How to clean a Transmission Electron Microscope without disassembling it

A new technique developed by researchers in Japan is also effective for analysis techniques requiring long time beam irradiation such as electron tomography, nanobeam electron diffraction, EELS (electron energy-loss spectroscopy), EDX (energy dispersive X-ray diffraction) and STEM (scanning transmission electron microscope), and thus it will contribute to advanced analysis techniques.

The brightest, sharpest, fastest X-ray holograms yet

The pinhole camera, a technique known since ancient times, has inspired a futuristic technology for lensless, three-dimensional imaging. Working at both the Advanced Light Source at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and at FLASH, the free-electron laser in Hamburg, Germany, an international group of scientists has produced two of the brightest, sharpest x-ray holograms of microscopic objects ever made, thousands of times more efficiently than previous x-ray-holographic methods.
