  1. Serial Time-Encoded Amplified Microscopy For Ultrafast Imaging Based On Multi-Wavelength Laser
    7/28/2014

    Ultrafast real-time optical imaging is an effective and important tool for studying dynamical events, such as shock waves, neural activity, laser surgery and chemical dynamics in living cells.

  2. StellarSCOPE™ System For Microscopy
    5/23/2014

    StellarNet has released the StellarSCOPE™ System that allows users to couple their favorite StellarNet spectrometer systems to a microscope. 

  3. New Microscopy Technique Improves Imaging At The Atomic Scale
    1/31/2014

    When capturing images at the atomic scale, even tiny movements of the sample can result in skewed or distorted images – and those movements are virtually impossible to prevent. Now microscopy researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a new technique that accounts for that movement and eliminates the distortion from the finished product.

  4. Microscopy Technique Could Help Computer Industry Develop 3-D Components
    6/25/2013

    A technique developed several years ago at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for improving optical microscopes now has been applied to monitoring the next generation of computer chip circuit components, potentially providing the semiconductor industry with a crucial tool for improving chips for the next decade or more.

  5. New Quantum Dot Technique Combines Best Of Optical And Electron Microscopy
    6/12/2013

    It's not reruns of "The Jetsons", but researchers working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a new microscopy technique that uses a process similar to how an old tube television produces a picture—cathodoluminescence—to image nanoscale features.
