The CIQTEK Application Center's Magnetic Resonance Application Lab relies on EPR200-Plus, EPR200M, EPR100 electronic paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy and has tested more than 600 samples for nearly 100 customers over the past year. In addition, CIQTEK has also undertaken the testing of nearly 300 samples for more than 100 third-party research users. CIQTEK provides reliable EPR (ESR) test data for scientific users and help them to publish high-level papers, such as in Nature Communications, Journal of Hazardous Materials, and other high-level journals.
CIQTEK Application Center staff working with Quantum Diamond Single Spin Spectroscopy for testing and analysis
The CIQTEK Quantum Diamond Single Spin Spectroscopy is a quantum experimental platform based on NV center spin magnetic resonance. By controlling basic physical quantities such as optics, electricity, and magnetism, it implements quantum manipulation and readout of NV center in diamond. Compared with traditional paramagnetic resonance and nuclear magnetic resonance, it has the unique advantages of single spin sensitivity and nanoscale spatial resolution.
CIQTEK Application Center staff working with QDAFM for testing and analysis
The CIQTEK Quantum Diamond Atomic Force Microscope (QDAFM) - Diamond III is a magnetic imaging instrument based on both NV center in diamond and AFM scanning imaging technology. By quantum control and readout of the spin state in the diamond probe, the magnetic property of samples is acquired quantitatively and non-invasively. With nanoscale spatial resolution and ultra-high detection sensitivity, QDAFM is an innovative technology to develop and study magnetic textures, high-density magnetic storage, and spintronics.
CIQTEK Application Center staff working with SEM5000 for testing and analysis
CIQTEK Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) Application Lab based on tungsten filament SEM3100 and Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope SEM5000 has served more than 160 customers in the industries of lithium battery, chip semiconductor, ceramics, construction materials, electronic components, chemicals, biomedical, environmental protection, metallic materials, etc. The total number of samples measured is nearly 1,000 and nearly 10,000 high-quality electron micrographs were issued. With CIQTEK SEM's high resolution, large field of view, large depth of field, optical navigation, and perfect automatic functions, customers can quickly obtain high-quality sample electron microscopy images.
CIQTEK Specific Surface & Pore Size Analyzer
CIQTEK Application Center's specific surface & pore size analyzer, specific surface area tester, and true density tester have completed more than 130 measurements for nearly 30 customers in various industries, including carbon materials, photocatalysis, battery capacitance, and catalytic materials, helping customers achieve high-quality journal article publication and product testing.
In the past year since the CIQTEK Application Center was opened, it has provided powerful support for the production and development of high-end scientific instruments and the application and transformation of scientific research results. With the wave of quantum technology industrialization, CIQTEK has created several scientific instruments that drive the progress of the industry with its continuous breakthroughs in core technology and excellent product engineering capabilities.
