Chongmin Wang (foreground), 2015 Paper of the Year
Congratulations to Dr. Chongmin Wang at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory on having his article chosen as the 2015 paper of the year by the editorial board of the Journal of Materials Research. The board selected the 14-page paper for its outstanding scholarship. His article summarizes the major advances in the field of in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and its application for electrochemical device studies. This technique lets scientists probe the behavior of materials under operating conditions, such as batteries during charge and discharge. Development of in situ TEM has contributed to breakthroughs in battery materials research and development. In addition, it has benefitted other research areas, as Wang notes in his paper. The paper was funded as part of PNNL's Chemical Imaging Initiative.
The award will be formally announced at the 2016 Materials Research Society Spring Meeting in Phoenix.
