A Breakthrough in Electron Microscopy
Jülich, 21. September 2014 – Imagine that you want to find out from a single picture taken of the front of a house, what the building looks like from behind, whether it has any extensions or if the brickwork is damaged, and how many rooms are in the basement. Sounds impossible? Not in the nanoworld. Scientists from Jülich and Xi’an have developed a new method with which crystal structures can be reconstructed with atomic precision in all three dimensions.

How the "PICO" microscope works
A unique transmission electron microscope with a resolution of 50 picometres has been available for use by researchers at the ER-C since February 2012.  You can see just how the “PICO” (Advanced Picometre Resolution Project) works in this video. More
