Why the open source hardware will change the Science

Why the open source hardware will change the Science

A year has already gone by the   launch of openQCM and there are many things to tell. When we have tried as private company, the way of the open source by launching one of the first scientific analytical instrument in the world completely open hardware, we would never have imagined this level of success.Continue Reading
