With record resolution and sensitivity, tool images how life organizes in a cell membrane

...e is a highly specialized mass spectrometer, which analyzes the mass of small molecular ions formed when a focused ion beam runs across the surface of a sample. ''You take everything in the beam's focal area, which is about 100 nanometers in diameter and about 10 nanometers deep for our experiment, and you ob...

Three-dimensional, miniature endoscope opens new diagnostic possibilities

...he various colors decoded by a spectrometer, which analyzes the wavelengths of light. Another device called an interferometer, which calculates structural information based on the interaction between two waves of light, provides the data required to create three-dimensional images. To demonstrate the devi...

Leading reason for corneal transplants comes into focus

...process-of-elimination gene-hunting technique that analyzes inheritance patterns in families with relatively large numbers of affected individuals and trace genetic traits co-inherited or "linked" with the disorder. Researchers search for a common location for all the linked traits until they wind up with a s...

Weighty viruses

...he light goes to a measuring device that precisely analyzes the scattering signal. The scattered light is different from the initial light beam because the virus particle in the electric field of the ion trap begins to oscillate. This oscillation depends on the mass (and charge) of the virus. The team was ...
