Findings from University of Technology Reveals New Findings on Transmission Electron Microscopy (Direct observation of structural change in Au-incorporated carbon nanofibers during field emission process)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- A new study on Transmission Electron Microscopy is now available. According to news reporting originating from Johor, Malaysia, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "We present a direct observation of structural change in Au-incorporated carbon nanofiber (CNF) during a field emission (FE) process using an in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM)."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the University of Technology, "The TEM images and their electron diffraction pattern together with electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) indicated that the amorphous carbon structure of CNF was transformed to hollow graphitic structure catalyzed by dispersed Au particles before FE."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Thus, the in situ TEM study will be promising to reveal the formation process of nanocarbon materials by solid phase reaction depending on the catalyst metal element for metal-incorporated CNFs."
