Membranes and porous materials integrated in everything from personal protective equipment (PPE) to industrial concrete are often misunderstood. In many cases, scientists and engineers working with such substrates may not realize how affordably and robustly they can be characterized. In this webinar event, Dr. Nanette Jarenwattananon will break down the fundamentals of 3 of the […]
High-quality sample preparation for (scanning) transmission electron microscopy (S/TEM) can make the difference between impactful or mediocre analysis. An ideal lamella – the prepared cross-section of a sample – captures the right aspects of a feature of interest, balances signal intensity for structure and element analysis, and enhances the clarity of the end-image. Producing such […]
Nanoindentation probes a host of mechanical properties – including modulus, hardness, stress, strain-rate sensitivity, and more – while achieving improved flexibility and adaptability over conventional mechanical analysis techniques. In spite of its advantages, many engineers may still be unaware of the diverse applications nanoindentation supports. In the upcoming live webinar event, guest speaker Patrick O’Hara […]
