Microscopy allows us to see samples so small that they are usually invisible to the human eye, offering the ability to analyze minuscule structures such as viruses and proteins. Various techniques enable microscopic imaging, each offering its advantages and distinct capabilities. This article will focus on X-ray microscopy (XRM), exploring some of its specific techniques […]
A Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is an invaluable piece of equipment in the science industry. It is a powerful, surface imaging magnification tool that uses focused electron beams to gather information from samples. The Axia ChemiSEM is a Scanning Electron Microscope manufactured by Thermo Fisher Scientific. To a novice user, traditional SEMs can be difficult […]
Complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensors are now one of the most widely used in camera technologies. Some of the advantages of CMOS technologies for camera sensors include their compact size, low-power draw, and generally cost-effective architectures.1 What makes CMOS sensors so space and power efficient is the integration of the electronics into the sensor itself. […]
There are many advantages of using X-rays microscopes for imaging applications. Unlike conventional optical microscopes, X-ray microscopes offer the potential for element selectivity in imaging, excellent resolution and sensitivity and very high contrast. X-ray microscopes can be used to image thicker samples than techniques such as electron microscopy. Using X-ray microscopes for imaging can also […]
A scanning electron microscope (SEM) involves a focused stream of electrons being projected over a surface to produce an image. The sample interacts with the electrons in the beam and this produces a range of signals that are used to gain information about the composition of the surface. In this article, we discuss the benefits […]
