We interviewed Prof. Angus Kirkland, Professor at the Department of Materials, University of Oxford and the science director at the Electron Physical Science Imaging Centre (EPSIC), Diamond Light Source UK. We talked about the new Rosalind Franklin Institute where he performs disruptive research projects in life sciences involving physical science methods, techniques, and instruments including In Situ TEM and correlative imaging.
We interviewed Prof. María Varela del Arco, who is in charge of electron microscopy in the group GFMC at the Complutense University of Madrid. We talked about her research on, among other topics, magnetic materials and supercapacitors made possible by the DENSsolutions Lightning system.
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.
At the beginning of October, DENSsolutions installed a Climate G+ system at the Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK. The G+ is DENSsolutions’ most elaborate Climate system which allows researchers to perform In Situ Gas & Heating experiments with the option to flow mixed gases and switch between gases almost instantly.
DENSsolutions LPEM systems enable advances in Life Science. Investigating soft matter polymer assemblies and dynamic behaviour of proteins in liquid. In this article, we take a look at the LPEM research that Ruiz-Perez is doing within the Molecular Bionics lab.
DENSsolutions is proud to partner with Milexia France SAS to serve the French, Luxembourg and Wallonian market in Europe. The Milexia France SAS Scientific Instrumentation Division has been a vendor of high-tech scientific instruments since 1981. They offer expert advice, comprehensive solutions, installation and technical testing on-site. DENSsolutions will strengthen their TEM portfolio and together we can build new relationships with French-speaking research groups.
Giant Enhancement in the Supercapacitance of NiFe–Graphene Nanocomposites Induced by a Magnetic Field
The development of supercapacitors holds great promise for future energy storage devices with a high cyclability and durability which can be used in our homes, cars and mobile phones to support the transition to sustainable energy. Even though a lot of effort has been devoted to improving the energy and power densities by optimizing the internal configuration of the capacitor, there is still room for further improvement. Now, researchers..
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) hold many promises, for example in energy storage, high-performance catalysis, photovoltaics, and biomedical devices and implants. Using the Climate in situ TEM gas and heating system researchers were able to reveal the influence of pressure and temperature on the growth behaviors of carbon nanotubes at relevant conditions.
In this work the DENSsolutions in situ TEM Lightning system has been employed to study the temperature induced nucleation behavior in Ge2Se2Te5 samples In Situ. This material is used as Phase Change Memory (PCM) and the knowledge of the amorphous-to-crystallize transition and the crystallization behavior is essential to its application, especially in nanometer or sub-nanometer modern and future electronics.
