  • New products, 3.39 Interferometer on show and ZeGage demo system for on-site demonstration

    Zygo Verifire 3.39 Infrared Interferometer

    After presenting the Zygo Verifire 3.39 Infrared Interferometer at the laser exhibition in Munich, Zygo Germany have the system available in their Weiterstadt demo lab for customer measurements and system demonstrations.

    The system will be only be available until the middle of August. Please let us know soon whether you or your colleagues would be interested in a demonstration or sending test samples for measurement.

    Zygo ZeGage Plus demonstration system coming to Lambda soon

    We will have the Zygo ZeGage Plus Non-Contact Optical Surface Profiler available for on-site demonstrations soon. With a range of objectives available from 1x to 50x we can measure most surfaces of interest.

    The ZeGage Plus profiler can measure a wider variety of surfaces – ranging from very rough to super smooth, with sub-nanometer precision, independent of field of view. Surface finishes may include ground, honed, lapped, polished, and super-polished on materials such as glass, ceramic, and metal. Contact us to book your demo.

    New high lateral resolution laser interferometers

    Zygo have introduced the VeriFire HD and VeriFire HDX Interferometers.

    The Verifire HD is designed with modular options so you can configure your system with the exact mix of options you need. Some available configuration options are:

    • Point source or coherent noise reduction (artefact suppression)
    • 5.3 or 1.4 megapixel camera
    • Fixed zoom, or discrete motorised turret zoom (1x, 1.7x, 3x)

    The Verifire HDX system has an all-new optical design that was rigorously engineered to support pixel-limited performance for its 3.4k x 3.4k (11.6 megapixel) sensor, delivering enhanced imaging which reveals surface features that have been difficult to discern with lower resolution interferometers. This ultrahigh spatial resolution doesn't come at the expense of speed. The system operates at a frame rate of 96 Hz, at full resolution – up to 10X faster than other high resolution interferometers that can have limited capability due to noise entering the much slower measurement.

    ZPS - Absolute Position Measurement System

    ZYGO's new ZPS™ System measures absolute position using ultra-compact optical sensors that are easily integrated into high-precision applications such as deformable mirrors and lens positioning. The optical sensor system provides up to 64 synchronised channels of high-precision, non-contact, absolute position measurement over a range of 1.2 mm. Measurement resolution is 0.01 nm with ≤ 1 nm/day measurement stability.

    The optical sensors do not generate heat and are insensitive to electromagnetic interference, making the ZPS System ideal for high-precision applications that may be affected by these factors. The ultra-compact sensors connect to the compact centralised enclosure via fibre optic cables.

     

    Demonstration systems at Lambda available for sale

    We have a VeriFire QPZ Interferometer and a Nexview Optical Surface Profiler at Lambda available for demonstration and also available for sale. The QPZ is equivalent to the new VeriFire but with the old style wired remote control.

    The Nexview is the top of the range Optical Surface Profiler from Zygo and can measure super-smooth samples using SmartPSI technology, measure in colour without sacrificing metrology capability and is automated for ease of use for users. Contact us for demonstrations or price enquiries.

  • Scratches and Digs – measure on curves and large areas now!

    Scratch/Dig measurement systems from Savvy Optics and Dioptic have begun life looking at flat surfaces up to 100mm square or 45mm diameter respectively.

    Recent advances (through demand) now allow for measurements to be made over large flat areas using the SavvyInspector SIF-16 which can cover an area of 200mm x 400mm. On parts that larger, full part mapping is essential. The new “autoscan” feature allows unmanned scanning and documentation of the entire optical surface as the system steps and photographs the entire part in 9 x 12 mm position labelled images and puts all images in a folder for review by an inspector.

    The ARGOS system from Dioptic can now measure curved surfaces also. They have shown that they can measure a 1” diameter plano-convex lens of focal length of f = 150mm using a 4° tilted camera setup. This method is fast and less prone to errors.

