A spider web thread is very thin, yet it can support a spider. Given that the human eye visual acuity is finite, are there materials, natural or man-made, sufficiently thin that a string made from ...
The limit of microscopes is 200nm, but apparently STED improves this according to this coverage of the Kavil prizes 2014 : http://www.photonics.com/Article.aspx?AID=56255 What is the current limit ...
I suppose the answer depends on resolution and imaging area, but can you provide some ball park measures of imaging times with an SEM?
We are mostly all familiar with a microscope, and know that it helps to see MICRO components, like stuff that is photolithographically etched on silicon semiconductor die. (The latter can also be ...
I’ve a got a question; and I am hopeful that you can provide any information or direct me to a better resource. I'm not a physicist; so please correct me if I'm wrong. Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) ...
(this question is a crosspost from theoretical physics.) I am using atomic force microscopy (AFM) for characterizing pores of the size of nanometers for application in gas flow. For this, knowing ...
