August 2008 Archives

In a former life...

My last employer had some interesting projects come through the lab. A recent one is featured here (Hindenburg mystery touches Duluth) and here (History Detectives).

Oh, and yes, I have lived in both Duluths (Georgia and Minnesota).

Some Recent Microscopy News

Lemon Filled Odorless Socks? Noting really related to microscopy, but some cool SEM images and it is just an interesting solution to the age old problem of stinky socks.

Nano-coated bullets could help solve gun crimes. Hopefully this technology will help minimize some of the uncertainties associated with gunshot residue (GSR) analysis.

Super Resolution X-ray Microscope. This looks very interesting for anyone studying nanomaterials. It looks like it will have the same power as a HRTEM but sounds like it is a bit more user friendly. Will be interesting to see if it is commercialized and for how much $$$.
