Microscope Tracks Nanoparticles in 3-D
Microscope Tracks Nanoparticles in 3-D - Video of a fluorescent polystyrene
sphere 190nm in diameter captured with the NIST orthogonal tracking microscope.
The view is of an upper-left corner of the sample well. The glowing ball at
the bottom right of the image is the particle, the other two moving glows are
A clever new microscope design allows nanotechnology researchers at the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to track the motions of nanoparticles
in solution as they dart around in three dimensions.
