Video: How to save time and effort in materials’ characterization?

October 31, 2022

Researchers all over the world are using high-end microscopes to analyze materials down to the atomic scale. However, sample preparation takes time and effort. It is often a limiting factor for gaining big data sets. So what about automatizing the whole process, thus enabling scientists to have more time for the intepretation of the gained data?
Reza Hosseinabadi explains the benefits of robot microscopy and shows our in-house developed system for automated electron backscatter diffraction.
