A new Emmy Noether Junior Research Group based in LMU's Faculty of Physics has just begun its quest for new methodologies in super-resolution microscopy specifically tailored for biomedical applications.
The goal of the newly established Emmy Noether Research Group in the Faculty of Physics at LMU is to enhance the technical capabilities of fluorescence microscopy specifically in the context of its biomedical application. The research team is headed by Dr. Ralf Jungmann, who holds a dual appointment as a Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried. Jungmann and his team hope to develop new DNA-based fluorescence probes that enable them to simultaneously visualize diverse cell components at the single-molecule level. moreJan. 16, 2015
The annual Meeting of the European Light Microscopy Initiative (ELMI) is an internationally recognized meeting on Light Microscopy and a unique blend of lectures and hands-on workshops on the newest microscopy research and techniques aimed at a life sciences audience. In 2015 it will take place near Barcelona, Spain, from the 19th to the 22nd of May in the small coastal village of Sitges. The location of the meeting will be a spacious resort with a fully developed conference infrastructure, the Melia Sitges Hotel. moreJan. 16, 2015
The International Year of Light is a global initiative which will highlight to the citizens of the world the importance of light and optical technologies in their lives, for their futures, and for the development of society. It is an unique opportunity to inspire, educate, and connect on a global scale. On 20 December 2013, The United Nations (UN) General Assembly 68th Session proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015). moreJan. 13, 2015

The report segments the global microscopy market by product, application, end user, and geography. The optical microscopy segment accounted for the largest share of the global microscopy market, by product. However, the electron microscopes segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the forecast period. Super-resolution microscopes are the key playing field in the microscopy product market, owing to ongoing technological advancements in this segment. moreDec. 25, 2014
Scientists from European XFEL successfully tested the first ultrafast X-ray detector to be used for experiments at the new research facility, which is currently under construction in the Hamburg area, Germany. The new Large Pixel Detector (LPD) is intended to be used from 2017 on a scientific instrument of the X-ray facility to observe ultrafast reactions including the formation and breaking of molecular bonds. The successful test is important progress toward recording molecular movies, which will enable scientists to better understand the elementary steps of chemical processes and to contribute to the development of more efficient industrial production methods. For a molecular movie, several thousands of snapshots will be taken within fractions of seconds and later assembled. more
