CardioMEMS HF System Helps Doctors and Patients Manage Heart Failure

CardioMEMS HF System Helps Doctors and Patients Manage Heart Failure

Unexpected trips to the hospital are inconvenient and worrisome for anyone, but for congestive heart failure sufferers, they can be all too frequent. In a rural state like West Virginia, distance can be a factor. [More]
NIST Technique Enables Optical Microscopes to Measure 3D Shapes at Nanometer-Scale Resolution

NIST Technique Enables Optical Microscopes to Measure 3D Shapes at Nanometer-Scale Resolution

Recent experiments have confirmed* that a technique developed several years ago at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) can enable optical microscopes to measure the three-dimensional (3-D) shape of objects at nanometer-scale resolution—far below the normal resolution limit for optical microscopy (about 250 nanometers for green light).
