3D Ptychography Helps Peer into Layer Structure of Coated Tandem Solar Cell

The sharp X-ray vision of DESY's research light source PETRA III paves the way for a new technique to produce cheap, flexible and versatile double solar cells. [More]
Ommaditias' Nanonipples Complicate Analysis of Common Fly’s Compound Eyes

Ommaditias' Nanonipples Complicate Analysis of Common Fly’s Compound Eyes

In our vain human struggle to kill flies, our hands and swatters often come up lacking. This is due to no fault of our own, but rather to flies' compound eyes. Arranged in a hexagonal, convex pattern, compound eyes consist of hundreds of optical units called ommatidia, which together bestow upon flies a nearly 360-degree field of vision. [More]

New Study Reveals Blood Stored in Banks Becomes Stiffer with Time

New Study Reveals Blood Stored in Banks Becomes Stiffer with Time

It may look like fresh blood and flow like fresh blood, but the longer blood is stored, the less it can carry oxygen into the tiny microcapillaries of the body, says a new study from University of Illinois researchers. [More]

University of Bristol Installs NanoESCA Ultra High Vacuum Photo Electron Emission Microscopy System

A cutting edge system for high resolution imaging and spectroscopy – the first of its kind in the UK – will be installed at the University of Bristol thanks to a grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). [More]
FEI Releases New Teneo VS Scanning Electron Microscope for Life Science Applications

FEI Releases New Teneo VS Scanning Electron Microscope for Life Science Applications

FEI announced today its new Teneo VS™ scanning electron microscope (SEM), which offers a VolumeScope™ capability for life science applications. The Teneo platform tightly integrates FEI's latest-generation SEM with VolumeScope, an in-chamber microtome and proprietary analytical software to provide fully-automated, large-volume reconstructions with dramatically improved z-axis resolution.

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.

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

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.
