Advances in analytical equipment and characterization techniques have gone hand-in-hand with advancements in electronics.? As we push the limits of technology so must we push the limits of characterization in order to verify or even understand what weĆ¢??ve created, as well as to gain a deeper understanding of new phenomena.? Innovations in the science of microscopy and spectroscopy techniques (more…)
