Professor Frances Ross gave a lecture entitled "Microscopy in motion: understanding how crystals grow through electron microscopy movies" at 15:00 GMT/10:00 Eastern Standard Time/17:00 Israel Standard Time/12:00 Brazil/10:00 Toronto.
Registration to this lecture was free.
The International Microscopy Lecture Series is a collaborative undertaking by four International Microscopy Societies (the Royal Microscopical Society, the Microscopical Society of Canada and the Israel Society for Microscopy and the Brazilian Society of Microscopy and Microanalysis).

Frances M. Ross received her B.A. in Physics and Ph.D. in Materials Science from Cambridge University, UK. Her postdoc was at A.T.&T. Bell Laboratories, using in situ electron microscopy to visualize silicon oxidation and dislocation dynamics, after which she joined the National Center for Electron Microscopy, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, investigating other processes in situ including anodic etching of Si. She then moved to the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center where she imaged the growth of nanoscale materials using a microscope with deposition and focused ion beam capabilities, developed liquid cell microscopy for visualizing electrochemical processes, and measured growth and transport properties in a combined focused ion beam-scanning tunneling microscope system. She joined the MIT Department of Materials Science and Engineering in 2018 where her research continues to focus on nanostructure self-assembly, liquid cell microscopy, epitaxy and electrochemical processes.
