Team develops quality control for single cell imaging

One size doesn't necessarily fit all when it comes to testing the effects, including cancer and other diseases, of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC) or toxins, which target many factors, including the estrogen receptor ...

A colossal flare erupted from the far side of the sun

Earlier this week, the sun erupted with a huge explosion, blasting solar particles millions of kilometers into space. The team for the ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter spacecraft says the blast is the largest solar prominence eruption ...

Non-line-of-sight imaging with picosecond temporal resolution

Usually, the traditional optical imaging strategies can only image the target objects within the field of camera. However, through the non-line-of-sight (NLOS) which can record the time-of-flight information about single-photon, ...

Scientists achieve single-photon imaging over 200 kilometers

A research team led by Professor Pan Jianwei and Professor Xu Feihu from University of Science and Technology of China achieved single-photon 3D imaging over 200 km using high-efficiency optical devices and a new noise-suppression ...

Flexible 'slinkies' form in DNA of archaea

New cryo-electron microscopy images suggest archaeal microbes pack their chromatin into tight coils that can spring open, forming unexpected contortions.

Imaging a molecular switch

Scanning probe microscopes like the scanning tunneling microscope and the atomic force microscope give researchers valuable information about individual molecules. One of the most interesting areas of research is molecular ...
