Quantum materials—broadly defined as materials that under certain conditions and stimuli —are seeing increasing interest in the research community. This because of the existence of both new materials and phenomena, as well as applications in quantum information.
Electron microscopy is a crucial tool to explore quantum materials. This is because improvements in instrumentation keep pushing the boundaries of what we are able to see—structurally speaking—and what are we able to quantify—chemically speaking. Quantum materials have to be studied under the right conditions and stimuli to witness the manifestation of the relevant phenomenon. We are actively developing new tools in this area, and welcome both inquiries and opportunities to collaborate in this important new area of research.
Contact us for information about our newest developments in instrumentation to aid the TEM community in characterizing quantum materials and follow Hummingbird Scientific’s LinkedIn profile for new product announcements in this field coming in 2019.
