New version of our ODEMIS microscopy software package released

October 31, 2016

We are very excited to announce that we have released a new version of our ODEMIS open-source microscopy software package. ODEMIS v2.5 is now available for download on our ODEMIS page. This release mostly focuses on improving the reliability, both of the software itself and by handling better hardware (mis-)behaviour. In particular, the Odemis GUI should not freeze anymore when starting a stream, waiting for the hardware to prepare. It also brings support for a couple of new hardware.

Webinar on cathodoluminescence spectroscopy available online

September 23, 2016

On Thursday September 15 we hosted a very successful webinar in collaboration with our North American distributor NanoScience Instruments. The first half of the webinar, given by our application specialist Dr. Toon Coenen, served as an introduction to cathodoluminescence. Subsequently, guest speaker Dr. Sophie Meuret talked about her research on time-resolved cathodoluminescence. The recording of the webinar can now be watched online for those who missed it.

Research on chiral split ring resonators using the SPARC published in Nano Letters

August 15, 2016

Chirality is the property of an asymmetrical object in which – akin to left and right hands – it is distinguishable from its mirror image. This is an important determinant for the behavior of molecules, and is increasingly being wielded for the development of optical technology. In a paper published in the July 2016 edition of Nano Letters, a leading journal in the field of nanoscience, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology use cathodoluminescence imaging with nanometer resolution to study the chiral response of a nanostructure.
