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...

Word of the Day
prosopography
  • a study of the individuals in a group of people within a specific context and their relationships.
  • In rhetoric, the description of any one's personal appearance.
The word 'prosopography' comes from a Latin word meaning 'description of a person’s appearance' from Greek roots meaning 'face' or 'person' and 'writing'.
