How Geologists Analyze Petroleum Fluid Inclusions

Fluid inclusions are small encapsulations in of liquids or gases that are trapped within a crystal. Sometimes the fluids become trapped while the crystal is being formed. Fluid inclusions can also occur later in time when the crystal undergoes fracturing and rehealing, and the small drops are trapped.  

Understanding the Basics of Photovoltaic Cell Metrology

In recent years, the need for sustainable energy sources has increased dramatically, thus leading to substantial developments in renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaic (PV) cells. A photovoltaic cell, also called a solar cell, is a single device that converts sunlight into electrical energy through semiconducting components. Larger PV units, called modules or panels, are formed by connecting many individual cells and can be configured in different ways depending on their application and industry setting. 

How to Characterize Key Carbon Nanotube Properties

Carbon-based nanomaterials have been in vogue in the research community since the discovery of graphene. When Professors Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov first isolated monolayer carbon, it effectively heralded the beginning of two-dimensional materials research. Scientists continue to innovate 2D carbon structures due to the material’s advantageous electromechanical and thermal properties. One such breakthrough structure is the carbon nanotube (CNT). 

What is an Imaging Photometer?

An imaging photometer is an instrument used to measure visible light according to how the human eye perceives it. It is based on photometry, which measures an object's brightness and the human visual response to light. Imaging photometers are frequently used in astronomy and science applications. This blog post will provide an overview of what an imaging photometer is, its applications and the benefits it offers when coupled with a microscope to become a microscope imaging photometer.

Why Choose a Confocal Raman System?

Confocal Raman microscopy (CRM) enables analysts to obtain a highly magnified view of a sample, which includes information about depth and structures. This method is ideal for in-depth Raman analysis and provides the highest spatial resolution of any other microscopy technique. This blog post will provide an overview of confocal Raman systems and how choosing one could benefit various applications.
