  1. Designing the Electron Microscope of the Future

    How Siemens and Semplor democratized SEM and shrank it to fit on a desk. Traditional scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) are large, expensive and complex pieces of lab equipment. To use, maintain and repair them would require specialized knowledge and skills few companies and research outlets have. This didn’t sit well with Semplor, makers of NANOS — an easy-to-use SEM the...
  2. Quantum Computers: The Importance of Vibration Isolation

    What is the basic idea in quantum mechanics that quantum computers use?Quantum computers take advantage of quantum mechanics, an extremely successful fundamental theory in physics that describes the behavior of very small objects, objects at the atomic level and smaller. The theory states that small objects aren’t made up of solid particles like billiard balls but are fundamentally wavelike. It...
  3. Elastic strain measurements

    High-resolution electron backscatter diffraction Backscatter electron contrast images (left) and elastic strain (Ɛxx normal strain component) maps (right) associated with the ɣ/ɣ’ interfaces in Ni-superalloy measured by high-resolution electron backscatter diffraction technique. Data were collected from the same area after mechanical polishing and after broad argon ion beam milling. High-resolution electron backscatter diffraction (HR-EBSD) strain measurements are very sensitive to...
  4. HAROGIC Technologies introduces the SAE-200

    HAROGIC Technologies, a company that develops miniaturized, high-performance RF test instruments, has introduced the SAE-200, a USB-based real-time spectrum analyser that operates from 9 kHz to 20 GHz with a 100 MHz bandwidth. It is an advanced RF instrument that meets the SWaP-C requirements - (S) Small Size, (W) Lightweight, weighs less than 200 g, (P) high-performance and (C) The unit costs £7,500...
  5. WEBINAR: How to Build a Quantum Computer

    Event hosted by FormFactor Cryogenic and Quantum Solutions May 23, 2024 Online event Quantum computing is reaching an inflection point. Once a technology developed and operated in experimental labs, it is now being manufactured by large-scale industrial companies. The commercialisation of superconducting quantum processing units (QPUs), FPGA-based microwave synthesis electronics, and ultra-low-temperature refrigerators has resulted in the realization of commercial-off-the-shelf, full-stack...
  6. Semplor - the new name for SEM's

    We are proud to announce the new company name from SEMPLOR, marking an exciting new chapter in their journey of growth and professionalism. They have decided it is time to rename Phe-nx and embrace a new company name that truly reflects their identity. With their state-of-the-art tabletop SEM, the NANOS, and a commitment to making SEM accessible to everyone, everywhere...
