ORNL Z-contrast microscope first to resolve, identify individual light atoms
Material scientists have high hopes that one day they will be able place a sample of unknown substance under a microscope and be able to name individual atoms and what structure they form.
There is good news for the global effort to reduce the amount of lead in the environment and for the growing array of technologies that rely upon the piezoelectric effect.
Researchers from Lehigh and Rice universities combine electron microscopy and spectroscopy techniques to shed new light on a tungstated zirconia catalyst.
NEW YORK, Oct.
Science fiction fans still have another two months of waiting for the new Star Trek movie, but fans of actual science can feast their eyes now on the first movie ever of carbon atoms moving along the edge of a graphene crystal.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have discovered that a carefully built magnetic sandwich that interleaves layers of a magnetic alloy with a few nanometers of silver â€œspacerâ€ has dramatically enhanced sensitivityâ€”a 400-fold improvement in some cases.
Scientists have always wanted to take a closer look at biological systems and materials. From the magnifying glass to the electron microscope, they have developed ever-increasingly sophisticated imaging devices.
FEI Company (Nasdaq: FEIC), a leading provider of high-resolution imaging and analysis systems, announced today that three of the top life sciences research centers in Asia--National University of Singapore, Tsinghua University (Beijing), and the Institute of Biophysics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing)--have selected the Titan Krios(TM) transmission electron microscope (TEM) to support their research programs in structural molecular biology.
