00:36:06.20 because St. Patrick's day is coming, the day that we are filming, It is necessary to make sure that the specimen is not changed substantially during the sample preparation. 00:26:29.27 And, like for crystals, the order in these structures, means that in Fourier space, 00:01:28.27 focused beams of low-energy electrons to raster along a bulky object In sample 1, the crystalline fragments were aggregated to a great extent. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is a microscopy technique in which a beam of electrons is transmitted through a specimen to form an image. 00:14:37.28 Because now there's no water, there's no problem with the vacuum. 00:08:47.25 generating contrast in that manner. 00:13:53.26 When inelastic scattering occurs, the sample gets ionized, 00:09:19.07 Ok, this is what I would call a middle of the range electron microscope. 00:21:29.11 that I have to stand on a ladder is that it has an extra piece right here. 00:24:24.22 and how each one of these two steps are carried out depends 00:35:26.16 which means that when you take different images, 00:22:33.14 This one is the deposited on a substrate in the EM grid that I showed you before, 00:19:18.20 So, here is that sample in negative stain. 00:34:15.28 and the averaging will give us now enhanced views of each of these orientations of the molecule. 00:31:04.23 And what we found was that tubulin subunits are normally interacting with a kink, Using a number of biological examples from work in the Nogales lab, the lecture then describes the capabilities of the TEM methodology. 00:13:48.11 And ultimately, and most importantly, they are very radiation sensitive. (vi) Selected area electron diffraction (SAED) allows studying the crystallographic structure of nano-objects. 00:17:55.16 You can time a certain biological process to be triggered during the process of vitrification and trap intermediates. Visualization of Biological Molecules in Their Native State by Joachim Frank. Figure 4.6. 00:09:24.08 The whole story starts up here with the electron gun, 00:29:54.07 and it stops in particular cells that are dividing very fast, Ann. 00:33:51.07 These are showing the molecule in different in-plane orientations, but also different views. 00:06:40.16 And the way this is done is in two different manners. 00:03:13.29 So this particular example comes from a section that was taken from the flagella of a sperm, 00:26:17.04 although initially, you may have low resolution. 00:35:19.05 looks say like this. So, in order to be able to look at it at once 00:35:30.13 what you get is different projections that look distinct When TEM is equipped with a cryotransfer stage, a vitrified BC sample can be transferred directly under the electron beam. While initially the high vacuum and radiation damage where thought to strongly limit its usability, the development of sample preparation techniques led to TEM playing a significant role in material sciences, physics, chemistry and biology. 00:45:24.10 So, just as a final note, imagine all the information that is contained in the tomogram that I just showed you a minute ago 00:45:05.06 if you want, in the bottleneck, but they also run between daughter and sister cells Colin A. English, ... Lizhen Tan, in Structural Alloys for Nuclear Energy Applications, 2019. 00:12:57.27 because the sample will vaporize before images were finally collected. 00:09:03.10 and this is what will ultimately cause the interference, which will mix with the unscattered wave front. 00:02:08.10 which is two hundred microns, this is about the size of these organisms. 00:06:34.15 by using these elastically scattered electrons to generate contrast in the image. In addition TEM is well suited to characterizing coarser features such as dislocations (and hence dislocation density), dislocation loops, voids, larger precipitates, and grain size. Oxford University Press, 2006. 00:37:22.24 this is a gallery. Working principle of TEM. 00:07:22.18 Actually, what I'm showing you here is the positive of the image. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is a versatile technique to analyse the size, morphology, crystallographic structure, and chemical composition of a wide range of nanomaterials (NM). 00:20:33.09 You can see that the column is both longer and wider. 00:08:44.12 and the unscattered electrons interfere, This is more like the real image 00:20:26.02 Alright, now, this beast is what I would call a state of the art transmission electron microscope. Electron Crystallography of Biological Macromolecules by Robert 00:16:42.12 and then kept at very low temperatures, the temperature of liquid nitrogen. 00:14:24.06 of a very heavy atom, typically uranium. The sample for TEM is usually required to be sliced into an extremely thin section (<100 nm) and pretreated with heavy metals (staining) before visualization. 00:24:04.05 If we can get these type of images now, 00:32:55.05 are used to obtain high resolution information on a sample. 00:17:21.07 through the process of inelastic scattering are not able to move very fast. 00:09:30.25 They shoot down the column, which is maintained at very high vacuum 00:24:19.29 This process is what we call reconstruction 00:45:51.25 so that anybody, irrespective of what you work on, Naushad, in Nanomaterials for Solar Cell Applications, 2019. 00:11:55.10 I get often asked what kind of resolution can the TEM reach. 00:20:42.11 have higher energy; as they're moving faster, they need bigger electromagnetic lenses to deflect them. 00:28:03.18 So, let me show you some examples, let's go back to microtubules. 00:03:22.16 the one that could have been coming up the oviduct that I showed you before. 00:43:49.15 there's so much going on. 00:41:20.14 which in this case is again done by back projection. 00:12:09.09 this corresponds to a thin, nanocrystal of silica, 00:42:56.22 and I'm going to show it to you as a series of slices 00:31:49.08 was that the protofilaments here are paired up and within one pair Whether you are interested in the ultrastructure of cells and organelles, or in the detailed molecular structure of biological macromolecules, different modalities of TEM can generally be applied to your system of interest. I'm going to start by giving you 00:22:39.04 typically covered with carbon, and it's either embedded in negative stain 00:32:22.17 into an open sheet that then closes into a tube.
