New microcopy advances biological imaging to nanoscale

Abstract:
Sergei Kalinin, a Eugene P. Wigner Fellow at DOE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and Alexei Gruverman, a research professor at North Carolina State University, have obtained images of the structure of a Vanessa virginiensis (American Lady) butterfly's wing at approximately 10 nanometer resolution.

“Scanning probe microscopy provides unlimited opportunities for understanding material structure, properties, and functionality at all length scales,” says Kalinin . “This will pave the way to better and cheaper materials for biological and medical applications.”