    The ARGOS system can also measure edge chips and coating holes. It can also be automated for high throughput and productivity. There is also a version for measuring fibre cable end caps.

    The surface recognition performed by ARGOS recognises the tiniest defects during a running production process. The detection device for the surface recognition shows holes down to 4 µm and scratches that are as small as 1 µm wide. In addition to holes and pits, other recognisable surface defects include sleeks, streaks, coating defects, orange skin, bubbles and inclusions in the material that are close to the surface, grey coloration/blurriness and damage on the edges. All defects are shown on the screen.

    • 4Hz measurement rate
    • USB, RS232, RS422 & software
    • Continuous in-line operation
    • Analogue I/O, Event relays

    The speed of sound in a binary gas mixture depends on temperature, heat capacity, and molar mass of the mixture. By precisely measuring the speed of sound and temperature, and knowing the thermodynamic properties and molar masses of the gases, the SRS BGA244 determines the exact composition of gas mixtures.

    The BGA244 provides a hundred fold improvement in stability, accuracy and resolution over thermal conductivity analysers. It operates without lasers, filaments, chemical sensors, optical sources, separation columns, reference gases, or reagents, and runs virtually maintenance-free. It also lets you choose from 500 gases, enabling you to measure thousands of mixtures.

    The BGA244 does not require zero or span calibration to achieve 0.1% accuracy. This eliminates the need for reference, zero and span gases, plus the valves, labour or software needed to perform them; leading to a lower cost of ownership. This, plus the improved accuracy and wide range of gases, dramatically improves the value proposition for the BGA244 when compared to other analysers.

    The BGA244 is ideal for a host of applications including binary gas blending, PSA (pressure swing adsorption), helium recovery, ozone purity, dopants and carrier gases, industrial gas processes and general research where precise and reliable measurements of gas mixtures are essential.

  • Applications of Scanning Electron Microscope in Pharmaceutical Research Field

    Pharmaceutical research involves creation of new drugs or continuous improvement of existing drugs. This versatile research topic is a broad field of study dealing with an increasing number of challenges, owing to new pathogens emerging constantly and known pathogens becoming increasingly resistant to existing drugs.

    Since more information is needed, the use of advanced tools, such as scanning electron microscopes (SEMs), has been shown to be very powerful in various applications in the pharmaceutical field. In pharmaceutical research, SEMs are used for powder imaging and analysis, to gain insights into cellular interactions with new drugs, and for applications in the most complicated cancer treatments.

    This article discusses a few examples to illustrate the successful application of SEMs in research facilities across the world to develop novel and more powerful drugs to treat diseases.

    Figure 1. An example of mammalian cells observed with SEM

    Superporous hydrogels

    A research team at AIMST University in Malaysia is involved in the development of a new class of superporous hydrogel beads. Hydrogels consist of a network structure of cross-linked hydrophilic polymers that are capable of absorbing water in large amounts without dissolving.

    These beads are employed as carriers in pharmaceuticals for controlled drug delivery based on their biodegradation and swelling abilities. Since a targeted drug delivery eliminates side effects on other cells or tissues, it helps achieve easier and faster regeneration.

    With developments in research, and the increasing need to develop enhanced and highly performing drugs, the researchers have developed a new class of hydrogels with rapid swelling capacities - the reason for the name “Superporous Hydrogels”. Here, the researchers examined the surface structure and porosity of the dried beads using a SEM.

    Cancer drug research

    A new kind of approach was used in cancer drug research. It was found that aromatase, an enzyme responsible for determining the final sex phenotype of fish, was also playing a key role in the progression of breast cancer. Therefore, in a study, researchers used aromatase inhibitors for breast cancer treatment.

    In fish, androgens are irreversibly converted into estrogens by aromatase enzymes, thereby establishing the embryo’s gender to female. Researchers are showing more interest to study male fish than female fish of this species because male fish generate anti-aromatase in large quantities.

