High Impact Research #9: Cryogenic APT to-date

Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Cryogenic atom probe tomography (cryo-APT) is an emerging microscopy technique that has already led to several new insights in materials science. However, some of the challenges regarding the particularly stringent sample fabrication and preparation for cryo-APT measurements have not yet been fully outlined.

In this presentation we will review the recent advances in the development of cryo-APT, with a special focus on understanding the unique instrumentation and sample preparation techniques that will allow cryo-APT to be applied to a broad range of materials study. This session will dedicate to how cryo-APT has made and will be making enormous potential in revolutionising nanoscience across the physical, materials and life sciences disciplines.

About the presenter:

Dr. Eason Chen is a Lecturer and University of Sydney Fellow in the Australian Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis and the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering at the University of Sydney. His research interest is materials characterisation via advanced microscopy techniques (particularly cryo-APT) for the applications of hydrogen fuel. He completed his PhD (2018) at the University of Oxford after few years of industry services and his MS (2009) and BS (2007) both at National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan. His research has been funded by the Ministry of Education of Taiwan, the University of Sydney, the Australian Research Council and several international industry partnerships, for a sum of over 3 million dollars.
