For the 4th time in a row, we are very proud to announce that Imina Technologies has been ranked in the TOP 100 of the best Swiss startups. The selection is made by a panel of 100 experts to elect, among several hundreds of startups, the most promising and established companies.
Benoît Dagon, CEO of Imina Technologies, talks to Will Soutters from AZoNano.com about the miBot nanomanipulator and our solutions for sample characterization under electron and light microscopes, in their latest Insights from Industry interview. Read the interview.
To celebrate Imina Technologies 5th anniversary together, you are invited to our first webinar where we will be honored to welcome two keynote speakers, Prof. Urs Staufer (TU Delft) and Prof. Ton van Helvoort (NTNU Trondheim). They will talk about their research on graphene and nanowires and the challenges they encounter in handling and characterizing these materials. Read more about the program and register online
This application note reports about the electromechanical characterization of the enhanced sensitivity of organic piezoresistive microcantilevers developed at the IMS Laboratory of the Université de Bordeaux, France. Together with their electrical probing capabilities, the sub-micron positioning resolution and the high mechanical stability of the miBot micromanipulators were exploited to carry out the characterization procedure of these systems. Results of that experiment were published in the March issue of Sensors and Actuators. Read more
Imina Technologies is pleased to announce the organization of the contest “Win a Swiss Watch” at booth # A32 during the exhibition of scientific instruments that will take place during the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft Spring Meeting 2014 in Dresden, Germany.
This application note reports on the use of Imina Technologies miBot manipulators by scientists at the Laboratoire de Nanotechnologie et d’Instrumentation Optique of Université de Technologie de Troyes to carry out the delicate operation that consists in positioning single ZnO nanowires grown by metalorganic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD) at specific locations on the substrate in order to be able characterize their photoconductive properties. Results of that experiment were published in the special issue of physica status solidi (c). Read more
Localized characterization of photovoltaic materials is a critical part in the research of novel solar cells since the PV properties can be affected at small scales. This application note reports on using Imina Technologies miBots to precisely bring laser light coupled in an optical fiber above the sample surface and electrical probes to contact the device. Typical characteristics of the sample are measured with an Agilent/HP 4156A semiconductor analyzer. Read more
