Raman Spectroscopy Helps Battery Research

The Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy, University of Liverpool, UK, is developing new devices, in the form of batteries and supercapacitors. Key to this work is understanding the interfacial processes that occur at electrode surfaces. Raman

spectroscopy is a particularly powerful technique for this application. Hardwick’s group uses a Renishaw inVia confocal Raman microscope for this work. They can study the electrode through the electrolyte, with a high spatial resolution, with high sensitivity and non-destructively.

Asylum Research Quantifi es the “Last Axis” in Atomic Force Microscopy

Oxford Instruments Asylum Research announced their development of an interferometric displacement sensor

(IDS) that provides a direct measure of AFM cantilever displacement. T e IDS interfaces the existing optical system of the Asylum Research Cypher AFM with an external laser Doppler vibrometer. It does not replace the standard laser and detector; rather, it provides a comple- mentary detection method that measures the true tip displacement.
