Australian sensor 'looks at atoms'
Bionic body parts and new pharmaceuticals may be easier to develop with the launch of a new Australian device that can see what's happening at the atomic level.
The Inphaze impedance spectrometer, which is the size of a shoebox, uses electricity to detect the structure of samples at the nanometer scale, and could replace larger measuring devices which cost hundreds of millions of dollars.
Speaking at the launch of Inphaze, University of Sydney Biophysics and Bioengineering director, Professor Hans Coster, said the spectrometer was unique because it provided a level of resolution not previously obtained by impedance spectrometers.
"With this instrument we can picture things with electrical currents that we cannot see otherwise. We have been able to resolve structures down to atomic dimensions, down to seeing the addition of a single carbon atom," he said.
