Faraday Conference – ECR Themes

16 November 2021 Session: Advanced X-ray and Neutron techniques Dr Stephen Price is an Industrial Research Fellow with the University of Sheffield, and will be presenting at the ECR day of the Faraday Institution Conference 2021. He will present an overview of the advanced X-ray and analytical techniques Finden has been developing, and how these […]

Watch recorded webinar on Chemical Tomography and Neural Networks

Our Research and Development Lead Scientist Antony Vamvakeros gave a webinar on chemical tomography and neural networks on the 20th May hosted by the Neel Institut Synchrotron X-ray chemical tomography methods combine a scattering or spectroscopic technique with a tomographic data acquisition approach. These non-destructive methods yield a cross-section of the studied sample where each […]

Our latest work on the characterisation of NMC electodes used in Li-ion batteries at the PCCP published

Our latest work on the characterisation of NMC electodes used in Li-ion batteries at the PCCP has been published in a new paper, “Exploring cycling induced crystallographic change in NMC with X-ray diffraction computed tomography” in the journal Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics. The research was carried out in collaboration with the Electrochemical Innovation Lab (EIL) […]

New work on sustainable iron-based oxygen carriers for hydrogen production published

Finden Ltd collaborated with Yoran De Vos (Ghent University) to look at the evolution of an Fe-based oxygen carrier under operando conditions. The project has resulted in a paper published in the International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control titled, “Sustainable iron-based oxygen carriers for hydrogen production – Real-time operando investigation.“ In this work, a spray-dried […]

Our paper on the first X-ray diffraction tomography experiment of real-life size micro-tubular SOFC has been published in Nature Communications

Our new work on a state-of-the-art SOFC has been published in a paper “Design of next-generation ceramic fuel cells and real-time characterization with synchrotron X-ray diffraction computed tomography“ in Nature Communications. Solid oxide fuel cells offer a clean and efficient means of producing electricity through a variety of fuels. However, miniaturization of cell dimensions for […]

Tomographic software nDTomo released!

The nDTomo software is now publicly available for download. Developed by our research scientist Dr. Antony Vamvakeros and primarily designed for processing XRD-CT data, it can be used for other tomographic techniques as well. The software suite contains GUIs for the acquisition, pre-processing and analysis of X-ray chemical tomography data. Download it at https://github.com/antonyvam/ndtomo

A masterpiece on a on a pin head

Finden Ltd’s work with microfocus X-ray beams at Diamond Light Source recently appeared in an article in The Telegraph, “Old Master paintings shown to be ‘crusting over’ by microscope 10 billion times brighter than the Sun.” Dr. Stephen Price explains in the article, “We were able to plot the different chemistry from the surface down […]

5D operando tomographic diffraction imaging of a catalyst bed

Our paper on 5D operando tomographic diffraction imaging of a catalyst bed has been published online by Nature Communications, volume 9, Article number: 4751 (2018) We report the results from the first 5D tomographic diffraction imaging experiment of a complex Ni–Pd/CeO2–ZrO2/Al2O3 catalyst used for methane reforming. This five-dimensional (three spatial, one scattering and one dimension to denote time/imposed […]
