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.

After the successful FOM2014 conference held in Sydney, Australia this year, it is a pleasure to announce FOM2015, the next Focus on Microscopy conference. It will take place in Göttingen, Germany in the week before Easter from Sunday March 29 to Wednesday April 1, 2015. Focus on Microscopy 2015 is the continuation of a yearly interdisciplinary conference series running now for well over two decades. It presents the latest innovations and new trends in multi-dimensional light microscopy, super-resolution and image processing together with their application in biology, medicine and material sciences.

Third Harmonic Generation (THG) microscopy is a non-fluorescent multi-photon technique that combines the advantages of label-free imaging with restriction of signal generation to the focal spot of the scanning laser. It allows three-dimensional imaging of refraction index mismatches and of hemoglobin. We applied it to image mouse tissues and to characterize blood vessels and blood flow velocity. In small arteries, THG line scanning reveals the pulse velocity curve and hence the heart rate.

Cell-derived membrane vesicles (MVs) that are released in body fluids, like blood or saliva, are potential biomarkers for diseases, such as cancer. Techniques capable of measuring MV properties, like size and concentration, directly in biofluids are thus needed. We developed a microfluidic chip with integrated light sheet illumination, and used it to perform fluorescence Single Particle Tracking (fSPT) size and concentration measurements of MVs in human tumor interstitial fluid.

For a long time optical microscopy was held back by a presumed limitation: that it would never obtain a better resolution than half the wavelength of light. Helped by fluorescent molecules the Nobel Laureates in Chemistry 2014 ingeniously circumvented this limitation. Their ground-breaking work has brought optical microscopy into the nanodimension.

Delmic and Phenom World announce DelPhi, the world's first integrated tabletop fluorescence and electron microscope. Delmic produces high performance, user friendly, integrated solutions while Phenom World is a leading producer of electron microscopes. The DelPhi is a complete solution that makes it possible to do fast correlative microscopy with high overlay precision. The system is easy to use for both optical and electron microscopists and makes correlation intuitive and fully automated.

Coupled three-dimensional Ge quantum dot crystals (QDCs) are realized by multilayer growth of quantum dots (QDs) on patterned Si (001) substrates. With increasing the vertical periodic number of the QDCs, the photoluminescence (PL) spectral linewidth decreased exponentially, and so did the peak energy blueshift caused by increasing excitation power, which are attributed to the electronic coupling and thus the formation of miniband.
