From Stars to Atoms: Discovering the Wonders of Nanoworld
In high school, I was fascinated by astronomy and used telescopes to gaze at the vast cosmos. Now, as a materials scientist, I use electron microscopes to explore the tiny realm of atoms and molecules. Studying the nanoscale is not only a way to satisfy our curiosity, but also a means to create new technologies that can improve our lives. We are on an exciting journey to the frontiers of science and innovation, and hopefully, we will reach them with compassion and not conflict.
Microscopy & Microanalysis 2024 Accepting Submissions
C05 - Correlative Microscopy Using Light, Electron, and X-ray Microscopy Correlative microscopy can be a powerful tool to examine both biological and material samples across scales. Combining different imaging modalities with the powerful array of molecular probes available allows researchers to gain insights into dynamic processes which otherwise would be difficult to observe. This symposium will discuss recent breakthroughs in correlative light, electron, and soft X-ray microscopy and techniques for biological and material research, particularly in cryogenic and in-situ settings. Presentations in this symposium will demonstrate technical advances, new instrumentation, and novel data handling workflows used to provide correlative biological structures, micro/nanostructural transformation in materials, and environmental processes.
Call for Papers: Crystallization and Assembly at Interfaces
This MRS Advances special issue will highlight recent advances in the crystallization and assembly of atoms, molecules, and particles at interfaces, with a particular focus on mechanistic approaches developed to understand the underlying pathways for materials design and development. New results in the thermodynamics, kinetics, and evolution pathways of interfacial crystallization and assembly will be particularly encouraged.
Communicate Your Research to Kids by Writing for Frontiers for Young Minds
Frontiers for Young Minds believes that the best way to make cutting-edge science discoveries available to younger audiences is to enable young people and scientists to work together to create articles that are both top quality and exciting. We are committed to providing high-quality, plain-language articles about cutting-edge science. Researchers have a chance to reframe their own recent research and publications into language that can be understood by a younger audience. Authors need to respond to and integrate the feedback provided by their Young Reviewers.
