Why SEM is the most suitable microscopy technique for fiber analysis

By Karl Kersten - Sep 1, 2017

Fibers are all around us. Different types of fibers exist, but in most cases we do not notice them because they are used in a product. In case an object is much longer as it is wide we consider it a fiber. Fibers have specific properties for the product in which they are used. This blog will describe the different ways how these fibers can be classified and how their performance can best be analysed. Hint: it has something to do with putting fibers under a specific type of microscope. You're about to discover the most suitable microscopy technique for fiber analysis, so do read on!

Why the plastics industry relies heavily on microscopy analysis

By Luigi Raspolini - May 26, 2017

Ever since oil became fundamental to industry, scientists and engineers from all around the world have carried out more and more research into how different organic molecules can be combined in certain patterns to obtain new materials with amazing properties. Commonly called plastics, they are known to the scientific community as polymers — chemical compounds with a highly-engineered chemical structure and composition. The analysis of these compounds is crucial in helping to improve polymer production processes. This article discusses how electron microscopy can provide the analysis that polymer developers need to improve product quality significantly.

How this engineering company supercharged their R&D process

By Karl Kersten - Dec 9, 2016

As device dimensions are shrinking, researchers are required to work on nanoscale levels. As a result, new technology is needed to create and evaluate structures. Luckily in turn, the physical size of this technology is getting smaller too.

How new materials can help minimize environmental damage

By Dr. Jasmin Zahn - Nov 29, 2016

In science, efforts are rising exploring options that help minimize environmental damage. To understand how environmental damage can be minimized it is worthwhile to look into new materials. We would like to show you an example taken from fiber development to illustrate the possibilities new materials provide. This example is particularly interesting for anyone working in the materials science field.

Do you have repetitive SEM work? Automate it!

By Ruud Bernsen - Oct 5, 2016

Obtaining images is what it is all about in the microscopy business. While searching for that one particle or defect is part of the job, doing this for hundreds of particles or samples is time-consuming work and might not be very challenging. So why not automate your search and image acquisition routine?

STOP outsourcing your SEM work — get your personal SEM!

By Karl Kersten - Oct 4, 2016

Are you a lab operator who wants to stop outsourcing and buy your own Scanning Electron Microscope? Then you’ve probably already calculated that a personal SEM is a worthwhile capital investment. But the operational costs are just as important too: all the ongoing equipment expenses related to an SEM like the facilities, its maintenance, and operators.
