NMRC Chooses the Quorum Q150 Coater when Coating Samples with Iridium


Quorum Technologies reports on the reliability and repeat- ability of metal fi lm deposition thickness achieved by the Q150T S coater, which is important to the Nanoscale & Microscale Research Centre at the University of Nottingham. T e Q150T has a very controllable, easily reproducible coat, helped by the turbo pump. T e reproducibility is very important because once a thickness is found that works, one needs to be able to reproduce it to 1 nm.

Oxford Instruments Asylum Research Application Note Oxford Instruments released an application note, “Toward Better Charge Storage: AFM Determines Key Electrical Double Layer (EDL) Properties in Future Ionic Liquid Electrolytes.” It describes how atomic force microscopy measurements are used to advance energy storage research. Ionic liquids are candidates to replace conventional electrolytes in next-generation batteries and electrochemical capacitors, however their properties are not as well understood. T e application note describes how AFM imaging and force measurements are helping elucidate ionic liquids properties at electrode interfaces.

MIT Researchers Use Deep-Cooled Princeton Instruments FPA Camera to Advance In Vivo Imaging in the SWIR


Princeton Instruments hails the introduction and evaluation of a new class of high-quality, indium-arsenide (InAs)–based, short-wave infrared (SWIR)–emitting quantum dots for use as in vivo imaging agents by researchers


at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. A state-of-the-art Princeton Instruments NIRvana


electrically cooled indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) focal plane array (FPA) was employed in the quantum dot evaluation.
