New experiments for TEM enabled by precession electron diffraction - high precision nanoscale strain mapping - high spatial resolution phase and orientation mapping - crystal structure characterization

2013-04-22 11:28:59

In a new study performed at the Center for Nanoscale Materials at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, researchers have for the first time seen the self-assembly of nanoparticle chains in situ, that is, in place as it occurs in real-time.

Ultrafast High-resolution Imaging In Real Time Could Be A Reality With New Research Discovery
2013-04-19 13:15:53

University of Melbourne In work published in Nature Communications, researchers from the University of Melbourne and the ARC Centre for Excellence in Coherent Xray Science have demonstrated that ultra short durations of electron bunches generated from laser-cooled atoms can be both very cold and ultra-fast. Lead researcher Associate Professor Robert Scholten said the surprising finding was an important step towards making ultrafast high-resolution electron imaging a reality. He said...

Blowing Glass At A Nano Scale

Researchers are improving the performance of technologies ranging from medical CT scanners to digital cameras using a system of models to extract specific information from huge collections of data and then reconstructing images like a jigsaw puzzle.

Cloud Computing Code Speeds Processing Of Data-intensive Microscopy Data
2013-02-01 10:33:43

In this week's Nature Methods, Salk researchers share a how-to secret for biologists: code for Amazon Cloud that significantly reduces the time necessary to process data-intensive microscopic images.
