Coloration of a copper surface by nanostructuring with femtosecond laser pulses Highlights Coloration of a copper by nanostructuring with femtosecond laser pulses was studied. Surface structures with low spatial frequency were formed. Surface topology on observed areas of different colours were investigated. SEM-images were taken in secondary electron and backscattered electron mode. Reasons for the […]

In recent years there has been a huge interest in the nm scale characterisation of various materials (Minerals, Zeolites, MOFS, Aperiodic crystals, Archeological artefacts, Functional materials, Organic Pharmaceuticals, Proteins etc.). You will be shown the use of 3D Electron Diffraction (3D-ED) in the Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) and present various examples demonstrating the application of […]
We thought we’d make it easy for you to watch some of our latest webinars, so here is a round up of ones you catch watch right now and also book in for future planned webinars and online events.
WATCH NOW The combination of different analytical methods into one instrument is of great importance for the simultaneous acquisition of complementary information. Especially highly localised probing of mechanical, electrical, magnetic, chemical and crystallographic properties on the nanoscale represents a key success factor for gaining new insights in the micro and nano world. In this webinar, […]
