How Does a CMOS Camera Work?

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. […]

Comparing Benchtop X-ray Microscopes

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 […]

Simple and Accessible SEM with ChemiSEM

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 […]
