In today’s blog, we asked Professor Pavel Jelinek from Nanosurf Lab and Palacky University Olomouc to talk about the focus of his recent Topical Review published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, which details the remarkable recent progress made in the… Read More ›
How can we investigate the small structures inside our cells using super-resolution microscopy?
Introducing our ‘Highlights of 2016’ collection
This week’s Image of the Week is a representative Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) image of an F-actin structure, taken from a recent Topical Review in JPhysD: “Convergence of lateral dynamic measurements in the plasma membrane of live cells from single… Read More ›
This week’s image of the week is taken from a recent paper in Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics from researchers at the University of Hong Kong, Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications and the University of Sheffield. The image… Read More ›
Can graphene be used as a nanoscopic ruler over a wide range of distances?
This week’s image of the week is a phase image simulation of a sphere with a positive charge of 100 e, including experimental phase distortions due to the microscope setup (projector lens and CCD camera). This article is part of… Read More ›
Novel physics-based experimental techniques and concepts from statistical mechanics may help understand why living cells use up precious energy to constantly ‘jiggle’ and ‘twitch’ their membranes.
This week’s Image of the Week – imaging biological microstructures at SACLA
We talk to Professor Robert Scholten about his research at the University of Melbourne and making lasers as the co-founder of MOGLabs
