The First Image Ever of a Hydrogen Atoms Orbital Structure What you’re looking at is the first direct observation of an atom’s electron orbital — an atoms actual wave function! To capture the image, researchers utilized a new quantum microscope — an incredible new device that literally allows scientists to gaze into the quantum realm.
For this multidisciplinary installation project infusing visual art with natural science, San Francisco-based artist Klari Reis used petri dishes and reflective epoxy polymer to capture electron microscopic images of the natural (and unnatural) cellular reactions that take place in nature.
The Super-Kamiokande detector in Japan, an underground tank that holds 50 million liters of water, captures neutrinos that emanate from a particle accelerator nearly 300 kilometers away. When a neutrino hits the detector, it can produce charged particles, whose high speed through the water emits a flash of light, triggering phototubes mounted in the walls of the Super-K tank. The experiment investigates muon neutrinos transforming into electron neutrinos.
Berlin: Scientists say they’ve reached a milestone on the way to switching on the world’s biggest X-ray laser, designed to capture images of structures and processes at the atomic level. The DESY research center near Hamburg, Germany, said Wednesday it successfully fired electrons...
