A holographic technique for imaging electric fields in the vicinity of toner microparticles
Electrophotography techniques such as laser printing or photocopying involve the transfer of charged microparticles of toner or ink onto a rotating drum using electric fields. The microscopic electrostatic ...
The early earthworm catches on to full data release
To quote the American cartoonist Gary Larson: all things play a role in nature, even the lowly worm—but perhaps never in such a visually stunning way as that presented in two papers published today in the ...
Revealing the healing of Dino-sores
Scientists have used state-of-the-art imaging techniques to examine the cracks, fractures and breaks in the bones of a 150 million-year-old predatory dinosaur.
