What do metallographers actually do?

The microscope as the most important tool

Toni Vegaz Nguyen, who himself trained as a metallographer at the Lette Verein Berlin, explains what a metallographer does, why he needs microscopes for it.

Metallographers mainly deal with the microstructure of materials and contribute to quality assurance. This also includes mechanical-technological and non-destructive material testing, material development, and research of high-quality materials as well as damage analysis.

Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience becomes new labs@location partner of ZEISS

Visualizing the brain ultrastructure with ZEISS microscopes

MPFI and ZEISS launched “labs@location” partnership

The MPFI Electron Microscopy (EM) Core Facility of Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI) now is a ZEISS labs@location partner institution. MPFI will have access to state-of-the-art ZEISS technology before it is commercially available, providing researchers with innovative imaging tools that will empower their search for new insights into how the brain works. MPFI is only the third institution in the United States to earn the labs@location designation.

ZEISS optics have landed on the ISS

A team at Frankfurt’s Goethe University developed experiments to be performed in space

Alexander Gerst aboard the ISS with the three experiments in the space competition.

A team at Frankfurt’s Goethe University aims to perform experiments in space to gain insights into how our solar system was formed. Experimental Chondrule Formation aboard the ISS (EXCISS) is the name of the project which began its space mission on 17 November in a Cygnus transporter aboard the Antares rocket. It left the space station on Wallops Island, Virginia (USA) and has now arrived at the International Space Station.

The solar cells of the future

Oak Ridge National Labs researchers use ZEISS ORION NanoFab SIMS to characterize perovskite photovoltaic films

Perovskite solar cells

Solar cells made out of a perovskite-structured compound are the fastest-growing solar technology to date. Compared to traditional silicon solar cells, the raw materials used are cheap to produce, simple to manufacture, and their efficiencies are very high making them commercially attractive and a very promising material for high-efficiency optoelectronic applications. Very recently, researchers from the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee have employed a unique combination of imaging and characterization tools and atomic-level simulations to solve a longstanding debate about the internal structure of these fascinating materials.
