  • A Good Place for Materials Scientists and Mineralogists to prepare their EM Samples

    In June 2014, the Institut de Minéralogie, de Physique des Matériaux et de Cosmochimie (IMPMC) of the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris became a Leica reference lab for EM Sample Preparation with equipment like the Leica EM TXP target surfacing systems and the Leica EM TIC 3X ion beam milling system. In the interview, Imène Estève, engineer at the Centre National de Recherches Scientifiques (CNRS) and head of the SEM-FIB national facility, in charge of running the lab, tells us about how this cooperation has developed.

  • Preparation of Small Disk-shaped Samples for Capacitance and Pyroelectric Current Measurements

    Capacitance and pyroelectric current measurements are best suited to determine important dielectric properties of materials, e.g. the relative dielectric constant, εr, and the remnant electric polarisation, P, of materials, respectively. In this technical report, we demonstrate the successful use of the Leica EM TXP surface targeting system to prepare a small capacitor.
