At the beginning of October, DENSsolutions installed a Climate G system at the Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK. 

“We are very excited to have the Climate system in-house. It all began about 3 years ago when I started describing these new amazing holders to my colleagues in the Chemistry department. It took some time but couldn’t be happier! We are really looking forward to trying the different experiments that we have been designing for so long… Now it’s time to get to work and hopefully won’t break too many chips on the way!”

Applications

The system will be mainly used by Dr. Miryam Arredondo-Arechavala and her group to study ferroelectrics and other functional materials. Alongside this, it will help accelerate research on ionic liquids performed by the QUILL Research Centre (Queen’s University Belfast’s Ionic Liquid Laboratories) and other catalyst projects at Queen’s University Belfast.

The DENSsolutions Climate holder inserted in the Talos TEM for the first time.

Installation and first experiment

The system was installed in less than two days by our Climate product manager Ronald Marx. After this, Marx provided hands-on training for the new group of users. The team was able to start their first In Situ Gas & Heating experiment using their own sample of Zeolite particles which was dropcasted on to the Climate Nano-Reactor. Seeing the first results created a lot of enthusiasm among the group of principal investigators and their colleagues from the chemistry department.
