Smartphone Attachment Can Detect A Single Virus And Nanoparticles
2013-09-17 12:26:10

University of California Your smartphone now can see what the naked eye cannot: A single virus and bits of material less than one-thousandth of the width of a human hair. Aydogan Ozcan, a professor of electrical engineering and bioengineering at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, and his team have created a portable smartphone attachment that can be used to perform sophisticated field testing to detect viruses and bacteria without the need for bulky and...

Scientists Accidentally Discover Worlds Thinnest Glass
2013-09-12 14:58:57

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists from Cornell University and the University of Ulm in Germany happened upon a world record-setting discovery. A stroke of good luck led scientists to find the world’s thinnest piece of glass, measuring only two atoms thick. The glass was understandably easy to miss and was only seen when viewed through an electron microscope. The scientists called the team from Guinness World Records, which titled their discovery...

Studying Plant And Cell Growth In Space
2013-09-12 12:32:17

American Journal of Botany At work on the International Space Station, researchers studying plant and cell growth in space encountered a challenge. Imaging revealed interesting spaceflight-associated root morphologies. They needed to fix the tissues for further study back on Earth, but conventional fixation methods require separate fixatives depending on whether the sample is intended for molecular or morphological study. If the scientists wanted to study how spaceflight affected patterns...

Engineers Show How To Make Cost-effective, Ultra-high-performance Microscopes
2013-07-29 14:44:20

California Institute of Technology Engineers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have devised a method to convert a relatively inexpensive conventional microscope into a billion-pixel imaging system that significantly outperforms the best available standard microscope. Such a system could greatly improve the efficiency of digital pathology, in which specialists need to review large numbers of tissue samples. By making it possible to produce robust microscopes at low cost,...

It's not reruns of "The Jetsons", but researchers working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a new microscopy technique that uses a process similar to how an old tube television produces a picture–cathodoluminescence–to image nanoscale features. Combining the best features of optical and scanning electron microscopy, the fast, versatile, and high-resolution technique allows scientists to view surface and subsurface features potentially as...
