From Event: SPIE Optical Engineering + Applications, 2017
When the characteristic length of a material shrink to 1 nm scale, many distinct physical phenomena, such as quantum confinement, enhanced many-body interactions, strong van der Waals inter-material couplings and ultrafast charge separation, will appear. To investigate the related fascinating low-dimensional physics, we need a tool to quantitatively link the atomic structures to the physical properties of these very small nano-materials. In this talk, I will introduce our recently developed in-situ TEM + high-sensitive ultrafast nano-optical spectroscopy technique, which combines capability of structural characterization in TEM and property characterization in ultrafast nano-optical spectroscopy on the same individual nano-materials. Several examples of using this technique to study the 1D carbon nanotube and 2D atomic layered systems will be demonstrated.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