    Like Nile tilapia which gained attention as a source of food worldwide, aromatase obtained from this fish was the subject of interest for researchers looking for aromatase inhibitors.

    Nile tilapia microsomes were used to study the enzyme activity of aromatase inhibitors. They are vesicle-like fractions of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) present in healthy living cells. In this study, hepatic microsomes were prepared from Nile tilapia and their morphology was explored using a SEM.

    The proliferation of cancer cells was investigated using HepG2 human hepatoma cells and MCF-7 human breast cancer cells. The study results revealed that the growth of both cancer cell lines was efficiently inhibited by a specific anti-aromatase present in microsomes.

    For a successful cancer research, the morphology of tissues needs to be analyzed and understood. At present, this can be achieved using the correlated light and electron microscopy technique.

    Development of antibacterial powders

    Antibiotics are excessively used and as a result, the numbers of antibiotic resistant bacteria are constantly increasing. Hence, researchers are seeking new ways to find the presence of bacteria on medical devices to prevent nosocomial infections or hospital-acquired infections as much as possible. Extensive research is going on in the development of new antibacterial powders.A study revealed that pathogens present on polymer medical appliances can be very efficiently destroyed when ZnO and Ag-ZnO crystals are added to antibiotics. Here, a SEM was used to analyze the elemental composition and morphology of the crystals before using them for further experiments.

    Figure 3. Pharmaceutical crystals observed with SEM
    Figure 4. Pharmaceutical components including crystals observed with SEM

    Conclusion

    In summary, scanning electron microscopes are a very polyvalent tool that can be used for various research activities in the pharmaceutical field. It helps understand the morphology of the component of interest and highlights the effect of interactions with its environment.

  • How SEM helps discover suitable corrosion inhibitors

    Many industries would benefit from the inhibition of corrosion in metals. In the materials science field, scientists are therefore exploring ways to prevent or reduce corrosion. Many studies looking for suitable corrosion inhibitors have been carried out.

    However, most of the inhibitors discovered and developed during those studies were synthetic chemicals, which are very expensive, and hazardous to the environment. Due to the characteristics of these chemicals, studies were carried out to investigate and analyse natural products that could be used as an anti-corrosion agent. SEM technology helped conduct these studies in an effective manner, something we will describe further in this article.

    The use of castor oil extract to inhibit corrosion

    In 2017 Omotioma et al. (Int. J. Chem. Sci.: 14(1)) describe the use of castor oil (Ricinus communis) extract to inhibit corrosion of mild steel. Morphological observations of the corroded mild steel samples were carried out using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). As a result of this study, castor oil extract was found to inhibit both cathodic and anodic reactions and act as a mixed-type inhibitor.

    Another study from the same research group in 2015 (Der Pharma Chemica, 2015, 7 (11):373-383) investigated the use of leaves extract of bitter leaf (Vernonia amygdalina) as corrosion inhibitor for aluminum. In this case, detailed changes in morphology were also revealed with the use of a SEM, which serves as a helpful tool to understand morphological changes in detail.

    Corrosion behaviour on stainless steel

    A more detailed study on corrosion behaviour on stainless steel, with a focus on oil refinery distillation systems, was performed by Loto in 2016 (J Mater Res Technol. 2016). During this study, the surface morphology was analysed in more detail with SEM to detect defects or surface changes. The capability to understand surface morphology in combination with elemental detection via EDS allows results to be obtained in a fast and easy manner. The study was successful in proving that S32101 steel has significantly lower corrosion rates than 410 martensitic stainless steel used for applications in oil refinery distillation systems.

  • How engineers and researchers can boost polymers properties with SEM

    Polymers have many uses and applications: engineered combinations of monomers produce a nearly infinite number of molecules with different properties, which are determined by the chemical composition and structure of the molecule. The form of the molecule has a big influence on how the polymer will behave when exposed to different external forces. In this blog, you’ll find practical examples of how Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEMs) can provide unexpected results.

