Science Video Series: Under The Scanning Electron Microscope

We are currently making a science video series about scanning electron microscopy studies. In these videos we discuss the sample preparation and show how things actually look like in the microscopic scale.

Videos can be seen in our YouTube channel.

The scanning electron microscopy images made in these studies are uploaded to our gallery.

New Salt Spray Test Chamber

The corrosion scientists of the University of Tartu have a new expensive toy – a salt spray test chamber that allows to study the performance of materials and protective coatings similar to real conditions.

X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF)

We have started making a new science video about X-Ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF). In this 6 minute video we will explain with 3D animations the basics of this materials characterization technique and do a demonstrations where we use XRF to measure the elemental composition of an ancient coin.

This video will be published in October 2016.
