Freeze-Fracture Transmission Electron Microscopy

Freeze-fracture transmission electron microscopy (FFTEM) is a powerful technique for imaging the nanometer-scale structure of soft condensed matter, revealing features as small as a single smectic liquid crystal layer (~ 3 nm). We use FFTEM to study the bulk and interfacial structure of equilibrium and non-equilibrium states of liquid crystals and nanocolloids.
