A Novel Method for In Situ Electromechanical Characterization of Nanoscale Specimens Russell C. Reid1,2, Alberto Piqué1, Wonmo Kang1,3 1Materials Science and Technology Division, US Naval Research Laboratory, 2American Society for Engineering Education—Naval Research Laboratory (ASEE-NRL), 3Leidos Corporation Isolating electrical and thermal effects on electrically assisted deformation (EAD) is very difficult using macroscopic samples. Metallic sample micro- and nanostructures together with a custom test procedure have been developed to evaluate the impact of applied current on the formation without joule heating and evolution of dislocations on these samples.
SpOT the Correct Tissue Every Time in Multi-tissue Blocks Anna Coffey1,2, Michael D. Johnson3, Deborah L. Berry3 1Center for Advanced Preclinical Research (CAPR), Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, 2Leidos Biomedical Research, Inc., 3Department of Oncology, Georgetown University The purpose of the Specimen Orientation Tag (SpOT) is to function as an orientation tool to aid in individual tissue identification in multi-tissue paraffin blocks. These protocols demonstrate how it is constructed easily from common, low-cost histology materials and serves as a reliable visual marker in paraffin blocks and sections.
