  • First Scanning Electron Microscope Case Study

    The first scanning electron microscope (SEM) was invented by Manfred von Ardenne in 1937 (McMullan). However, further development of the SEM was accomplished by Charles Oatley and his colleagues at Cambridge University (McMullan; Egerton 17). He and his colleagues acquired their first images from the SEM in 1951 (Egerton 17). The SEM was developed because if a TEM is utilized, a specimen must be made extremely thin to prevent the electrons from dispersing inside the specimen and so the electrons are not absorbed. This was the foremost limitation of the TEM that truly motivated the development of the SEM (McMullan; Egerton 16, 17). The SEM displays the ultrastructure of the specimen, the images have a large depth of focus and shows the surface…

  • Hydrothermal Synthesis Lab Report

    Technical Review of Hydrothermal Formation of Calcium Copper Tetrasilicate Introduction Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is used to obtain close-up images of samples with depth enabling high quality, 3D depictions on a microscopic level. It has been historically used to identify samples of interest such as bacterial biofilm, microtexture surfaces, and even cancer cells for diagnosis.[1, 2, 3] The first high magnification SEM was reported in a journal in 1938 by Ardenne after developing the…

  • 3.2 Analysis Of Chip Chips: Analysis Of Chip Formation

    3.2 Analysis of chip formation Fig. 7 shows the chip forms obtained during milling of the Al7075 (a) and MMCs (b) using the uncoated carbide inserts at a feed rate of 0.1 mm/tooth, machining speed of 290 m/min and axial depth of cut of 1.3 mm. The Al7075 chips formed during milling exhibited a smooth and shiny surface, and were in a semicircular and parabolic trapezoidal wave with a small radius and a saw-tooth-form, as shown in Fig. 7 (a). Fig. 7 (b) shows the chip shapes formed during the…

  • Lefloxacin Cocrystals Lab Report

    The diffraction pattern was scanned over 2 range of 3 to 50o at a scanning rate of 1o/min. The relative degree of crystallinity (RDC) was calculated to determine the degree of drug crystallinity in formulation compared to pure drug, by using the following equation18. (Maulvi et al., 2011) EXM…

  • EDS Analysis: FESEM And Trends Analysis Of Pure HA

    The interior structure and size of the as-synthesized pure HA, Sr0.1HA, La0.1HA and La0.1Sr0.1HA nanoparticles are further confirmed from HRTEM analysis and the images are depicted in Fig. 5(a)-(d). The TEM results reveal that as-synthesized nanoparticles are formed spherical shaped nanoparticles ranging from 20 to 84nm. The interior morphology of La0.1Sr0.1HA (Fig. 5 (d)) is found to be clear spherical like with a size reduced to 20nm. Based on the micrograph of La/Sr-HA significantly reduced…

  • Kanamycin Sulphate And Rifampicin Essay

    weight of the powder sample was used to calculate the bulk density before tapping. Approximately after 100 taps/min (until no volume change) the volume was observed (tapped volume) and used to calculate the tapped density from powder weight. Moisture content by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) The moisture contents of the supplied and spray-dried powders were determined using a thermogravimetric analyser (TA Instruments, New Castle, DE). After loading into a platinum sample pan, the powder…

  • Analysis Of Keratin From Chicken Feather

    2.4.1. Statistical Analyses: All the statistical analyses were done by using Design Expert© 9.0 (Stat-Ease, USA) software package program. Total 20 experimental studies were run to prepare porous scaffold and for each run % AP was calculated manually by use of Archimedes principle. The observed response values (% AP) then put into CCD model and generate a response surface image (Figure 2). After that, the numerical optimization was done by maintaining all parameter values “in range” and response…

  • Electron Microscopy Lab Report

    Using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) images and spectra were obtained from various samples of silica and platinum on silica. Each sample contains unique structures which were prepared by etching the surface of silica in different conditions. A scanning electron microscope is a type of electron microscope that produces images of topography and composition by scanning a sample with a focused beam of electrons. Samples can be observed in high vacuum,…

  • How Did Medical Technology Change Canada

    There are many different ways medical technology has progressed over the last one hundred years in Canada. The discovery of insulin helped doctors save many lives. The invention of the electron microscope changed the way scientists were able to view many different things including very small organisms. The invention of the external pacemaker saved many lives back in 1950, one of the inventors needed his own invention to save his life for some time. The discovery of the Cystic Fibrosis also…

  • Photocatalyst Analysis Of Tio2

    However, TiO2 is only sensitive to UV light region, because of its large band gap (~3.2 eV) [13], and fast recombination of electron/hole pair limits its photocatalytic reaction process [14]. Many attempts have been devoted to develop high-performance TiO2 photocatalysts for practical applications such as core–shell structure [15] nonmetal or metal doping [16–19], phase mixing [20,21], generation of oxygen vacancy [22], and coupling with other semiconductors [23–28]. In particular, coupling with…
