An example of how XPS surface analysis can be used in battery development, to analyse li-ion battery electrode materials for a better understanding of the SEI layer.
BlueScientific is now the official distributor for XPS from Thermo Scientific in the UK, Sweden and Denmark. XPS (X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy aka ESCA) is a quantitative surface analysis technique.
The new Bruker Dimension IconIR is a large-sample nanoscale infrared spectroscopy and chemical imaging system. It sets new standards in chemical and material property mapping with sub-10nm chemical imaging resolution.
FEG-SEM (Field Emission Gun – Scanning Electron Microscope) provides the very highest resolution imaging compared to regular SEM. It’s now available in an easy-to-use, desktop instrument: the Phenom Pharos G2.
A virtual event on 9-10 November 2021 from RMS about microscopic imaging and microanalysis of geological and archaeological materials (free to attend).
An overview of how X-Ray Diffraction is used in battery development and energy storage materials analysis.
The Bruker Q4 POLO is a new spark-OES metals analyser. It’s a compact, benchtop system, with best-in-class analysis of metals from Li to Bi, opening up new applications for a system of this size.
A case study of how SEM-EDS was used for failure analysis of thermal barrier coating in a turbojet engine, for materials development in aerospace engineering.
Gatan’s best-in-class BioContinuum imaging filter for cryo-EM is now available with EELS and EFTEM.
How to use dynamic nanoindentation characterise CMP pads. In this example, the Bruker Hysitron TS 77 Select was employed to quantitatively measure the viscoelastic properties of a hard pad.
This is a robust, reliable method for examining CMP pad surface quality and processes.
