Tilmann Leisegang: "Towards a miniature X-ray laboratory"
Tilmann Leisegang: "Towards a miniature X-ray laboratory" More than a century after their discovery, X-rays still claim their place in medicine and science.
Prof. Ivo Rangelow: “Scanning nanocomponents’ surfaces at the atomic level will enable more efficient electronic devices”
Prof. Ivo Rangelow: “Scanning nanocomponents’ surfaces at the atomic level will enable more efficient electronic devices” Prof Ivo Rangelow from the University of Ilmenau is the Scientific Vice Coordinator of the EU research project PRONANO. Researchers of the European project PRONANO have developed a new technology to examine surfaces at the atomic level.
The 3D Nanoscanner
The 3D Nanoscanner Researchers from the Institute of Micro- and Nanotechnologies in Ilmenau, Germany have developed the new scanning device with a set of highly sensitive needles or cantilevers , each of which is only a few microns wide.
Specialized invisible needles make us see surfaces at the nanoscale
Specialized invisible needles make us see surfaces at the nanoscale A cantilever is a very thin single needle currently used for quality control at the nanoscale, but to improve and speed up the process scientists are developing an array of needles, a cantilever array, functioning simultaneously.