    Polymers: ideal crafting materials

    First, I’ll focus on what kind of information SEMs provide on thermoplastic polymers.

    These materials have a very linear chemical structure and weak interactions binding the molecules together. In these polymers, the bonds are easily broken when the polymer is heated up, which results in the material deforming. They have an good resistance to high temperatures, and are also characterised by a high chemical inertia and impressive resistance to abrasion.

    Thermosplastic polymers can undergo different kinds of industrial processes, such as printing or extrusion, making them the perfect crafting materials for items with the most complex of shapes.

    Fig. 1 SEM image of a meltblown fibre. The diameter of the fibre can easily be measured at this magnification.

    To give a few examples of their applications, thermoplastic polymers are widely used in the production of fibres, electrical and electronic parts, packaging films, but also for daily use items, such as oven-proof kitchenware. SEMs can be used to investigate their properties and quality, but also to improve the processes and investigate how different forces affect these materials.

    What does a SEM tell me about my polymer?

    After an abrasion test, a close look at the surface of the polymer can show the real consequences of the stress applied to the material. This allows for further development of the material or for quality controls at the end of the production chain.

    In this case, the interesting techniques are roughness analysis via stereoscopic reconstructions or shape from shading, which enable researchers to measure the depth of the scratches on the material.

    Fig 2. SEM image of a wax. SEM with EDS analysis was used to investigate the distribution and composition of particles dispersed in the polymeric matrix.
    Fig 3. A semiconductor imaged with a SEM can be easily inspected to find defects in the production process.

    Diameters of fibers and particles can be measured very accurately on a picture taken at high magnification. These can provide different kind of information, from fluidynamic properties, to the maximum particle size that can be caught in a filter, to how well a powder can be dispersed in a solution.

    Automated procedures are also available to instruct SEMs to autonomously collect pictures of the sample and measure important parameters like diameter, axis size, aspect ratios or areas. These results provide a huge amount of data easily and quickly, saving valuable time that researchers can invest in a more productive and efficient way.

    SEMs can also be used to investigate new and trending manufacturing processes like 3D printing, where a polymer is extruded and manipulated to create a real life version of a digital 3D drawing. The resolution and quality of the print, as well as the components of the printer itself, can be measured and investigated to dramatically boost the performance of the device.

    Fig 4. SEM image of a 3D-printed rabbit. SEM was used to investigate the object for defects.

    When analysing the distribution of particles in a film, knowing the composition of the different phases can help improve the dispersion process. This analysis can be easily performed using energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDX or EDS) - the most used microanalysis technique available on SEMs. In a couple of seconds, the chemical composition of the analysed sample is displayed on screen.

    Can I load my polymer in a SEM?

    Analysing a polymer with an electron microscope raises different problems. But as the polymer industry is one of the biggest players among SEM users, a number of simple solutions are available to obtain the desired results.

    For example, SEMs image electrons on the sample at a very high voltage. On the other hand, the current intensity is very small to avoid damage to the sample. On top of that, the observed sample has to be in a confined environment, in high vacuum. This can lead to several consequences for the material, depending on its chemical and physical resistance.

    The main problem is the accumulation of electrons on the surface of the sample, also known as the charging effect. This issue can be avoided by creating a conductive bridge linking the surface of the material to a part of the device which is at ground potential.

    An easier alternative is to change the vacuum level in the microscope according to the material specifications, which will lead to a massive discharging of the sample.

    The final option is a sputter coating device that can cover the material with a thin layer of gold or other conductive material. This will make it suitable for SEM analysis without meaningfully altering the structure of the sample.

    Polymers are generally very sensitive materials. The electron beam can damage them, especially when a very high voltage is applied. The electron emitted by the microscope can, in fact, interact with the delicate inter-molecular bonds and break them.

    Some SEMs provide a low emission current option that makes it possible to image the sample without damaging it.
