Lake Shore 2Dex Hall Sensors

Lake Shore are pleased to announce the release of the new 2Dex Hall sensors, offering a new level of precision and convenience for engineers. These new Hall sensors offer excellent sensitivity and are highly linear over a very wide field range. Also, the sensors have a smaller, ultra-thin active area which ensures more accurate field readings and all but eliminates planar Hall effect errors that have caused measurement offsets in current-generation 3-axis probes.

Webinar : New Advances in Nanoscale IR Spectroscopy

Thursday 21 March 2019
Melbourne (Australia) : 4:30pm
Singapore : 1:30pm
India : 11:00am
Register

IR Spectroscopy techqniue has been widely used to identify the chemical components, stufy confirmation changes in molecules and phase transition in mteraisl; and analyse strain/stress in materials and devices. However, the spatial resolution of traditional IR spectroscopy technique is limited by optical diffraction. With the latest ATR probe, the spetial resolution can be improved to several μm. However, this is still far below the requirements of today’s researches, especially in nanomaterials and life sciences.

Atomic force microscopy-based infrared spectroscopy (AFM-IR) is a newly exploited technique that overcomes the diffraction limit and achieves the nanoscale spatial resolution. In the past decade, a lot of improvements have been made to enhance the spatial resolution and detection sensitivity.

In this webinar, we will share the latest developments in AFM-IR technologies including using cantilever Q factor to enhance IR detection sensitivity in tapping mode, resonance technique to enhance photothermal IR detection sensitivity, and using IR evanescent field coupling to detect IR spectrum in water. These developments enabled us to achieve a spatial resolution of sub 10nm, sensitivity of single molecular layer, and expanded IR measurements to aqueous solution for life science researches. In addition to the technology development discussion, we will showcase extensive application examples to illustrate how the latest developments enable new researches, especially in nanomaterials, composite materials, life sciences, photonics and energy conversation.

CryoStage for AFM

Material properties change substantially as a function of temperature, from crystallisation and melting processes at high temperatures, to phase transformation and mechanical stiffening at lower temperatures.   Further energy production processes in many of today’s clean-energy materials show a strong efficiency dependence with environmental temperature.  

JPK’s CryoStage provides a unique solution to investigating the temperature dependence of materials from -120°C to +220°C.  Particularly relevant for polymers, it can also be applied to ceramics, magnetic materials, composites, energy materials, thin films, and even metals.  Using the AFM’s superior resolution, watch and study crystallisation processes and the ordering of material phases, at the nanoscale.  Use QI nanomechanical mapping capability or advanced Ramp Scripting to quantitative track stiffness and adhesive changes.
