Open Source Optical Toolbox Provides Microscopes for All

The open-source 3D-printed cube can host self-designed inserts, electrical and optical components. The resulting modules can be combined to form complex optical instruments. This allows the smartphone to be transformed into a powerful microscope in no time at all -- and at almost any place on earth -- in order to pose and answer completely new questions to science.

Super Slow Motion Crystal Structures

News

Laser beams are used to change material properties precisely. However, the underlying processes generally happen unimaginably fast and at such a small scale that they have so far eluded direct observation. Researchers have now managed to film, for the first time, the laser transformation of a crystal structure with nanometre resolution and in slow motion in an electron microscope.
