Diagnostics and detection are the cornerstones of knowledge, they allow us to detect causes, explain principles and find out new applications.
Each movement, each process, however complicated, will manifest itself somewhere and we can study its response in measurable quantities which would often elude us at first sight.
Natural part of studying the world
Inquisitive questions and looking for the answers is a natural and integral part of studying the causalities of the world. We can study what we see, what we sense or what we can measure in some way. Sometimes, though, we come across a limit to human and technical options. It is very easy to waive such limitations – we will just neglect it, since it is so tiny. However, it turns out that even the tiny can be of great importance. If we are to understand some of the more complex processes, we have to overcome these limitations.
We can have a look at microorganisms in various parts spectrum and continuously monitor their reactions to their surroundings. We can organize nanoparticles; we work with the atomic structure of materials. We measure and monitor how complex processes manifest themselves; we look for ideas how to measure and detect small changes. We monitor the response in thermal, mechanical and magnetic characteristics; we measure electrical characteristics; we study the interaction with the radiation and not even chemical analyses can hide from us.
We delve deeper in the nano-world
Technology around us keeps getting smaller and faster which is possible thanks to new materials and processing methods. We are balancing on the edge of confirming and disproving of theories where it is necessary to study the effects which have been neglected so far, but have grown in importance. It forces us to keep evolving and perfecting the diagnostic methods and devices – better understanding will not come without them. We are curious and always look for new ways where classical methods no longer do the job. We are not afraid to look differently at things.
