Wide-field microscope imaging with large FOV and high resolution is achieved via ultracompact metalens array — ScienceDaily

The pursuit of ever-higher imaging resolution in microscopy is coupled with growing demands for compact portability and high throughput. While imaging performance has improved, conventional microscopes still suffer from the bulky, heavy elements and architectures associated with refractive optics. Metalenses offer a solution: they’re ultrathin, ultralight, and flat, and benefit from lots of recent research […]

Blueprints for a cheaper single-molecule microscope — ScienceDaily

A team of scientists and students from the University of Sheffield has designed and built a specialist microscope, and shared the build instructions to help make this equipment available to many labs across the world. The microscope, called the smfBox, is capable of single-molecule measurements allowing scientists to look at one molecule at a time […]
