Wildfire Testimonials

“For the atomic scale investigation of small nanostructures at high temperatures, the reduction of sample drift is of paramount importance. The new generation of DENSsolutions Wildfire Nanochips offer the ideal solution for this due to their small and reproducible bulging. Their robustness also enables an easy and safe transfer of the specimen lamella of any form or sample geometry.”

Markus Terker

PhD Student, Paul Drude Institute for Solid State Electronics, Berlin, Germany

“The DENSsolutions Wildfire chip enabled an exact and fast temperature regulation with a homogeneous heat distribution, allowing us to investigate the decomposition process of Pt nanowires in situ. Without it, it would not have been possible to follow the transformations of the nanowires directly and to link them to the internal changes in the nanostructure.”

PhD Student, Technical University of Darmstadt, Darmstadt, Germany

“In-situ Transmission Electron Microscopy is one of the most exciting avenues for future breakthroughs in the characterization of dynamic processes in nano scale materials and devices. The DENSsolutions sample heating systems have performed impressively in experiments carried out in the Ernst Ruska-Centre.”
Professor Rafal Dunin-Borkowski

Director, Ernst Ruska-Centre (ER-C) Forschungezentrum Jülich, Germany

“The temperature accuracy and spatial stability of the DENSSolutions heating holder are truly impressive – much better than alternatives we tried.  Our research on liquid dynamics with time-resolved diffraction would be impossible without it.”
Professor Paul Voyles

Materials Science and Engineering University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA

“The DENSsolutions holder impressed me with high resolution imaging and extreme stability at high temperatures. It is exciting that the picture taken with the DENSsolutions holder shows superior performance compared to other holders. As long as we have got the DENSsolutions holder, we have got the in-situ world spinning in our hand.”
Professor Xiaoyan Zhong

Tsinghua University Beijing, China

“In-situ TEM provides a new dimension in dynamic structural studies of a range of technologically important materials. The Department of Materials at Oxford will use the DENSsolutions sample heating holder in a number of projects related to catalysis and low dimensional carbon materials. We have chosen this solution for its unrivaled stability and control.”
Professor Angus Kirkland

Professor of Materials University of Oxford, United Kingdom

“This new solution has outperformed our expectations and greatly expanded our research capabilities.”
Professor Wang Yong

Department of Materials Science and Engineering Zhejiang University, China

“Stability and reliable temperature read-out during environmental transmission electron microscopy (ETEM) experiments are of utmost importance when studying dynamics on the nanoscale in gaseous environments. The center for Electron Nanoscopy at the Technical University of Denmark and DENSsolutions are collaborating on detailed studies at the atomic level of temperature dependent processes in the presence of gas.”
Professor Jakob Birkedal Wagner

DTU Cen Technical University of Denmark, Denmark

“The heating holders from DENSsolution are an extremely important asset to our in situ TEM equipment. They not only allow us to perform delicate high-resolution TEM studies at elevated temperatures but enable fast heating and quenching which is extremely useful for our TEM studies of phase transformations and diffusion phenomena.”
Professor Erdmann Spiecker

Institute of Micro- and Nanostructure Research CENEM FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany

“Nanoscience evolves into nanotechnology as a plethora of functional nanocrystals are integrated into functional devices. The thermal stability of nanocrystal components is thereby of paramount importance. The heating holder from DENSsolutions reveals atomic-resolution detail at elevated temperatures, thereby providing invaluable insights for developing durable, high-performance applications.”
Dr. Marijn A. van Huis

Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science Utrecht University, The Netherlands

“Aberration-corrected HR-(S)TEM has become an indispensable tool in order to unveil structure – property relations in nanoscopic objects at the atomic level. The unrivaled mechanical stability and high heating rates provided by the heating holders from DENSsolutions render them equal value partners to this technique and have paved the way to gaining a better understanding of the thermodynamics and kinetics in small systems.”
Dr. B. Rellinghaus

Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research IFW Dresden, Germany

Pictures speak a thousand words and videos from in-situ TEM experiments give visual evidence of many exciting processes at the atomic scale that one could only imagine in the past. I am glad that I’ve had the opportunity to work with the heating holders from DENSsolutions to study such phenomenon in Aluminum Alloys.”
