Phenomenal ‘Image Fusion’ of Mass Spectrometry and Microscopy

Vanderbilt University researchers have achieved the first “image fusion” of mass spectrometry and microscopy — a technical tour de force that could, among other things, dramatically improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. [More]
ZEISS Introduces Ultra Load Stage for ZEISS Xradia Ultra 3D X-Ray Microscopes

ZEISS Introduces Ultra Load Stage for ZEISS Xradia Ultra 3D X-Ray Microscopes

ZEISS announces the new Ultra Load Stage for ZEISS Xradia Ultra 3D X-ray microscopes (XRM). Xradia Ultra Load Stage uniquely enables in situ nanomechanical testing -- compression, tension, indentation -- with non-destructive 3D tomographic imaging. For the first time, researchers will be able to image the evolution of structure in 3D under load down to 50 nm resolution. This new capability applies to a wide range of interests, covering both engineered and natural materials. [More]

Unique X-Ray Laser May Enable Easier Mapping of Medically Important Proteins

A unique X-ray laser innovation developed at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory may make it easier and faster for scientists to fully map medically important proteins whose structures have remained stubbornly out of reach. [More]
Scientists Explain Light-Induced Degradation of Lead Red in Van Goghs Paintings

Scientists Explain Light-Induced Degradation of Lead Red in Van Goghs Paintings

Red lead is most familiar to us in orange-red rustproof paint. Artists have treasured the brilliant color of this pigment for their paintings since ancient times. However, various ageing processes cause discoloration of the saturated hue over time. [More]
Nanowire Silicon Photonics Waveguides Help Broaden Spectrum of Frequency Combs into the Mid-Infrared

Nanowire Silicon Photonics Waveguides Help Broaden Spectrum of Frequency Combs into the Mid-Infrared

A frequency comb source is a light source with a spectrum containing thousands of laser lines. The development of these sources has been revolutionary for fundamental science. It has allowed the construction of a link between the optical part of the electromagnetic spectrum and the radio frequency part. As such, it has allowed researchers to determine optical frequencies with an unprecedented precision. [More]

Nobel Prize Winners to Share Insights on Microscopy and Trends in Optics at CLEO 2015

Sharing their insights on microscopy and trends in optics, six Nobel Prize winners and two laser luminaries will deliver plenary keynotes at CLEO 2015, the premier international forum for scientific and technical optics, 10 – 15 May 2015, at the San Jose Convention Center, California, USA. Nobel Prize winners in Chemistry, Stefan Hell and Eric Betzig, will join Nobel Prize winners in Physics, Steven Chu and W. E. Moerner, in the opening plenary session dedicated to the topic of Microscopy. [More]
SAPHELY Project Aims to Develop Nanophotonic Technology-Based Device for Early Diagnosis of Cancer

SAPHELY Project Aims to Develop Nanophotonic Technology-Based Device for Early Diagnosis of Cancer

To develop a device based on nanophotonic technology that enables a quick and early diagnosis of different types of cancer –specifically breast, prostate, lung and colorectal– analysing only two or three drops of blood. This is the objective of SAPHELY, a European project funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme, led by the Valencia Nanophotonics Technology Center of the Universitat Politècnica de València. The SYM group of Centre for Molecular Recognition and Technological Development is also participating in the project as the second partner from the UPV. [More]
