Digital scanner

Ref.-Nr.: 0105-5505-BC

Bildgebung und Mikroskopie

Light microscopy enables fascinating insights into the microcosm of life. It is one of the key techniques in life science and provides access to a better understanding of biology across many orders of magnitude in time and space. The use of visible light allows for minimally invasive imaging - even of living cells - and direct observation with the human eye. However, the use of visible light limits the resolution of the image obtained to about half the wavelength of the used light. The limiting ...

Neue Materialien

Semiconductor nanowires are of vital importance for many applications, such as flexible electronics, photonics, sensors, and energy harvesting and storage devices. As standard fabrication procedure, vapor-liquid-solid (VLS) growth employs metal catalyst particles (such as gold) as seeds for growth of nanowires. The seeds are deposited on a solid substrate, melted by heating and then exposed to a gas atmosphere containing source materials of the semiconductor. When the metal droplets are supersaturated, ...

Flash 2 – Real-Time Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Ref.-Nr.: 0707-4198-BC

Bildgebung und Mikroskopie
Sensoren, Geräte und Komponenten

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is nowadays a leading mo¬dality for diagnostic imaging with about 100 million examinations per year worldwide. However, when invented by Paul Christian Lauterbur in 1973, MRI was too slow to allow for routine medical applications. A breakthrough was achieved in 1985 by the FLASH (Fast Low Angle Shot) technique developed by Jens Frahm and his team at the Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, Germany. With FLASH the measuring time for a cross-sectional ...

Method for the Calibration of a Microscope Setup

Ref.-Nr.: 1201-5661-BC

Bildgebung und Mikroskopie

Errors in super-resolution microscopy (SRM) can be identified with pairs of emitters that have fixed and precisely known relative positions. Such reference and calibration structures are exceedingly rare on the nanoscale. Here, Nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond (NVs) offer a formidable solution. These fluorescent defects are photo-stable and due to the excellent properties of their brilliant host, do not diffuse and are resilient against temperature or chemical environment changes.

Multichannel coil for UHF MRI

Ref.-Nr.: 0107-4677-BC

Bildgebung und Mikroskopie
Sensoren, Geräte und Komponenten

Exploiting the benefits offered by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at ultra-high fields (≥ 7 Tesla) requires optimized radiofrequency (RF) coils. MRI at UHF operates in a regime where the RF wavelength is comparable to the dimensions of the sample size, resulting in an inhomogeneous distribution of the transmit field (B1+) and in an impaired image quality. An array of independent transmit coils arranged in multiple rows provides the degrees of freedom to influence the ...

The state of an electron is completely defined by its momentum and spin. In processes like electron diffraction or photoemission electron ensembles are generated which have a characteristic 3D distribution of momentum and spin. To examine such events the three components of the momentum vector have to be measured. Up to now, the momentum distribution of an ensemble of charged particles was typically measured using energy-dispersive spectrometers based on sequential approaches (sequentially changing ...
