Where we find out how our solutions accelerate research and how we can adapt to new challenges.

DENSsolutions team members together with customers from FHI Berlin, DTU Nanolab Kgs. Lyngby, ER-C Jülich, EMAT Antwerp, ETH Zürich, Johnson-Matthey Didcot, University of Limerick, Trinity College Dublin and Queen’s University Belfast.

A little over 3 years ago, the first Climate in situ gas & heating systems were installed by DENSsolutions at customer sites. Therefore, the time has come to evaluate the results obtained so far by all our European customers and to share experiences. A 2-day meeting was held in Delft, the Netherlands on 5th & 6th June 2019 to provide an open forum for both users and the DENSsolutions team to share their results and suggestions.

Dr. Michele Conroy and Dr. Jennifer Cookman from the University of Limerick sharing their future plans for Climate experiments.

Presentations and discussions

Each Climate user gave a presentation on: their in situ gas & heating research, other research using the Climate system in their departments, and plans for future research.The topics covered included catalyst research on nano-particles, carbon nano-tube growth, and materials science on lamella-type samples. Our team members also gave presentations on our latest product development and newest applications.

We value the experience and feedback that our users from different institutes and companies, as well as DENSsolutions team members, brought to the discussions. Our discussions were dynamic and covered not only in situ TEM but also experiments that used the Climate Nano-Reactor in other environments such as a Beamline or an X-ray microscope.

Dr. Manfred Schuster from Johnson Matthey sharing insights from their customized beamline experiment

During the conference, new ideas, theories and product feedback were shared so we left with a list of possible improvements for our solutions as needed by the people who use them. These included: ease-of-use items, improvements on MEMS chips, tools to improve sample drop casting, and ideas on how to improve gas & heating control.

Dr. Thomas Hansen DTU explaining on the importance of low dose imaging.

Continuing the conversation

All the participants agreed that we should continue these discussions to improve both in situ TEM research and the tools that facilitate it. DENSsolutions will enable these conversations as part of an online environment as well as by organizing new Climate user meetings. Furthermore we see possibilities to organize forums like this in the future for other products and for users from other regions.

Ronald Marx MSc, DENSsolutions

Our Climate Product Manager Ronald Marx commented at the end of the 2-day meeting:

“It was a great pleasure for me to host all these Climate users in Delft and engage in discussions that reveal both the current and the potential new benefits of doing in situ research with the system’.
