It's like a Brownie camera for the digital age: The microscopic device fits on the head of a pin, contains no lenses or moving parts, costs pennies to make "“ and this Cornell-developed camera could revolutionize an array of science from surgery to robotics. The camera was invented in the lab of Alyosha Molnar, Cornell assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, and developed by a group led by Patrick Gill, a postdoctoral associate. Their working prototype, detailed...

Suspicion of melanoma: In the future, doctors can pull out a new type of microscope to get to the bottom of suspicious changes in the skin. It provides a high-resolution image of skin areas of any size "“ and so quickly that you can hold it in your hand without blurring the resulting picture.Are the dark spots on a patient's skin malignant? In the future, doctors will be able to take a closer look at suspicious blemishes using a new microscope "“ with results in just a few...

UCLA researchers have redefined the concept of a microscope by removing the lens to create a system that is small enough to fit in the palm of a hand but powerful enough to create three-dimensional tomographic images of miniscule samples. The advance, featured this week in the early online edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, represents the first demonstration of lens-free optical tomographic imaging on a chip, a technique capable of producing...

British researchers have unveiled a high-resolution optical microscope that uses tiny glass beads to image objects just 50 nanometers in size. The invention is the highest-resolution microscope ever demonstrated, and shatters the record for the smallest object the eye can see while providing a direct view into the "nanoscopic" world. Until now, standard optical microscopes only displayed objects around one micrometer in size clearly. By combining an optical microscope with a transparent...

A corrective strategy used by astronomers to sharpen images of celestial bodies can now help scientists see with more depth and clarity into the living brain of a mouse. Eric Betzig, a group leader at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Farm Research Campus, will present his team's latest work using adaptive optics for biology at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C. during a press conference on Thursday, Feb., 17, and a...
