Image analysis of particles is one of the key methods for particle characterization. This article discusses the major steps during the image analysis of particles.
Crystallography provides insight into the structure and properties of materials at the atomic level. While X-ray diffraction has traditionally dominated crystallography, Raman spectroscopy is now emerging as a powerful complementary tool for studying crystalline systems and advancing our understanding of materials.
The surface topography of a material provides information on its mechanical and chemical characteristics, which are crucial in determining its applicability. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is a robust analytical technique often employed to study the surface topography of the majority of materials. This article provides an overview of AFM and its application in surface-topography imaging.
Here, we explore the current applications of Raman spectroscopy and look at how the field is developing. We evaluate the global market for this analytical tool and consider how it may change in the near future.
As space missions generate exponentially more data and commercial activity in space, we are reaching the limits of what radio can handle. As a result, engineers are now looking to harness the power of laser beams, offering a solution to the growing demands of space communication.
Green lasers have undeniably elevated the capabilities of LiDAR technology, enabling precise and efficient 3D mapping of our surroundings. Their enhanced visibility, compatibility with silicon-based detectors, and versatility have positioned them as a driving force behind the rapid proliferation of LiDAR across industries.
As spectrographic technology evolves, researchers gain a deeper understanding of the origins and evolution of cosmic structures across time and space.
This article offers a comprehensive overview of FLIM and its applications at the molecular level.
TLM empowers scientists to witness the dynamics and behaviors of not only living cell populations but also individual living cells within these populations. This article discusses the role of time-lapse microscopy in efficiently studying cellular dynamics.
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) has become an indispensable characterization technique for analyzing the surface chemistry of thin films and coatings. With its ability to probe just the top few nanometers and reveal elemental composition, chemical bonding, and electronic structure, XPS provides unparalleled insights into how surface and interface properties determine film performance.
