New technique enables shaping of electron beams

A new technique that combines electron microscopy and laser technology enables programmable, arbitrary shaping of electron beams. It can potentially be used for optimizing electron optics and for adaptive electron microscopy, ...

Scientists twirl liquid light into time-periodic cluster

Researchers from Skoltech, the University of Iceland, and the University of Southampton have demonstrated the formation of an odd never-before-seen entity from the realm of quantum physics: a cluster of optical vortices with ...

Nanochannels light the way toward new medicine

To develop new drugs and vaccines, detailed knowledge about nature's smallest biological building blocks—biomolecules—is required. Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, are now presenting a groundbreaking ...

Evanescent scattering microscopy: A sharper image for proteins

Proteins may be the most important and varied biomolecules within living systems. These strings of amino acids, assuming complex 3-dimensional forms, are essential for the growth and maintenance of tissue, the initiation ...
