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

Salk Institute 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. The method promises to speed research into the underlying causes of disease by making single-molecule microscopy of practical use for more laboratories. "This is an extremely cost-effective way for labs to process super-resolution images," says Hu Cang, Salk assistant...

Electron Beams That Possess An Inner Rotation Created
2012-11-05 13:28:11

Vienna University of Technology Vortex beams, rotating like a tornado, offer completely new possibilities for electron microscopy. A method of producing extremely intense vortex beams has been discovered at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna). Nowadays, electron microscopes are an essential tool, especially in the field of materials science. At TU Vienna, electron beams are being created that possess an inner rotation, similarly to a tornado. These "vortex beams" cannot only...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new type of device for microscopes has been developed, capable of creating a high-resolution image 100 times faster than regular equipment. Scientists at the University of Leicester have addressed the need for a rapid-scanning microscope, and published their findings in the journal PLoS ONE. The new device bolts onto a regular microscope, and then projects light through a system of mirrors on to the microscopic sample....

For the first time X-ray scientists have combined high-resolution imaging with 3-D viewing of the surface layer of material using X-ray vision in a way that does not damage the sample. This new technique expands the range of X-ray research possible for biology and many aspects of nanotechnology, particularly nanofilms, photonics, and micro- and nano-electronics. This new technique also reduces "guesswork" by eliminating the need for modeling-dependent structural simulation often used in...

A new advance in X-ray imaging has revealed the dramatic three-dimensional shape of gold nanocrystals, and is likely to shine a light on the structure of other nano-scale materials. Described today in Nature Communications, the new technique improves the quality of nanomaterial images, made using X-ray diffraction, by accurately correcting distortions in the X-ray light. Dr Jesse Clark, lead author of the study from the London Centre for Nanotechnology said: "With nanomaterials playing...

Resolution And Durability Improved By Microscope Probe-sharpening Technique
2012-07-06 12:06:52

A simple new improvement to an essential microscope component could greatly improve imaging for researchers who study the very small, from cells to computer chips. Joseph Lyding, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Illinois, led a group that developed a new microscope probe-sharpening technique. The technique is described in research published this week in the journal Nature Communications. Scanning probe microscopes provide images of tiny structures...

Looking into specimens on an atomic level in liquids, and understanding atomic processes so far regarded impossible The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) announced that a research team from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering has developed a technology that enables scientists and engineers to observe processes occurring in liquid media on the smallest possible scale which is less than a nanometer. Professor Jeong Yong Lee and Researcher Jong Min...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
