Perhaps technologies delivering automation in factories and other production sites? That may be what comes to mind, but advances in organic electronics are now driving the rapid development of biological sensors that measure physiological signals when in contact with the skin, organs, and other parts of the body. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/coming-to-grips-with-biological-information-through-flexible-organic-electronics-developing-bendable-and-stretchable-biosensors-and-device/ Wed, 28 Jun 2017 10:14:00 +0000 Kuniko Yagura, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/16804 EM Sample Preparation Electron Microscopy Sample Preparation: “The Future is Cold, Dynamic and Hybrid” In 2014, the renowned Electron Microscopy for Materials Science (EMAT) research lab at the University Antwerp, Belgium, and Leica Microsystems started a fruitful collaboration to establish a Leica Reference Site in Antwerp. This site, officially opened in July 2014, is dedicated to specimen preparation for electron microscopy in materials science with a special focus on ion beam milling and recently also on carbon coating. In this interview Prof Gustaf van Tendeloo, Director of EMAT, and Frédéric Leroux, TEM specimen preparation specialist, talk about research topics at EMAT, how the Leica reference site has evolved, and future trends for EM sample preparation. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/electron-microscopy-sample-preparation-the-future-is-cold-dynamic-and-hybrid/ Thu, 22 Oct 2015 19:22:00 +0000 Prof. Gustaaf (Staf) Van Tendeloo, PhD Frédéric Leroux, Florence Hauger https://www.leica-microsystems.com/15132 Surface Metrology Nanoscale or Microscale Structures Formed in Polymers Containing Nanotubes Greatly Enhance the Electrical Conductivity: Potential Applications for Photovoltaic Devices The excellent mechanical and electrical properties of carbon nanotubes have led to them being exploited for the creation of a new class of high performance polymer composites. Due to important advances in the last few years, nanotube containing polymers have been developed for optoelectronic applications. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/nanoscale-or-microscale-structures-formed-in-polymers-containing-nanotubes-greatly-enhance-the-electrical-conductivity-potential-applications-for-photovoltaic-devices/ Fri, 27 Feb 2015 11:34:00 +0000 PhD James DeRose, Nicolas Boulanger, Patrice Belin, PhD David R.
