Signal Origin of Electrochemical Strain Microscopy and Link to Local Chemical Distribution in Solid State Electrolytes via NANOSENSORS™Mon Apr 19 2021

Signal Origin of Electrochemical Strain Microscopy and Link to Local Chemical Distribution in Solid State Electrolytes
Solid state electrolytes (SSEs) are interesting materials that could potentially replace the currently used organic electrolytes in lithium‐ion batteries (LIBs). * Electrochemical strain microscopy (ESM), a research technique based on atomic force microscopy (AFM), was developed to locally probe ion movement in electrodes based on electro-chemo-mechanical coupling measure through the AFM cantilever deflection. It can […]

On the magnetic nanostructure of a Co–Cu alloy processed by high-pressure torsion
Lately the production of nanocrystalline magnetic materials starting with coarse grained materials (top-down approach) has received increasing interest.* The advantage of the top-down approach compared to the bottom-up approach ( e.g. using melt spinning, stacking of sheets, annealing treatments and other processing steps) is that rare-earth elements and additional processing steps such as stacking of […]
The authors of the cited article used NANOSENSORS™ SSS-MFMR magnetic AFM probes optimized for high resolution magnetic force imaging in the quantitative analysis of the magnetic microstructure by magnetic force microscopy to understand the measured magnetic properties and correlated this to the detected changes in coercivity. https://www.nanosensors.com/supersharpsilicon-magnetic…
The achieved results by Martin Stückler et al. show that the rising coercivity can be explained by a magnetic hardening effect occurring in context with spinodal decomposition.* Read more...
