A new pen-like microscope can be used to detect cancer on a whole new level
A new pen-like microscope has been developed by researchers from the University of Washington in order to help doctors detect cancer cells more efficiently
New Microscope Technique Could Speed Identification Of Deadly Bacteria
A new way of rapidly identifying bacteria, which requires a slight modification to a simple microscope, may change the way doctors approach treatment for patients who develop potentially deadly infect...
Turn Your Smartphone Into A 150x Microscope
One of my favourite activities as a kid was to muck about with my dad's microscope, poring over ancient (in my mind) slides bearing legends such as "urea", "bee pollen" and "spores of smut". The teeny...
The Random Raman Laser: A New Light Source For Microcosmos
In modern microscope imaging techniques, lasers are used as light sources because they can deliver fast pulsed and extremely high-intensity radiation to a target, allowing for rapid image acquisition....
DSLR Add-On Brings Features Like Lytro-Style Refocusing to Any Camera
Lytro may have made a splash when the company first burst onto the scene with its ‘snap now, focus later’ technology, but the competition has been growing steadily ever since. In addition to companies...
Lytro's new camera: Shoot now, focus later
Photo startup Lytro's much-buzzed-about digital camera lets you change the focus of a picture after it's taken. The company "is intent on making conventional cameras a thing of the past"...
The First Image Ever of a Hydrogen Atom's Orbital Structure
What you’re looking at is the first direct observation of an atom’s electron orbital — an atom's actual wave function! To capture the image, researchers utilized a new quantum microscope — an incredib...

New Method Images Single Molecules and Atoms
The ultimate dream of nanotechnology is to be able to manipulate matter atom by atom. To do that, we first need to know what they look like. In what could be a major step in that direction, resear...
First-ever high-resolution images of a molecule as it breaks and reforms chemical bonds
When Felix Fischer of the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) set out to develop nanostructures made of graphene using a new, controlled approach to chemic...
Microscope with 50-nanometre resolution demonstrated
UK researchers have demonstrated the highest-resolution optical microscope ever - aided by tiny glass beads. The microscope imaged objects down to just 50 billionths of a metre to yield a never-before...
