Scope The focus of this symposium is to discuss current research and key developments in techniques and experimental methods to measure mechanical properties of materials in situ and ex situ in application-orientated environments. These environments may include, but not limited to high temperature, cryogenic temperature, electrical and magnetic field, gas, radiation, chemical, pressure extremes, and humidity. In situ mechanical testing techniques using SEM, TEM, AFM, Raman, synchrotron, X-ray, IR, and FTIR are becoming increasingly popular for studying mechanical behavior of materials. Many such techniques have been developed to probe material response to stimuli across nano- to macro-length scales. While the practice of performing experiments inside an electron microscope to probe material response under direct observation has been around for decades, recent advances in mechanical testing instrumentation, microscopy techniques, analytical detectors, high-speed cameras, computing resources, and various types of spectroscopy are now able to provide unprecedented insight and fundamental understanding of elasticity, plasticity, fracture, wear, phase transformations, irradiation damage effects, recovery and recrystallization, and creep of materials.

The intent of the symposium is to provide a forum for researchers from national laboratories, academia, and industry to discuss research progress in the area of in operando and/or in-situ mechanical testing for nanomechanical studies, and to accelerate the development and acceptance of innovative materials and testing techniques.
