COLLEGE PARK, MD -- Scientists from four Polish research institutions called on the Maryland NanoCenter’s Advanced Imaging and Microscopy (AIM) Lab to complete their investigation of bimetallic wire-like nanostructures created by magnetic-field-assisted synthesis.

The team published results that show they can make iron– nickel nanochains by using the magnetic field as a constraint to separate the two metals. However, they needed help characterizing the distribution of the metals within the tiny structures, for which the AIM Lab’s TEM and accompanying EDS instruments were ideally suited. 

“Since the AIM Lab has access to advanced electron microscopy equipment and the team is well experienced in this field, we asked Dr. Wen-An Chiou whether he would be interested in the electron microscopy investigations of several wire-like nanostructures,” said Dr. Marcin Krajewski of the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences. “The collaboration with the AIM Lab is very fruitful and we hope it will still be developing. As the outcome of our collaboration, we have recently shown the results of our joint researches during the Microscopy & Microanalysis 2019 Meeting, with a few papers still to be published.”

“We often perform research for partnering organizations, and this is one example of the interesting results that come of collaborations,” said Dr. Wen-An Chiou, the director of the AIM Lab.

The team hailed from the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research Polish Academy of Sciences, the University of Warsaw, the Institute of Physics Polish Academy of Sciences, and the Warsaw University of Technology, all located in Warsaw, Poland.
