Students craft high-tech microscope 'from scratch'

Students craft high-tech microscope 'from scratch'

It took two years and a lot of trial and error but two researchers at The University of New Mexico Center for High Tech Materials (CHTM) have built "from scratch" a Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) microscope, capable of imaging objects less than 100 nanometers in size. Among the microscope’s applications is the ability to record high resolution images of nano-sized biological specimens such as flu or HIV viruses, which a conventional optical microscope can’t do.
