New Easy-To-Use Super Microscope

7 06 2008

German researchers have developed a microscope that depicts cells in never-before-seen detail.

Not only does the microscope have a 100 nanometer resolution, up from the 200 to 300 nanometer focus of conventional microscopes: by mixing several beams of light to create a lighting pattern that varies both horizontally and vertically, it shows cells in three dimensions.

Better yet, it doesn’t require special components and is no harder to use than a standard microscope.
