The basic principles of the 2-in-1 solution and a comparison between it and other common materials analysis methods, such scanning electron microscopy (SEM), are explained to demonstrate how a rapid, efficient workflow is achieved. A 2-in-1 analysis solution can reduce significantly the cost and time for obtaining material image and composition data. Such data are instrumental in assuring quality and reliability to make confident decisions quickly during production, quality control, failure analysis, and research and development in industries and fields, such as automotive and metallurgy. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/see-the-structure-with-microscopy-know-the-composition-with-laser-spectroscopy/ Mon, 11 Jun 2018 13:39:00 +0000 PhD James DeRose, Dr. Kay Scheffler https://www.leica-microsystems.com/20117 Metallography Leica is MAD about LIBS When analyzing material for cleanliness testing, users normally just want a simple way to know whether the particle under scrutiny is normal debris or something more risky. Users can now “LIBS” it to acquire rapidly the composition and then move onto the next manufacturing step. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/leica-is-mad-about-libs/ Sun, 22 Apr 2018 22:00:00 +0000 Mike Tjepkema, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/19622 Basics in Microscopy Live-Cell Imaging Graphene-Based Microbots for Toxic Heavy Metal Removal and Recovery from Water Heavy metal contamination in water is a serious risk to the public health and other life forms on earth. Current research in nanotechnology is developing new nanosystems and nanomaterials for the fast and efficient removal of pollutants and heavy metals from water. Here, we report graphene oxide-based microbots (GOx-microbots) as active self-propelled systems for the capture, transfer, and removal of a heavy metal (i.e., lead) and its subsequent recovery for recycling purposes. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/graphene-based-microbots-for-toxic-heavy-metal-removal-and-recovery-from-water/ Thu, 03 Aug 2017 10:27:00 +0000 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/14798 Quality Assurance Cleanliness Analysis in Relation to Particulate Contamination Devices, products, and their components fabricated in many industries can be quite sensitive to contamination and, as a result, have stringent requirements for cleanliness. Measurement systems for automated particle analysis are often exploited for quantitative validation of product and component cleanliness to fulfill the needs of such industries as automotive, aerospace, microelectronics, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices. This report discusses the use of microscopy based measurement systems for automated particle analysis. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/cleanliness-analysis-in-relation-to-particulate-contamination/ Mon, 08 Dec 2014 16:12:00 +0000 Yvonne Holzapfel, PhD James DeRose, Guido Kreck, PhD Markus Rochowicz
