Cold electrons provide sharper focus
from ABC Science
Australian scientists have developed a new way of imaging atoms, which could lead to new types of drugs in medicine and a better understanding of materials for engineering. Called a cold electron source, it will be capable of improving the quality and speed of nano-imaging. The research led by Associate Professor Robert Scholten from the University of Melbourne's School of Physics is designed to overcome problems conventional synchrotron X-rays and electron microscopes have in taking intricate images.
