Electron Backscatter Diffraction Meeting
Nov. 22, 2013

Electron Backscatter Diffraction Meeting

The annual EBSD meeting offers an opportunity for users and developers of EBSD and related techniques to meet and discuss their work, with a two day series of technical talks and a lively poster session. The meeting will take place from Monday 31 March - Tuesday 1 April 2014 at the Charles Darwin House, London, UK. This meeting will include talks that focus not only on technique development but also include applications to real engineering problems and scientific questions, as well as approaches to combine data obtained using EBSD with other techniques.

Embryo Development Uncovered in Real Time with Four-Lens Light-Sheet Microscope

Understanding embryo development is still one of the most intriguing questions facing today's biologists. Light-sheet microscopy is rapidly gaining recognition for whole organism imaging, allowing cell growth, differentiation and morphogenesis to be studied in detail. However, compared to confocal microscopy, the amount of data generated by this new technique is approximately three thousand times greater and poses new storage and image post-processing challenges.

Colour X-Ray Camera for the Analysis of Elements
Oct. 22, 2013

Colour X-Ray Camera for the Analysis of Elements

A unique colour X-ray camera went into operation at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR). With this camera, it will be possible for the researchers at the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (HIF), a part of the HZDR, to determine within a very short period of time the concentrations of such very finely dispersed metals as rare earth elements in ore minerals. The scientists celebrated the start of the camera's routine operation together with colleagues, partners, and companies who participated in the assembly of the camera. It was developed specifically to meet the institute's analytical requirements.
