All DENSsolutions systems use patented Nano-Chip MEMS Technology

Nano-Chips are state-of-the-art functional sample carriers that replace traditional TEM Cu grids. Based on Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), they offer the unique ability to expand your application space and control the environment and stimuli locally on the Nano-Chip. Each Nano-Chip creates a micro-scale laboratory environment within your TEM. Due to its very low mass and minimal power consumption, the response times are extremely fast and performance highly reliable.

Unique MEMS Design for Optimal Stability

Nano-Chips are fabricated to ensure a stable, chemically inert and electrically insulated environment.

Heat at the Source

Localizing the heating to the same scale dimensions of your sample, ensures the greatest control, offers homogeneous temperature and maximizes the temperature reliability.

Controllable Response

Easy-to-use software for operational modes, custom profiling, real time temperature output and complete data logging.

Reliable Output

Robust localized closed-loop temperature feedback offers the ultimate in sample stability, temperature response time & accuracy.

Long Life-Time

> 90 hours at elevated temperatures without affecting your TEM performance.

Application Specific Fabrication

A range of Nano-Chip support film options to suit all application requirements.

Electrical properties of nanoscale material and microstructures
Material defect populations and electrical responses
Electromigration studies
Operating MEMs based mechanical testing devices
In-situ testing of solid-state energy devices

"In-situ TEM provides a new dimension in dynamic structural studies of a range of technologically important materials. The Department of Materials at Oxford will use the DENSsolutions sample heating holder in a number of projects related to catalysis and low dimensional carbon materials. We have chosen this solution for its unrivaled stability and control."
