Physics: Not everything is where it seems to be

Scientists at TU Wien, the University of Innsbruck and the ÖAW have for the first time demonstrated a wave effect that can lead to measurement errors in the optical position estimation of objects. The work now published ...

Microscopy technique could enable more informative biopsies

MIT and Harvard Medical School researchers have devised a way to image biopsy samples with much higher resolution—an advance that could help doctors develop more accurate and inexpensive diagnostic tests.

Chip-based nanoscopy: Microscopy in HD quality

Physicists at Bielefeld University and the Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø have developed a photonic chip that makes it possible to carry out super-resolution light microscopy, also called 'nanoscopy,' with conventional ...

Seeing viruses by both light and electron microscopy

Advances in both light and electron microscopy are improving scientists' ability to visualize viruses such as HIV, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), measles, influenza, and Zika in their native states. Researchers from Emory ...

'Latest spoke in the wheel' drives brain-mapping advances
