Due to COVID-19, in the interests of safety we’re not currently exhibiting at events in person. However there are plenty of virtual events and webinars coming up, to keep you up to date with the scientific community. We’re also available by phone and email to answer all your queries and for remote support.


Stylus Profiling Metrology for Soft Matter
Wednesday 17th November 2021, 2pm CET
Join Bruker for a stylus profilometry webinar about measuring film thickness and depth in flexible electronic and microfluidic devices. The presentation will include evidence of how advanced stylus profiling extends to fragile surfaces such as PEDOT:PSS photovoltaic materials, PDMS microfluidic channels or amorphous-indium-gallium-zinc-oxide (IGZO) transistors. A successful solution relies on precise and low controlled force keeping topography unchanged while retaining sub-nanometer repeatability. Through these attributes, the DektakXT stylus profiler opens a wider range of applications for thickness metrology, from nm to mm.

Correlative Sub-micron IR and X-Ray Fluorescence for Molecular and Elemental Imaging of Neurons (Webinar)
Thursday 18th November 2021, 10am GMT
This webinar from Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp will feature special guest Prof. Oxana Klementieva of Lund University, Sweden. There'll be an introduction to sub-micron infrared and the breakthrough technique of O-PTIR and simultaneous Raman (IR+Raman) microscopy. Find out how sub-micron IR can be combined with synchrotron XRF for direct molecular and elemental imaging of neurons. Results have shown that in primary AD-like neurons, iron clusters co-localise with amyloid-beta sheet protein structures and oxidised lipids. Prof Oxana Klementieva will detail her recent research publication on this topic, and Dr Mustafa Kansiz will present further life science applications, including live cells, tissues and bacteria.

Understand your Steel with Automated Inclusion Analysis (Webinar)
Wednesday 24th November 2021, 8am GMT
SEM/EDX is on the way to becoming the new standard for steel inclusion analysis. Traditionally metallurgists would use a room-filling SEM, however now many choose an easy-to-use desktop SEM. Join Thermo Scientific for a live demo on the Phenom ParticleX Steel to learn about this leading technology. Part of a webinar series about particle analysis with desktop SEM.

One Tool for Complete AM Powder Characterisation (Webinar)
Wednesday 1st December 2021, 8am GMT
Characterising a powder for additive manufacturing can be a laborious, multi-step process. Information about the powder granulometry and chemical composition is critical to the print quality - did you know that an electron microscope can provide you both at the same time? Learn more about how desktop SEM is used in additive manufacturing to characterise powders for incoming quality acceptance tests, recycling and more in Thermo Scientific's webinar. Part of a webinar series about particle analysis with desktop SEM, using the Phenom ParticleX AM.
