Image of the Week: Super-resolution Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) image of F-actin structure
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 ›
Image of the Week: GaN/InGaN microdisks, or “micromushrooms”
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 ›
Spectacularly long range energy transfer to graphene
Can graphene be used as a nanoscopic ruler over a wide range of distances?
Image of the Week: Dynamical holographic Moirés in a TEM
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 ›
Shape fluctuations in biomembranes: the physics and the biology
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.
