Participate in cathodoluminescence workshop in Amsterdam
March 29, 2018
We are excited to announce our first cathodoluminescence workshop, which will be hosted by the AMOLF Institute in Amsterdam on 31st of May.
On 8th of March Delmic held an iCLEM workshop together with Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen. The participants had a chance to learn about iCLEM, its possibilities and advantages. Additionally, they were able to see the SECOM, iCLEM platform, at work. In the evening, the speakers together with the participants had a dinner in the historical centre of Bremen.
A new paper on Energy−Momentum Cathodoluminescence Spectroscopy of Dielectric Nanostructures was published in the renowned journal ACS Photonics. It focuses on mapping the local density of optical states (LDOS), which is fundamental to understanding nanophotonic systems and devices. Complete LDOS mapping, in energy, momentum, and real space, can be performed using cathodoluminescence spectroscopy.
We are excited to share with you the new application note on cathodoluminescence imaging on perovskites, prepared by our application specialist Toon Coenen. Perovskite is a collective term for materials that have a composition of the form ABX3 and a perovskite crystal structure. Recently it has received significant attention because of its potential to create cheap, flexible, and efficient optoelectronic devices such as solar cells and light-emitting diodes.
Delmic and Max Planck Institute for Marine Biology are excited to invite you to the iCLEM workshop, which will be hosted in Bremen on 8th of March 2018. The workshop focuses on correlative microscopy and aims to demonstrate the additional data you can gain from CLEM, particularly the benefits of integrated CLEM using the SECOM system. It is a great opportunity to learn more about important methodology for life science research, as well as to get to know fellow researchers.
A recently published paper in Advanced Functional Materials studies the InP growth and luminescence on graphene. The results of the research contribute to the development of hybrid structures in integrated photonic and optoelectronic devices. They also show the advantages of combining multiple imaging techniques to get a complete picture of the crystals.
A team of researchers from Monash University (Melbourne, Australia) have combined photoluminescence, cathodoluminescence, and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy studies to shed light on the optical and material properties of a photo-active perovskite; a material that has gained significant interest because of its potential for cheap, flexible, and efficient solar cells. Their findings have been published in the renowned journal Advanced Energy Materials.
We are excited to announce that we have moved to a new office location in Delft. We spent the previous two years in a building about 3 kilometers away from our new location. Our old office served us well but we couldn't be more excited about our new space.
Elizabeth Carroll and Jacob Hoogenboom from TU Delft - Imaging Physics, together with Lucy Collinson from the Francis Crick Institute in London have published a review on 3D CLEM. In the article, they share their opinion on the potential of three-dimensional microscopy for imaging behaviour and development in biological systems.
During a festive workshop on September 21, AMOLF has celebrated that the new Time-Resolved Cathodoluminescence SEMs are giving their first results. The group of Albert Polman is now able to make 2D maps of CL spectra, lifetime, and photon-photon correlations in the Quanta650-SPARC system. In addition, their 250-fs-laser-driven XL-30 system has provided the first pulses and they are installing the optical system for pump-probe experiments.
The Time-Resolved CL project is a collaboration between AMOLF, ThermoFisher-FEI and DELMIC.
