Acquiring counted 4D STEM with the Gatan Metro Camera! Gatan has run their first experiment on the new Metro™ counting camera. This is a great tool for capturing 4D STEM data due to its low noise, size and speed. In this experiment they showed 4D STEM data from a BN sample, captured in 33 seconds […]
Combine the power of SEM and XPS with the CISA Workflow! The Thermo Scientific™ CISA Workflow allows you to accurately add chemical information with high resolution from XPS to the structural information from the microscope. Utilising the CISA Workflow is beneficial to materials scientists who research a wide range of materials, including: Batteries Polymers Catalysts […]
Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp announce their new mIRage-LS sub-500nm IR spectroscopy system This new product combines Raman and co-located Fluorescence Microscopy with sub-micron IR in a single platform. It uniquely combines the benefits of fluorescence microscopy to support fast, easy targeting of molecular features of interest with sub-micron IR spectroscopy to characterise the molecular structure of […]
New advances in infrared spectroscopy offer improved spatial resolution, say researchers Three research papers exploring the use of infrared spectroscopy, both through label-free mid-infrared spectroscopic imaging (MIRSI) and optical photothermal infrared (O-PTIR) spectroscopy, have led to exciting advances in their fields. The research establishes the potential for these advanced techniques to investigate bone composition with […]
At BlueScientific, we are all about helping the community around us as well as raising money for charities. This year one of our two Directors , Tom Warwick, will be taking part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon on the 3rd of April 2022. He will be raising money for Shelter, for every £1 donated, […]
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.
