Exploring the XRD system at IFUAP

A scientist is continuously seeking the truth of nature. There is a jungle of fields to explore from material science to the universe, a scientist could be doing experiments at the laboratory, or maybe they just need a comfortable place to think and create new theories which will explain new phenomena.  Training day: XRD System  and software High Score Plus, BUAP Today I was able to explore the XRD system at IFUAP (shown in the above picture). The purpose of…

AFM Training – Tip functions

Equipmen: AFM Bruker Dimension Edge  Responsible research: Dr. Francisco Flores Day: 2 Today I observe how a point for AFM is changed: We need to choose it depending on the material and the measurement we want to perform. For example, the sample of today is gold nanoparticles over a glass substrate then we have tried the TAP300Al-G which is a probe from the company BudgetSensors. This probe is designed for AFM in Tapping mode and is coated with reflective aluminum.…

AFM training: Bruker Dimension Edge at IFUAP

Equipmen: AFM Bruker Dimension Edge  Responsible research: Dr. Francisco Flores  Day: 1 First training day on AFM Bruker Dimension Edge AFM at the Physics Institute of BUAP. This equipment will allow the measurement of topography properties like roughness and grain size. The researcher in charge explains too that it's possible to acquire electrical conductivity and work function from the surface of the films.  URL: Product overview    Model: AFM - Bruker Dimension Edge  Close up of AFM equipment Connection block card:…
