Fast 3D High-Resolution Microscopy: Novel Approach for Precise Biological Imaging

A team of researchers from the IMP Vienna together with collaborators from the Vienna University of Technology established a new microscopy technique which greatly enhances resolution in the third dimension. In a simple set-up, the scientists used the translation of position information of fluorescent markers into color information. Overcoming the need for scanning the depth of a sample, they were able to generate the precise 3D information at the same speed as it would take to acquire a 2D image. The general principle of this innovative approach can be used for broader applications and is published online in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

New Electron Microscope: Capturing Movements of Atoms and Molecules

A new electron microscope invented at Michigan State University allows scientists to zoom in on the movements of atoms and molecules. Electron microscopes allow scientists to see the structure of microorganisms, cells, metals, crystals and other tiny structures that weren't visible with light microscopes. But while these images have allowed scientists to make great discoveries, the relationship between structure and function could only be estimated because of static images. In the 1990s, researchers added a fourth dimension - time - by using a laser to capture images of gaseous molecules as they were reacting.

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.

Zeiss Grants License for LED Fluorescence Excitation to Lumencor

Zeiss has granted a license for patents relating to LED fluorescence excitation in microscopy to Lumencor (Beaverton, USA). These patents protect the use of light emitting diodes for the excitation of fluorescence radiation in light microscopes. The property rights, which are valid in the USA and Canada, were acquired by Zeiss in 2005.
