About DENSsolutions

It’s widely accepted that nanotechnology is essential to solve many of the global challenges which human society is facing today. These modern day challenges, influenced by a growing population size, increased energy demand and climate change are factors which push scientists to solve macro problems, starting from the bottom-up! Scientists all over the world strive to understand materials down to the atomic level. The Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) has been proven an indispensable tool to capture essential nano-structural information. However, the TEM so far had inherent limitations because it is limited to post-mortem characterization of samples in a static and ultra-high vacuum environment. What if there were a way to look into the nano-world and observe dynamic phenomena, for example related to materials in chemical reactors, aeroplane engines or solar panels?
Using the latest in MEMS technology, DENSsolutions has engineered this into a reality by introducing dynamic stimuli (heat, electrical bias, gas & liquid) to the TEM and eliminating the vacuum environment. With the help of our range of in situ TEM solutions, scientists from all over the world can now record the dynamics of their sample and understand the unknown. This new research is called in situ TEM. In doing so, DENSsolutions is helping its customers to change the world, one atom at a time!
DENSsolutions has experienced a rapid growth over the last five years and is preparing to ramp up even further over the next years. For that reason, we want to provide our customers with world class system support and service.
