Scientists from the ISEN (Institut Supérieur de l’Électronique et du Numérique) in Lille, France, used photoelectron spectroscopy to investigate a new method for growing PbS nanoplatelets on InP surfaces.
Bioceramics are particularly useful in the repair and reconstruction of bone. A group of researchers at the University of Limoges investigated the impact of bioceramic surface topography and composition on protein adhesion forces.
During the last decade, research has shown that bio-oil fermentation by micro-organisms is a promising potential source of bio-fuel. Its renewability makes it a good alternative to bio-fuel production.
The goal of the NanoRef programme, involving multiple partners (LP-Cnam, INM, LPUB, Institut Fresnel, Novasic and LNE), is to develop a roughness standard with a quasi-continuum spatial frequency spectrum and to define the appropriate machining and polishing processes.
Bruno Grandidier, research scientist with the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), reports on his work, focused on understanding the electronic properties of silicon dangling bonds.
Nanolithography is a precise patterning technology used to fabricate functional nanostructures for applications in biosensors, advanced materials and extensively in the semiconductor sector for solar cells, printed electronics, LED, MEMS, etc.
Quantitative cathodoluminescence technology coupled with the power of Mountains® software made it possible to localize and identify degraded layers in state-of-the-art green laser diodes.

I myself have enjoyed working with Mountains® for a number of years. In my opinion, it is essential that AFM users work with specialized software packages such as those based on Digital Surf’s Mountains® platform.
