A newly developed multi-frequency method results in a brief measurement time of just a few seconds rather than the traditional 10 minutes.
Researchers at Art-Science production company, Ohme, in Brussels, have created a choreographed audio-visual performance, ‘Tales of Entropy’, following the physical changes of organic materials as temperature changes (from crystal, to liquid crystal, to liquid), using Linkam temperature controlled stages.
To create high-resolution, 3D images of tissues such as the brain, researchers often use two-photon microscopy, which involves aiming a high-intensity laser at the specimen to induce fluorescence excitation.
Optical Surfaces Ltd. announce a new series of Reflective Beam Expanders with an output clear aperture of 75mm and a selection of magnifications, which are designed for researchers requiring high performance and ease-of-use.
A team of scientists led by the Department of Applied Physics at Osaka University, the Department of Physics and Electronics at Osaka Prefecture University, and the Department of Materials Chemistry at Nagoya University used photoinduced force microscopy to map out the forces acting on quantum dots in three dimensions.
Organic light-emitting diodes are widely used in display technology and are also being investigated for lighting applications.
A new technique to look at tumors under the microscope has revealed the cellular make-up of Wilm's tumors, a childhood kidney cancer, in unprecedented detail
Light--and all waves--can bend around the corners of obstacles found along its path. Because of this phenomenon, called diffraction, it is impossible to focus light onto a spot that is smaller than half its wavelength.
A team at the University of Sheffield, UK, present the findings of its latest research prior to peer review that demonstrate the efficacy of a novel method of characterizing metastatic breast tumors with atomic force microscopy (AFM).
Electrical engineers from the University of California San Diego have now designed a novel technology that enhances the resolution of a normal light microscope so that it can be utilized to directly visualize the intricate details and structures in living cells.
