App Note | Technology:


Ceramics typically include a combination of ionic and covalent bonds to form a material with high modulus and hardness, high melting point, high thermal expansion and corrosion resistance. Because these materials may be brittle, fracture toughness is also an important mechanical property. Composites are made from…

Electrospun Nanofiber Structure and Morphology

The beauty of the electrospinning technique is that it allows the production of fibers in different structural organization and morphologies to meet their application needs. Researchers and industries use fibers in applications like drug delivery, tissue engineering, energy storage, textiles, and filtration of different media….

Nanofiber Characterization of Electrospun Fibers

Extruded fibers used for nonwoven textiles are found in many consumer products including filters, wipes, automotive components, upholstery, sports apparel, roofing materials, bedding, fiberglass boats, surgical gowns, and diapers. Fabrics, filtration, medical scaffolds, fuel cells, insulation and other applications now include nanofibers for improved product…

App Note | Technology: Scanning Electron Microscopy

Gunshot Residue (GSR) Analysis

Gunshot residue (GSR) analysis is a standard method to determine if a firearm has been used. Particles for GSR analysis typically range from 0.5 to 10 microns. Often the primer particles containing lead (Pb), barium (Ba) and antimony (Sb) are detected and analyzed using EDS…

Trace Evidence

The instruments commonly used in criminal or environmental forensic investigations and analysis include scanning electron and optical microscopes. These tools are used to characterize forensic evidence like fabrics, metals, textile or glass. Microscopic imaging can also aid in identifying scratches and indents from tool marks, blood,…

App Note | Technology:


Optical and scanning electron microscopes (SEM) are some of the instruments commonly used in general investigations and analyses for criminal, environmental and industrial forensics. These tools are used to characterize forensic evidence like fabrics, metals, particulates, textile or glass. Microscopic imaging can also aid in…
