Scientists characterise how flufenamic acid, a COX inhibitor, which is used in multiple industries, forms crystals from a liquid solution. The earliest stages of crystal growth are key to determining the final structure of a crystal, and scientists have visualised this process for the first time. Organic molecules were formed and grown in a liquid environment and characterised using the DENSsolutions Ocean In Situ system for Liquid Phase Electron Microscopy (LPEM).
Recently, we celebrated the installation of the first Climate G+ system ever in Australia. For this event we interviewed Dr. Bhatia. We discussed the research needs of his facility and how they will benefit from the solutions designed and manufactured by DENSsolutions.
Researchers at FHI Berlin produced excellent results with the DENSsolutions Climate holder, serial number #001. Demonstrating the stability of the Climate holder and Nano-Reactor and the compatibility with other techniques like SAED and Mass Spectroscopy.
Since the beginning of the ESTEEM3 project, in January 2019, DENSsolutions has been involved as one of the industrial partners. Now, being in the 14th month of the project, we want to share some background of the project and see what has been achieved thus far. We interviewed Lucie Guilloteau who is the project manager of ESTEEM3.
Last month, our Stream Product Manager Gin Pivak, CTO Hugo Perez Garza and Microsystems Engineer Tijn van Omme visited the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Liquid Phase Electron Microscopy (LPEM). They were there to inform the LPEM community about our Stream system which allows researchers to introduce an accurate and controlled liquid environment combined with in-situ heating or biasing possibilities.
DENSsolutions is proud to partner with Quantum Design Italy to serve the Italian market. Quantum Design has been one of the leading European distributors of high-tech instrumentation for scientific, academic and industrial research for over 45 years. DENSsolutions will strengthen their TEM portfolio with innovative MEMS based In Situ solutions and together we can build and strengthen relationships with research groups in Italy.
In situ heating TEM speeds up the characterisation process for Aluminium alloys exposed to in-service conditions
There is a big opportunity for the design and development of sustainable catalysts for low-temperature NOx removal in the steel, cement and glass industries. Researchers Dr. Yong Wang et al. from Zhejiang University made a recent breakthrough using critical information obtained by In Situ TEM to design a MnOx/CeO2 nanorod (NR) catalyst with outstanding resistance to SO2 deactivation.
DENSsolutions introduces the latest development in Liquid Phase Electron Microscopy (LPEM). At its introduction, the Stream system was equipped with biasing chips to enable electrochemistry research. Now with the introduction of dedicated heating chips, we are ready to expand and serve other fields, like life sciences.
A DENSsolutions Wildfire double tilt (DT) system with a biasing expansion has been installed at the Uppsala University, Sweden. The Wildfire DT system will be used by the group to research the phase transitions in metals and in solar cells.
