New paper investigates the brightest and most stable luminescent labels for CCLEM bioimaging

August 30, 2019

A new paper published in Nano Letters by a group of scientists from EMPA, ETH Zurich, University of Tartu and Karolinska Institutet investigates ultrabright and stable luminescent labels for correlative cathodoluminescence electron microscopy(CCLEM) bioimaging. The paper reveals that rare-earth element doped nanocrystals show both high brightness and stability when used for CCLEM bioimaging.

Watch Integrated CLEM system SECOM live in action

August 06, 2019

In May we organised the first online live demonstration of our cathodoluminescence system, SPARC. It was a great way to show the possibilities of the system. We are excited to announce that at the end of this month, on the 27th of August, we are planning to have an online demonstration of the SECOM system, our integrated correlative light and electron microscope.

Vast possibilities of SPARC cathodoluminescence detector

July 09, 2019

SPARC Spectral is the most flexible and reliable cathodoluminescence system on the market, allowing experimental freedom thanks to its modularity. The possibilities of this system are vast: six imaging modes, open-source software ODEMIS and modular design ensure this. This system is successfully used by companies and research institutes all over the world in the fields of nanophotonics, materials science and geosciences (read our customer stories in our blog).

Cathodoluminescence used to measure mode alignment in inversely tapered silicon nano-resonators

July 02, 2019

A new paper on inversely tapered silicon nano-resonators by researchers from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and Freie Universität Berlin was recently published in Scientific Reports. In their study the authors selectively excited and measured the optical modes of inversely tapered silicon photonic resonators using cathodoluminescence spectroscopy. This allowed them to experimentally map the whispering gallery modes(WGMs) in such photonic resonators.

Cathodoluminescence for plasmonics: webinar

June 18, 2019

We are continuing our educational series of webinars, dedicated to cathodoluminescence technique and its application in different fields. Over the last few months, we have covered cathodoluminescence for geology, rare-earth materials, as well as time-resolved cathodoluminescence and lens scanning energy-momentum CL. On the 11th of July we are going to focus on yet another field, where cathodoluminescence can be successfully used: plasmonics
