Helium ion microscopy: a new tool for imaging novel mesoporous silica and organosilica materials

Author affiliations

Abstract

Helium ion microscopy (HIM) has been used to image mesoporous silica and organosilica for the first time. Images of chiral nematic silica, ethylenesilica, and new benzenesilica reveal the structural organization, pore dimensions and connectivity of these materials on the nanometer length scale.
