A research team working at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel confirmed with a unique infrared probe that jagged surfaces and defects found at the edges of nanosized platinum and gold particles are significant hot spots for chemical reactivity.
Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) consist of organic functional groups that spontaneously coordinate to the nanoparticle surface and form a coating layer. By varying the properties of the coordinating organic molecules researchers are able to tweak the surface properties of nanoparticles.
This webinar will provide details about the new generation of e-Flash EBSD detectors and the application fields they cover.
In this webinar, you will learn more about the Advanced Mineral Identification and Characterization System (AMICS) which is the latest software package for automated identification and quantification of minerals and synthetic phases.

Graphene oxide membranes have been receiving attention for their extremely powerful separation abilities and the ease at which it can be modified, allowing for membrane permittivity to be fine-tuned. These membranes show the potential to be used for water purification, ‘green’ gas purification and greenhouse gas capture.
The Nanospinner 24-XP electrospinning machine from Inovenso was designed to create sample nanofiber membranes that are primarily used in the air filtration and textile industries, but also in medical, medicine, chemistry, agriculture, and construction industries.
With up to three complementary technologies on one multi-functional XRF platform, the Zetium spectrometer leads the market in high-quality design and novel features for sub ppm to percentage analysis of elements from Be to Am.
The HexGen™ hexapods from Aerotech represent a vital advance in six-degree-of-freedom positioning performance. The HEX500-350HL high-load, precision hexapod is suitable for applications in high-force device manipulation, sensor testing, and x-ray diffraction.
