Characterization CHANGE TOPIC

Characterization news, September 2014

Understanding how carbon fibers perform in metal composite materials could now be easier with a combined analysis approach.

First look inside a working lithium-ion battery

For the first time, researchers have been able to open a kind of window into the inner workings of a lithium-ion battery.

Raising the profile and supporting the efforts of materials science research.

Researchers have developed a new sensor that can detect and count nanoparticles, at sizes as small as 10 nanometers, one at a time.

Jack Lemons has been awarded the highly acclaimed international 2015 Acta Biomaterialia Gold Medal Award.

Researchers have created dynamic nanoparticles (NPs) that could provide an arsenal of applications to diagnose and treat cancer.
