Large-area hyperspectral cathodoluminescence for imaging spatially extended specimen

March 25, 2019

Cathodoluminescence imaging is a powerful tool for acquiring data from geological samples. Our new technical note describes in detail an acquisition mode called large-area hyperspectral cathodoluminescence imaging. Large-area(LA) spectral acquisition mode can be specifically used for imaging spatially extended specimen such as zircons and other minerals.

New paper establishes cathodoluminescence as an optical characterization technique with nanoscale spatial resolution

March 20, 2019

A new study, co-written by scientists from AMOLF and Delmic and published in ACS Photonics, investigates the factors that determine the spatial resolution of coherent cathodoluminescence as a deep-subwavelength imaging technique. This is done by examining nanoscale excitation of Ag nanocubes with coherent cathodoluminescence imaging.

Webinar: giant viruses under (correlative light and electron) microscope

March 05, 2019

If you are working in the field of biology, you probably know the struggle of combining electron microscopy imaging with light microscopy. Correlative light and electron microscopy(CLEM) is a powerful technique which makes it possible to combine the labelling power of fluorescence imaging with high resolution structural information acquired with electron imaging. This technique has been used for studying biological samples in the fields of marine microbiology, cancer research, neuroscience and, most recently, virology.
