  • The elements that make up biological molecules (C, H, N, O, P, S) are too light (low atomic number, Z) to be clearly visualized as individual atoms by transmission electron microscopy. (wikipedia.org)
  • To circumvent this problem, the DNA bases can be labeled with heavier atoms (higher Z). Each nucleotide is tagged with a characteristic heavy label, so that they can be distinguished in the transmission electron micrograph. (wikipedia.org)
  • CTEM
  • However, unlike CTEM, in STEM the electron beam is focused to a fine spot (with the typical spot size 0.05 - 0.2 nm) which is then scanned over the sample in a raster. (wikipedia.org)
  • LEEM
  • Low-energy electron microscopy, or LEEM, is an analytical surface science technique invented by Ernst Bauer in 1962, however, not fully developed (by Ernst Bauer and Wolfgang Telieps) until 1985. (wikipedia.org)
  • spatial resolution
  • The spatial resolution achievable can be in the sub-nanometer range and depends on the sample composition, structure and thickness, any window materials present, and the sensitivity of the sample to the electron dose required for imaging. (wikipedia.org)

  • produces
  • One of today's sharpest imaging tools, super-resolution microscopy, produces sparkling images of what until now has been the blurry interior of cells, detailing not only the cell's internal organs and skeleton, but also providing insights into cells' amazing flexibility. (news-medical.net)
  • detectors
  • A significant improvement in structural features was achieved in 2012 by the introduction of direct electron detectors and better computational algorithms. (wikipedia.org)

  • Graphene liquid cells facilitate electron microscopy studies of nano crystal formation. (wikipedia.org)

  • The ability to study liquid samples, particularly those involving water, with electron microscopy has been a wish ever since the early days of electron microscopy but technical difficulties prevented early attempts from achieving high resolution. (wikipedia.org)
  • Directly interpretable Z-contrast imaging makes STEM imaging with a high-angle detector an appealing technique in contrast to conventional high resolution electron microscopy, in which phase-contrast effects mean that atomic resolution images must be compared to simulations to aid interpretation.

  • Traditionally, samples would be imaged using two separate microscopy modalities, potentially at different facilities and using different sample preparation methods. (wikipedia.org)
  • Early experiments mostly used TEMs, because the image is captured in a single frame, whereas the Scanning Electron Microscope must move or scan across the sample while the stimuli is being applied, altering the sample. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, a large part of the structure information of the sample is contained in the phase of the electron wave. (wikipedia.org)
