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 ...

'Volumetric' imaging method reveals chemical content

A "chemical imaging" system that uses a special type of laser beam to penetrate deep into tissue might lead to technologies that eliminate the need to draw blood for analyses including drug testing and early detection of ...

Super-resolution microscopy in both space and time

Super-resolution microscopy is a technique that can "see" beyond the diffraction of light, providing unprecedented views of cells and their interior structures and organelles. The technique has garnered increasing interest ...

Super-resolution microscopy: Getting even closer to the limit

Ralf Jungmann is interested in processes that take place within unbelievably tiny spatial dimensions. Jungmann holds a professorship in experimental physics at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich, and heads a ...

Researchers push the boundaries of optical microscopy

The field of optical microscopy research has developed rapidly in recent years. Thanks to the invention of a technique called super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, it has recently become possible to view even the smaller ...
