NANOSENSORS adds new Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensors (MSS) type for liquid applications to Special Developments List

This is the raw sensors platform. It still needs to be coated with a detection layer by the individual researcher in order to become a fully functional sensor.

The Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensor (MSS) is a device to detect specific components in gaseous phase with high sensitivity using a piezoresistive nanomechanical sensor. This device… 

Signal Origin of Electrochemical Strain Microscopy and Link to Local Chemical Distribution in Solid State Electrolytes

Figure 1 from Nino Schön et al. «Signal Origin of Electrochemical Strain Microscopy and Link to Local Chemical Distribution in Solid State Electrolytes”: a) Topography, b) deflection error, and c) corresponding cantilever deflection change (Dac) map of a 30 µm × 30 µm area of LATP. d) Noncontact EFM amplitude map in the same area. NANOSENSORS conductive platinum-iridium coated PointProbe Plus PPP-EFM AFM probes were used.

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),…
