EU Attract grant for camera that sees chemical composition
A consortium of DIFFER, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and DIFFER spin-off Chromodynamics has received a €100,000 grant to develop RAMANTIS, a camera system that can see the chemical composition of materials and biological tissues. RAMANTIS will be able to observe and analyze up to 10 different wavelengths of light at the same time. This will make it possible to perform real-time 2D Raman Imaging, a process that previously took seconds to days.

Metal doping enhances CO2 capturing material
Materials to capture CO2 from flue gas can be made to operate at up to 50 degrees lower temperatures by adding small amounts of transition metals such as zinc or nickel, report DIFFER researchers Mike Gleeson, Tesfaye Belete and Richard van de Sanden in the Journal of CO2 Utilization.

Snufje metaal verbetert afvang van CO2
Door een kleine dosis metaal zoals zink of nikkel werken materialen voor CO2-afvang uit rookgassen al bij tot 50 oC lagere temperatuur dan normaal, ontdekten onderzoekers van het Nederlandse instituut voor energieonderzoek DIFFER. Wetenschappers Mike Gleeson, Tesfaye Belete en Richard van de Sanden publiceerden hun werk in the Journal of CO2 Utilization.
