Non-invasive Nano-scale Imaging


Scientific Achievement

Using the Molecular Foundry’s imaging capabilities, users have developed a technique, called ‘CLAIRE’, that allows the resolution of electron microscopy to be used for non-invasive nanoscale imaging of soft matter.

Significance and Impact

CLAIRE could lead to the understanding of key biological processes and help accelerate the development of new technologies such as high-efficiency photovoltaic cells.
