MSE Seminar: Vasiliki Tileli: Tiny insights into big energy-related challenges realized with electron microscopy
Kimball Hall B11
MSE Seminar Series presents:
Tiny insights into big energy-related challenges realized with electron microscopy
École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
Materials used in energy react to electrical stimuli in diverse ways. In this talk, I will discuss our efforts in developing in-situ liquid phase electron microscopy (EM) methodologies, correlating them with cryo EM and applying them to investigate the mechano-physico-chemical properties of the materials’ response to applied voltages in mixed media. I will detail our approach towards performing meaningful measurements on the active components that are responsible for the performance of systems related to energy storage and conversion.
Vasiliki Tileli received her PhD in materials science from the State University of New York at Albany working on development of statistical, quantitative models of electromagnetic signals in environmental conditions of electron microscopes. She then completed her Marie Curie Individual Fellowship at Imperial College London before moving to the Institute of Materials at EPFL where with her group she studies on a fundamental level the nanoscale properties of functional materials using in-situ electron microscopy techniques.
