Dr. Robert Klie selected as a 2021 Fellow for the Microscopy Society of America

Microscopy Society of America Announces the Class of 2021 Fellows

Six to be inducted at the Microscopy & Microanalysis 2021 meeting held virtually this August.

Adapted from the original article by the Microscopy Society of America on May 6, 2021 –

The Microscopy Society of America (MSA) will induct six members of the Society as the Class of 2021 Fellows including UIC Professor of Physics, Dr. Robert Klie. Dr. Robert Klie, has been selected “For his essential contributions to the fields of atomic-resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy, electron energy-loss spectroscopy and in-situ heating/cooling techniques solving materials problems in oxide thin-films, catalysts and superconductors.”

The honor will be conferred on August 4, 2021, during the Microscopy & Microanalysis 2021 (M&M 2021) virtual meeting. The MSA Fellow designation annually recognizes senior distinguished members of the Society who have made significant contributions to the advancement of the field of microscopy and microanalysis through a combination of scientific achievement and service to the scientific community.

The Microscopy Society of America was founded as the Electron Microscope Society of America in 1942, a time of rapid development for an instrument that promised, for the first time, better resolving power than that of the traditional light microscope. The Society adopted its current name on its 50th anniversary, to reflect the diversity of microscopy techniques represented by its membership. Today, a variety of microscopes are capable of imaging individual atoms and providing chemical information to identify what kind of atom is being imaged, while a variety of microscopes of lower resolving power continue to play an enabling role in understanding the world around us at a microscopic scale. The Microscopy Society of America champions all forms of microscopy and the development of new imaging technologies through its annual meeting, its publications, and its educational outreach.
