Science has limits imposed by the laws of physics that constrain discoveries and the advance of knowledge. In microscopy, up until the beginning of the 21st century, the diffraction limit of light was an unbreakable barrier.Download
Readers of the RMS Journal of Microscopy were treated to an intriguing paper published in the June issue, in which Texas A&M University Professor Dr Lawrence Griffing explores the history of a painting, Portrait of a mathematician, attributed to Mary Beale, circa 1680Download
Imagine what it would be like to continue with your research or having your students carry on working on their projects – all remotely using real instruments…Download
This busy setting, combined with the growth – and noise – of the surrounding urban environment, creates considerable problems for electron microscopists, as the quality of the results depends heavily on maintaining a stable operating environment, free from vibration and external magnetic fields.Download
As an ASTS, my role is to provide academia and industry with solutions, both knowledge and equipment-based, to move them forward in their own research challenges.Download
The use of scanning probe electrochemistry techniques is growing, and has reached traditional fields from batteries to biology, and even some unexpected ones like fine art, forensics, and meteorites.Download
The JOBS module for Nikon’s NIS Elements software changes this by offering researchers without programming expertise the possibility of unlocking the full potential of their system in terms of both flexibility and massively increasing their productivity by having the system run in an unattended and unbiased, reproducible way.Download
