Scientists visualize potential brain cancer treatments in real time with nanotechnology

Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute scientists have developed new imaging techniques to watch dangerous brain tumor cells respond to treatment in real time.

Published in Nano Letters, the study was led by Zhi Sheng and Deborah Kelly, both assistant professors… Read more →

New fluorescent probes detect problems related to lysosomes

Lysosomes are the garbage disposals of animal cells. As the resources are limited in cells, organic materials are broken down and recycled a lot — and that’s what lysosomes do. Detecting problems with lysosomes is the focus of a new… Read more →

Engineers devise method for producing high-res, 3D images of nanoscale objects

To design the next generation of optical devices, ranging from efficient solar panels to LEDs to optical transistors, engineers will need a 3-dimensional image depicting how light interacts with these objects on the nanoscale. Unfortunately, the physics of light has… Read more →


Hyperspectral imager opens options for consumer, medical and industrial uses

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) has long been confined to laboratory use and expensive applications. This is changing now, thanks to the advent of fast, compact, user-friendly and low-cost hyperspectral cameras based on a revolutionary hyperspectral sensor monolithically integrated on a CMOS… Read more →

Researchers building “Google Maps” of human anatomy

Researchers at The University of New South Wales in Australia, with the help of folks at Cleveland Clinic, Brown and Stanford Universities, and Zeiss, harnessed Google’s own algorithms to create essentially a “Google Maps” for the human anatomy. Just as with satellite… Read more →

Watching the blood flow

Optical microangiography (OMAG), a technique based on optical coherence tomography, can be used to visualize the microvasculature network under inflamed skin condition. It opens up new vistas for clinical trials of treatment and diagnosis of inflammatory skin disorders.
