Abstract

Interesting structures and properties of transition metal oxides have been characterized by many techniques and used for various device applications. However, simultaneous correlation between the physical and structural properties of these materials has not been widely investigated. In this work, we will use aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy to study theses materials in atomic level. Different in situ TEM techniques were performed to test the functionality of materials. The double tilt liquid nitrogen-cooling holder was used for thermal testing and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) stage holder was used to perform electrical testing on individual nanowires.
