Electron Microscopy Proves its Worth in Nanoscale Applications
Recent technology improvements have paced electron microscopy as the forerunner when it comes to imaging nanometer-scale objects.
Field emission scanning electron microscopes (FESEM) have been around for years and have applications across many fields. These high-resolution microscopes can be used in biology, chemistry and physics to study materials from cell organelles to microchip coatings. Now, recent improvements in electron optics make FESEM appropriate for nanoscale applications, including new product research and development. Recently, the technique has aided the development of two such products: an antimicrobial wound dressing and anti-hypersensitivity toothpaste.
