New Imaging Technology Takes Cues From Astronomy And Ophthalmology To Make Microscope Images Sharper
2014-04-14 14:55:46

Howard Hughes Medical Institute The complexity of biology can befuddle even the most sophisticated light microscopes. Biological samples bend light in unpredictable ways, returning difficult-to-interpret information to the microscope and distorting the resulting image. New imaging technology developed at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Farm Research Campus rapidly corrects for these distortions and sharpens high-resolution images over large volumes of tissue. The approach,...

2012-04-20 03:38:40

[ Watch the Video ] A critical component of the James Webb Space Telescope is its new technology. Much of the technology for the Webb had to be conceived, designed and built specifically to enable it to see farther back in time. As with many NASA technological advances, some of the innovations are being used to benefit humankind in many other industries. The Webb telescope is the world's next-generation space observatory and successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. The most powerful...
