Aberration-Corrected Transmission Electron Microscope Cuts Sheets of Graphene into Ribbons

Aberration-Corrected Transmission Electron Microscope Cuts Sheets of Graphene into Ribbons

Graphene, a material that consists of a lattice of carbon atoms, one atom thick, is widely touted as being the most electrically conductive material ever studied. However, not all graphene is the same. With so few atoms comprising the entirety of the material, the arrangement of each one has an impact on its overall function. [More]

Researchers Grow Plants in Fluorescence Microscopes to View Root Development in 3D

Researchers Grow Plants in Fluorescence Microscopes to View Root Development in 3D

Growing plants in a microscope is helping scientists to view roots developing in 3D and in real time. "With the growth conditions under our control, we can explore how roots respond to different environmental conditions", says Professor Ernst Stelzer (Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main, Germany). "This could help plant breeders to select crops which are more resistant to drought or flooding." [More]
