  Exciting Nanofabrication Capabilities Are Now Available on Carl Zeiss Helium Ion Microscope Carl Zeiss has introduced a new Gas Injection System for the ORIONÂź Plus Helium Ion Microscope. The combination of a sub-nanometer (less than 0.35nm) probe of inert gas ions with a small interaction volume at the sample surface enables highly precise induction chemistries.

 

  Carl Zeiss Nano Image Contest Off to a Successful Start More than 70 users of ZEISS electron and ion microscopes from all over the world have already submitted their nano masterpieces to the first ever Carl Zeiss Nano Image Contest. The current voting record of the overall competition is held by Peter Nirmalraj from Trinity College Dublin

 

  Novel Technique for Characterization of Monolayer Segregation Scientists at the University of Nantes (France) have recently developed a novel technique to detect and quantify grain boundary segregations using wavelength dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (WDS). The instrument basis for the development of the new technique is the MERLINÂź Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope from Carl Zeiss, equipped with an Oxford WDS spectrometer. The experiment was performed at the Laboratoire GĂ©nie des MatĂ©riaux et ProcĂ©dĂ©s AssociĂ©s PolytechÂŽ Nantes (LGMPA).

  11th Day of Microscopy at Carl Zeiss Carl Zeiss will be holding the eleventh “Day of Microscopy”, this time under the motto “Travel to New Dimensions”. Launched in November 2009 in a campaign with the same name, the ELYRA and LSM 780 microscope systems and the VivaTome and DirectFRAP modules will be presented to a large German audience at the Jena Volksbad for the first time.

 

  High Attendance at Workshop on Aberration Corrected Electron Microscopy A workshop on aberration corrected electron microscopy was sponsored recently by Carl Zeiss at Harvard University. The workshop attendance was unexpectedly high. Organizers had to move the roughly 100 attendees to a much larger lecture hall than originally planned

 

  New Multidiscussion System - Identical images for up to twenty-one observers Carl Zeiss has launched a new multidiscussion system for Axio Scope and Axio Imager light microscopes. This enables up to 21 persons to view the same object microscopically at the same time.

 

  Polarization Microscopy with High Flexibility The exceptionally flexible Axio Scope.A1 microscope system from Carl Zeiss is now being offered in a version for polarization microscopy. With minimum effort, six different versions of the microscope can be specially and economically configured for polarization techniques.

 

  Patents Issued for Licensed PAL-M Super-resolution Technology The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued three patents (US 7,626,694, US 7,828,695 and US 7,626,703) to Dr. Eric Betzig and Dr. Harald Hess for their invention relating to super-resolution Photo-Activated-Localization Microscopy (PAL-M). PAL-Microscopy is now protected by these patents.

 

  Special Microscope for Biological Research Installed Carl Zeiss completed the installation and acceptance testing of a transmission electron microscope featuring a new type of optics for the high-resolution imaging of biological specimens at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysics in Frankfurt.
