The Linkam team recently visited northern France for the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) spring meeting which was held at the Lille Grand Palais from the 3rd to 5th May. This was one of our bigger conferences of the year, with over 80 international exhibitors and an average of 2500 attendees each year.

We presented a range of products including the Imaging Station, TST350, RH95 and LTS420E-PB4. The RH95 again proved to be popular, this time within the materials field, and the LTS420E-PB4 also generated a great deal of excitement.

2D materials proved to be a favoured topic with many talks centred on graphene commercialisation and applications as they provide a great set of electrical and conductive properties due to their unique single atomic layer structure. With scientists focusing on unravelling more about their scientific nature, the market for such products is likely to expand, and Linkam’s probe stages are ideally suited to analysing electrical measurements across these materials.

It was a successful trip for Linkam as it highlighted the demand for our products across a variety of different material fields, as well as stimulating ideas for the future. It also gave us the opportunity to meet plenty of new faces and catch up with some old friends. 

We would like to thank the E-MRS, for hosting such a successful event, and everyone who came over to our booth - we look forward to seeing you all again at the next materials conference.
