Big Data At The Atomic Scale: New Detector Reaches New Frontier In Speed
Advances in electron microscopy – using electrons as imaging tools to see things well beyond the reach of conventional microscopes that use light – have opened up a new window into the nanoscale world and brought a wide range of samples into focus as never before.
Electron microscopy experiments can only use a fraction of the possible information generated as the microscope's electron beam interacts with samples. Now, a team at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has designed a new kind of electron detector that captures all of the information in these interactions.
