New study uses cathodoluminescence to characterize design of a plasmonic metasurface lens
February 19, 2019
A new interesting study on "Merging transformation optics with electron-driven photon sources" was published in Nature Communications. The research was done by scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, AMOLF, and the University of Stuttgart. The study combines optical modelling and design of a plasmonic metasurface lens, with electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) and cathodoluminescence (CL) experiments to characterize its properties. The experiments demonstrate that such surfaces can be used in the future for hybrid pump-probe experiments and/or spectral interferometry.

Educative webinars coming up this year
January 28, 2019
We are stepping in 2019 with a lot of plans for the year. At the end of 2018 we were very excited to introduce the webinars again starting with the webinar Time-resolved cathodoluminescence! Previously, we have already have collaborated with our distributors and partners and made a few very interesting webinars on various topics, which are available on our website.
Advanced techniques and tool to study geological samples discussed during workshop in Oslo
January 24, 2019
On 16th and 17th of January the University of Oslo hosted the workshop "Analytical SEM for Geology" organized by Delmic, Hitachi and Bruker. 24 participants came from Norway, Poland, Denmark, Sweden and UK to learn about the most advanced techniques and tools for studying geological samples. The workshop, which lasted two days, included several presentations from invited speakers, as well as hands-on sessions on SEM equipment, which can be used to study and analyse geological materials.
The first day of the workshop consisted of talks by Max Patzschke and Laurie Palasse from Bruker on the advanced microanalysis and characterization of mineralogical samples with electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS). Tobias Salge from Natural History Museum of London presented his research on Macro, to Micro to Nanoscale Advanced SEM/EDS of Earth and Planetary Materials. Finally, Toon Coenen from Delmic talked abou
Energy-momentum cathodoluminescence technique applied to study plasmonic bullseye antennas
January 18, 2019
A new paper on "Energy-Momentum Cathodoluminescence Imaging of Anisotropic Directionality in Elliptical Aluminum Plasmonic Bullseye Antennas" was published in ACS Photonics by researchers Toon Coenen (Product Manager at Delmic) and Albert Polman (co-founder of Delmic and group leader at AMOLF). The paper for the first time introduces a completely new cathodoluminescence (CL) imaging technique called lens scanning energy-momentum (LSEK) cathodoluminescence.
Introducing JOLT: newest member of cathodoluminescence detection product line
January 10, 2019
We are starting the year with introducing the new product in the cathodoluminescence detection line: JOLT. This easy-to-use and budget-friendly detector is perfect for cathodoluminescence (CL) measurements of geological and optoelectronic samples.
Delmic's achievements in 2018 and plans for the next year
December 24, 2018
The holidays and the end of the year are just around the corner, so we would like to share with you the results of this year!
Our SPARC CL detector was sold to several countries worldwide, including China, Germany, USA, Denmark and Australia. We are looking forward to exciting installations coming up next year.
This year we added a new product to our SPARC product line: the LAB Cube. This time-resolved module allows to obtain lifetime and g(2) images. Another completely new product in the cathodoluminescence line will be announced at the beginning of the 2019, so stay tuned!
New possibilities for nanoscale light propagation with DNA-assembled plasmonic waveguides
December 11, 2018
A new interesting paper focusing on DNA-Assembled Plasmonic Waveguides for Nanoscale Light Propagation to a Fluorescent Nanodiamond was published in the prestigious journal Nano Letters by a team of researchers from King's College London, Stanford, and the technical university/Leibnitz institute in Dresden. The paper explores the possibilities of DNA-based nanofabrication applied to plasmonic waveguides and studied with cathodoluminescence imaging and electron energy loss spectroscopy.
