Microscopy Technique Enhances 3D Imaging Capability
Microscopy Technique Enhances 3D Imaging Capability
A team at Boston University devised a technique to collect information from many focal planes at once, aided by a special algorithm for removing out-of-focus blur that may clear these hurdles in modern research. The work could assist in a number of biomedical applications and in the study of dynamic systems.

Spectroscopy Takes Root in Agricultural Analysis
Spectroscopy Takes Root in Agricultural Analysis
Before the advent of compact, portable optical sensing instruments such as miniature spectrometers, agriculture researchers and farmers with access to technology were limited to extracting their plant samples from the field, taking them to a lab, and then waiting days or weeks to get results. This delay is too long for an industry in which growing seasons are finite and even minor improvements in yield can add immediate value to the harvest.

Synthetic Aperture Phase Microscopy Enables Subcellular Imaging
Synthetic Aperture Phase Microscopy Enables Subcellular Imaging
Researchers at The Chinese University of Hong Kong have developed a phase-reliant method of synthetic aperture microscopy. The method, introduced as “high spatial and temporal resolution synthetic aperture phase microscopy,” or “HISTR-SAPM,” features a setup of digital micromirror devices — electronic components commonly used in digital projectors and that contain a matrix of micromirrors — and overcomes previously existing limitations to SAM tied to spatial resolution and frame rate.
