The new technique, dubbed DNA microscopy, uses only a pipette and some liquid reagents. The results are absolutely breathtaking. Cells shine like stars in a nebula, each pseudo-colored according to their genomic profiles.
A sophisticated electron detector has for the first time enabled scientists to reveal sub-angstrom detail in a 2D material.
This year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry went to a group of individuals who pushed the electron microscope to its very limit, figuring out how to use it to determine the position of every single atom in large, complex molecules.
A new type of microscope aims to reduce the number of surgeries needed by breast cancer patients by identifying cancerous tissue in real-time
Researchers from ITMO University have built a setup for recording holograms of tiny objects like living cells with a femtosecond speed.
Electron microscopes are renowned for their ability to peer down into the hidden world of the very small. A new technique that took 15 years to develop finally overcomes this optical limitation, producing the first ever multicolor electron microscope images.
Professor YongKeun Park of the Physics Department at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and his research team have developed a powerful method for 3D imaging of live cells without staining.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Ever since scientists began studying the brain, they’ve wanted to get a better look at what was going on. Researchers have poked and prodded and looked at dead cells under electron microscopes, but never before have they been able to get high resolution microscopic views of actual living brain cells as they function inside of a living animal. Now, thanks to work by physicist Stefan Hell and his colleagues at the Max Planck Institute in Germany, that dream is realized. In a paper published in Science, Hell and his team describe the workings of their marvelous discovery.
Scientists are building the world
An extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) microscope for creating the next generation of chips has been created by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s
Scientists in Germany have created new software that rapidly learns what researchers are looking for and automatically performs complex microscopy experiments.
NASA has begun testing a new multi-capability microscope on the International Space Station. It will help scientists study the effects of the space environment on physics and biology aboard the orbiting laboratory. The microscope is isolated from vibrations on the station, allowing it to obtain clear, high-resolution images. Using high-resolution magnification, scientists can examine microorganisms and individual cells of plants and animals, including humans.
