Title

Cinematic molecular science explored by electron microscopic video imaging

Abstract

Advances in microscopy with high spatial- and time-resolution have ushered in the era of “cinematic molecular science", in which dynamic behaviors of organic and inorganic molecules can be studied through real-time cinematographic images. We established a method named single-molecule atomic-resolution time-resolved electron microscopy (SMART-EM) for observation of stochastic molecular dynamics, such as structural transformation, molecular assembly processes, chemical reactions, and nanomechanical motions on a single molecule basis. This method allows us to understand the behavior of molecules as statistics of observations of individual molecules, which could only be studied as an averaged information of many molecules in conventional chemical analysis. In this seminar, I will introduce the principle of SMART-EM imaging and its application to chemical research of various materials.
