First Solid-State Protein Lasers

Researchers at the University of St Andrews have produced the world's first solid-state protein lasers, capable of record performance and some capable of self-assembly, by harnessing the optical engineering skills of bioluminescent jellyfish. The findings, reported in the journal Nature Communications, have the potential to transform biomedical diagnosis of conditions such as cancer and advance the design of new materials.

Nano-Movies of Biomolecules: Using X-Ray Laser as Ultra Slow-Motion Camera

An international team, including scientists from DESY, has caught a light sensitive biomolecule at work with an X-ray laser. The study proves that X-ray lasers can capture the fast dynamics of biomolecules in ultra slow-motion, as the scientists led by Prof. Marius Schmidt from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee write in the journal Science. "Our study paves the way for movies from the nano world with atomic spatial resolution and ultrafast temporal resolution", says Schmidt.

Image Processing: Visualizing Mesoscale Cell Structures with cellPACK

Researchers can now explore viruses, bacteria and components of the human body in more detail than ever before with software developed at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI). In a study published online ahead of print December 1 by the journal Nature Methods, the researchers demonstrated how the software, called cellPACK, can be used to model viruses such as HIV.

Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy: Computer Simulations Sharpen Insights Into Molecules

The resolution of scanning tunnelling microscopes can be improved dramatically by attaching small molecules or atoms to their tip. The resulting images were the first to show the geometric structure of molecules and have generated a lot of interest among scientists over the last few years. Scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in Prague have now used computer simulations to gain deeper insights into the physics of these new imaging techniques. One of these techniques was presented in the journal Science by American scientists this spring. The results have now been published in the journal Physical Review Letters. more

EMIM 2015: European Molecular Imaging Meeting

The European Molecular Imaging Meeting (EMIM2015) will take place from 18-20 Mach 2015 in Tuebingen, Germany. Molecular imaging is rapidly moving to multimodality approaches, integrating more and more also microscopic imaging. To acknowledge this trend, the European Society for Molecular Imaging strives to integrate the themes of in vivo and molecular microscopy into existing activities of molecular imaging.
