Optimized ZEISS OPMI PENTERO 800 Surgical Microscope Enables Better Visualization in Complex Reconstructive Surgery

The capabilities of the OPMI® PENTERO® 800 surgical microscopes from ZEISS for reconstructive surgery have been enhanced by the introduction of the INFRARED 800 module.

Flexible Microlenses that can Capture Panoramic Images have been Developed

Flexible Microlenses that can Capture Panoramic Images have been Developed

A team of engineers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison have developed miniature lenses with a wide range of vision inspired by the multi-faceted eyes of insects. For the first time ever, flexible, Fresnel zone plate microlenses featuring a large field of view have been developed based on this novel approach.

Complementary Microscopy Helps Solve Structure of Lithium- and Manganese-Rich Transition Metal Oxides

Complementary Microscopy Helps Solve Structure of Lithium- and Manganese-Rich Transition Metal Oxides

Berkeley Lab scientists unravel structural ambiguities in lithium-rich transition metal oxides.

High-Speed AFM Reveals Deformation of Cell Membranes by Protein Complex

High-Speed AFM Reveals Deformation of Cell Membranes by Protein Complex

Cell membranes are very elastic. They can become distorted when they are asked to do so, when the cell divides, or when a virus detaches itself from the cell. In both cases, the membrane is deformed by a protein complex called ESCRT-III.

X-Ray Microscopy Reveals Inner Workings of Tiny Fossil

The inner workings of a tiny fossil have been studied using X-ray microscopy, revealing evidence of the digestive system for the first time.

EMSL’s Q-Wing Microscopes Help Visualize Components of Complex Samples with Unprecedented Detail

EMSL’s Q-Wing Microscopes Help Visualize Components of Complex Samples with Unprecedented Detail

Sometimes scientists need space for a little quiet time. At EMSL, one entire wing of the building was designed to provide just such a place. However, the Quiet Wing wasn’t built to give researchers somewhere to relax.

New High-Speed Microscope Produces Images of Entire Organisms with Enough Resolution

New High-Speed Microscope Produces Images of Entire Organisms with Enough Resolution

A new microscope developed at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Research Campus is giving scientists a clearer, more comprehensive view of biological processes as they unfold in living animals.
