Using a SEM in packaging material development and analysis

By Luigi Raspolini - Oct 25, 2018

Nowadays, the packaging industry is one of the fastest growing in terms of technology advancement and employing the latest available scientific developments. The reason lies in the greater demand for products and the upscale of shipments from regional transport to worldwide delivery. To ensure that the technologies are integrated in the right way, and to verify the quality of such introductions, more advanced inspection tools are required and scanning electron microscopes (SEM) play an increasingly important role in the material development. This blog will highlight some of the most common uses of electron microscopy within this field of application.

How scanning electron microscopy is used for cosmetics research and development

By Dr. Jasmin Zahn - Mar 29, 2018

Since ancient Egyptian times, cosmetic products have been used to enhance the human appearance. Research around cosmetics therefore deals not only with the development of new substances and the analysis and enhancement of existing ones, but also with the interaction of components with tissue. In this short blog, we introduce you to three examples that show the link between research within the cosmetic industry and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

What is additive manufacturing technology? How does the process work?

By Antonis Nanakoudis - Mar 22, 2018

Additive manufacturing is a relatively new manufacturing approach that has attracted the attention of many people and industries around the world due to its unlimited and promising potential. In this blog we will describe what Additive Manufacturing (AM) is and how it works and in a follow-up blog we will explain how SEM analysis can assist in improving the quality of the AM processes.

Scanning electron microscopy and pharmaceutical research topics

By Dr. Jasmin Zahn - Mar 1, 2018

Pharmaceutical research and questions linked to drug development and applications is a very diverse topic. Also the instrumentation involved in research and development is just as diverse. In this blog we will focus on the use of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) in three different research topics.

Fabrication of photonic devices through direct laser writing: how SEM contributes

By Marijke Scotuzzi - Oct 19, 2017

Photonic devices are widely used in the physical sciences for creating, manipulating and detecting light. In the future, the challenge will be to fabricate advanced photonic devices, which will require flexibility and tunability. Fabricating these devices is not easy, as they require an advanced three-dimensional lithographic technique. Direct laser writing (DLW) is an interesting approach that aims to achieve this using a liquid crystalline photoresist as light-sensitive material.

In this blog, we will describe how photoresists are specifically designed and tested for the fabrication of elastomeric light tunable photonic devices — and how imaging with a scanning electron microscope (SEM) helped in the design improvement process.
