Nature Hails ASU Paper on TEM Technique for High-Resolution Imaging of Crystal Structures

Nature Hails ASU Paper on TEM Technique for High-Resolution Imaging of Crystal Structures

In July 1978, Peter Buseck of Arizona State University, together with two postdoctoral researchers (also then at ASU), published a paper on a new technique for high-resolution imaging of crystal structures using transmission electron microscopes. Recently, the scientific journal Nature has hailed that paper as a milestone in the science of crystallography. At the same time, Nature also cited three other milestone crystallography papers.

P&G Utilizes ISS as Science Platform for Advanced Colloids Experiment-Microscopy-1 Research

One global marketer took to space to find a way to be leaner and greener back on Earth. For Procter & Gamble (P&G), product innovation and improvement relied on use of the International Space Station (ISS) as a science platform for the Advanced Colloids Experiment-Microscopy-1 (ACE-M-1) investigation.

Bead Probe and Optical Microscopy Manipulate 1-nm Synthetic Molecular Machine

A research group led by Professor Hiroyuki Noji, Department of Applied Chemistry, Graduate School of Engineering, University of Tokyo, successfully observed and touched the rotational motion of a 1-nm synthetic molecular machine through the application of a single-molecule capturing and manipulation technique using optical microscopy and a bead probe (single-molecule motion capturing), which allows visualization of molecular mechanical motion.

Ion Beam Microscope Helps Analyze Nano-Sized Fragments of 2,000-Year-Old Sarcophagus

He looks almost Byzantine or Greek, gazing doe-eyed over the viewer’s left shoulder, his mouth forming a slight pout, like a star-struck lover or perhaps a fan of the races witnessing his favorite charioteer losing control of his horses. [More]
Novel Microscopy Method Utilizes a Cannula and an LED Light to Make 3-D Images

Novel Microscopy Method Utilizes a Cannula and an LED Light to Make 3-D Images

A University of Utah team discovered a method for turning a small, $40 needle into a 3-D microscope capable of taking images up to 70 times smaller than the width of a human hair. This new method not only produces high-quality images comparable to expensive microscopes, but may be implanted into the brains of living mice for imaging at the cellular level. [More]
