World’s ultra-high resolution microscope’s working is in progress

A pesar de que nuestra maxima resolución para observar el Nano-Cosmos es increible para nuestra investigación sobre nano-ciencias, ahora the Julich Aachen Research Alliance’s (JSRA) campus of Forschungszentrum Julich trabaja sobre un microscopio electrónico para restaurar la imagen de superficies con unos picómetros de tamaño con un solo electrón, en definitiva es reflejo de una gran ayuda para la nanotecnología al igual de que es reflejo de una gran inversion. La pregunta ahora es ¿que tan posible es manipular un solo electrón para la microscopía electrónica?

Researchers are working on a unique electron microscope that will have a resolution of 50 billionth of a millimeter. The work has began at the Julich Aachen Research Alliance’s (JSRA) campus of Forschungszentrum Julich. The new microscope will be the best so far and will enhance the position of both Julich and Aachen in the worldwide ultra-high resolution microscopy.

The project is jointly been funded by RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Julich and the name for new ultra-high resolution microscope project will be PICO. The new microscope will help various scientists engaged in basic research in the area of material science and industry researchers for investigating atomic and sub atomic structures and the new development will benefit especially the electronics and information technology.

For the new building and equipments, a total of 15 million euros will be provided jointly by the German Research Foundation, Federal Government and NRW federal state. The project is again an example of cooperation in the frontier technology between University and non-university research.

PICO or Advanced Picometer Resolution Project, will have the best resolution of 50 picometer and using the latest computers, the microscope will be able to measure atomic distances that were not measured previously with accuracy. In addition, the spectroscopic analysis using this microscope will help in investigating the chemical bonding.
