Join the first time-resolved cathodoluminescence webinar!

November 01, 2018

Are you working with compound semiconductors for optoelectronics? Or are you studying single-photon emitters or phosphor materials? Then this webinar can show you new opportunities for your research.

Delmic is excited to invite you to our webinar on time-resolved cathodoluminescence, which will take place on 22nd of November, 9:30 AM (CET). This webinar will give you an overview of this imaging technique and how it can be applied in different fields. Time-resolved cathodoluminescence is a relatively new technique, which can be used to observe the time dynamics of cathodoluminescence emission process. It can be an extremely useful tool for getting insights into material properties as well as studying nanoscale quality and doing defect analysis.

Discovering secrets of the ocean: application note on marine microbiology

October 26, 2018

Deep down in the ocean, between and under the layers of the water, the secrets of the life itself are hidden, invisible to the naked eye. Studying marine microbes, which cover more than 70% of the earth and represent the world's largest ecosystem, can reveal information about ocean's chemistry and climate, and maybe even bring us closer to understanding how the life originated on our planet. 

Studying something as tiny as marine microbes can be extremely challenging. Microscopy proves to be a great tool for examining physiological and metabolic states of individual cells. Two types of imaging can be extremely effective. Fluorescence microscopy helps to image the function and provides information regarding metabolism of the organism. On the other hand, it is impossible to get information about ultrastructural composition of the sample. In order to identify cells and different communities of microbes a high resolution imaging, performed by electron microscopy, is required.

New time-resolved cathodoluminescence solution: the LAB Cube

October 16, 2018

We are excited to present a completely new SPARC module: the LAB Cube. This module, which can be fiber-coupled to any standard or new SPARC system, allows to acquire valuable information with time-resolved cathodoluminescence imaging

The module gives the LAB Cube users the freedom to perform lifetime mapping (also known as decay trace) and antibunching experiments (g(2) imaging). These techniques can give insight into intrinsic material properties and can be used for studying the quantum nature of light and single-photon emitters, as well as nanoscale quality and defect analysis. The (nano)materials, which can be studied, include semiconductors for optoelectronics (such as (In)GaN, perovskites, and GaAs), single-photon emitters and rare-earth phosphor materials. 

Watch the video of our application specialist Toon Coenen explaining the possibilities of the LAB Cube.

Studying nanoantennas with hyperspectral cathodoluminescence imaging: new paper

October 01, 2018

A new paper on Imaging Electric and Magnetic Modes and Their Hybridization in Single and Dimer AlGaAs Nanoantennas by the researchers from King’s College London, Université Paris Diderot and University of Brescia was published in the Advanced Optical Materials. This research brings us closer to understanding dielectric nanostructures, and the ways light can be manipulated, which is essential for the development of photonic devices, metamaterials and metasurfaces, as well as for solar cells and sensors.

The possibilities of Superresolution light microscopy for understanding biological systems: application note

September 13, 2018

Integrated Superresolution CLEM is proving to be a revolutionary method for understanding biological systems. Superresolution (SR) correlative light imaging technique provides highly accurate correlation of fluorescent proteins with cellular structure. The new application note focuses on the benefits and possibilities of The SR-iCLEM (superresolution integrated CLEM) technique.

Cathodoluminescence g(2) imaging: technical note on the SPARC new imaging mode

September 06, 2018

In our recent post, we announced that Delmic will present the new imaging modes of the SPARC system during the IMC19: time-resolved cathodoluminescence imaging(g(2) and lifetime mapping). Our last technical note focused on the lifetime mapping, and today we prepared another technical note, which focuses on the cathodoluminescence g(2) imaging.

Why you should visit Delmic stand at IMC19

August 21, 2018

The big event of September, 19th International Microscopy Congress will start in less than three weeks, and we are very excited about it. A big part of our presence at IMC19 will be dedicated to the demonstrations of our SPARC and SECOM systems, both of which will be installed on the Scanning Electron Microscope S8000 provided by TESCAN.

While we are getting everything ready, we made a short video, which sums up what we will be during the IMC19. In the video, our team members explain why it is worth coming to our stand (47-50) and registering for the live demonstrations.
