Researchers Develop Lattice Light Sheet Microscope

Researchers Develop Lattice Light Sheet Microscope

Over the last decade, powerful new microscopes have dramatically sharpened biologists' focus on the molecules that animate and propel life. Now, a new imaging platform developed by Eric Betzig and colleagues at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Research Campus offers another leap forward for light microscopy. [More]
TEM Tomography Provides Nanoscale, 3-D Visualization of Templated Block Copolymer Structure

TEM Tomography Provides Nanoscale, 3-D Visualization of Templated Block Copolymer Structure

A few short years ago, the idea of a practical manufacturing process based on getting molecules to organize themselves in useful nanoscale shapes seemed ... well, cool, sure, but also a little fantastic. [More]
Combined Nanocalorimeter-DTEM Captures Data during Extremely Fast Reactions in Thin-Film Materials

Combined Nanocalorimeter-DTEM Captures Data during Extremely Fast Reactions in Thin-Film Materials

When studying extremely fast reactions in ultrathin materials, two measurements are better than one. A new research tool invented by researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Johns Hopkins University and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) captures information about both temperature and crystal structure during extremely fast reactions in thin-film materials.

Electrostatic Charges Help View Internal Structures of Electronic Waves Trapped in Carbon Nanotubes

Electrostatic Charges Help View Internal Structures of Electronic Waves Trapped in Carbon Nanotubes

University of Oregon chemists have devised a way to see the internal structures of electronic waves trapped in carbon nanotubes by external electrostatic charges. [More]
Scientists Pinpoint Crucial Steps in DNA Replication

Scientists Pinpoint Crucial Steps in DNA Replication

The proteins that drive DNA replication—the force behind cellular growth and reproduction—are some of the most complex machines on Earth. The multistep replication process involves hundreds of atomic-scale moving parts that rapidly interact and transform. Mapping that dense molecular machinery is one of the most promising and challenging frontiers in medicine and biology. [More]
Microscopy Becomes Nanoscopy

Microscopy Becomes Nanoscopy

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) would like to congratulate Eric Betzig, Stefan W Hell and William E Moerner for their award of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014. NPL scientists are building upon their pioneering work, which has resulted in 'microscopy becoming nanoscopy'. [More]
