Carl Zeiss Microscopes on World Tour

Zeiss on Your Campus (ZOYC) by Carl Zeiss is a traveling tour bringing free microscopy workshops to universities and institutes throughout the world and has attracted more than 2000 attendees since. The tour was launched in 2009 in the United States and was expanded to Europe, Asia and Latin and South America this year, beginning in March.

ZOYC provides scientists and their students with an opportunity to attend educational seminars and hands-on workshops focusing on the fundamentals of various microscopy techniques. more

Super-Resolution Microscopy: Nanorulers Made of DNA

For only a few years, it has been possible to resolve biological structures down to the molecular scale with light microscopy, termed super-resolution microscopy. This has led to a number of new insights into biological processes. However, there have been limits to the techniques: so far it has been difficult to distinguish between sample specific and microscope specific error sources if the images were blurry. Moreover, different techniques could not easily be compared. more

Construction of Compact X-ray Lasers at Ultra-short Wavelengths

To look at small objects typically requires big machines. For example, the study of single atoms with a laser requires x-ray radiation of such high energy that it is only produced by accelerating electrons in large facilities. Researchers at the Riken SPring-8 Center in Harima have developed a more affordable electron laser design, the SPring-8 Angstrom Compact free-electron Laser (SACLA), which is not only compact and therefore economic to build but also delivers x-rays with unprecedented short wavelengths. Results were published in Nature Photonics.
