- Veeco Instruments, Leica Microsystems Ally for Research
Veeco Instruments Inc. of Woodbury, N.Y., a supplier of nanoscience instrumentation, and Leica Microsystems GmbH of Wetzlar, Germany, a manufacturer of optical microscopy imaging systems, have formed a collaboration to improve research techniques in biology and nanomedicine. Initially, they will focus on integrating Veeco’s BioScope II atomic force microscope with Leica’s DMI series inverted microscopes, an advance that will yield high-resolution images for cell biology and provide scientists with a fully automated and coded instrument. The BioScope II enables in situ techniques for measuring biological samples in 3-D.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
