Maybe I am overwhelmed by this because of my chemistry background, but in my opinion, this video documents what truly should be “wow”-level historical type of moment in material-related sciences. As the folks at the Lawrence Berkeley Nation Lab note, this is equivalent to the first…

Canadian center gets ‘most advanced’ microscope

By / October 23, 2008

They say the resolution for this electron microscope is like the Hubble telescope aimed at the atomic level: “We are the first university in the world with a microscope of such a high caliber,” says Gianluigi Botton, director of the Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy, professor of Materials Science and Engineering, and the project’s leader.…
