According to the NNIU MEPhI press service, russian scientists have created the unique «all-seeing» microscope. Using this microscope one can analyze the surface and physical parameters, determine optical properties, produce an accurate 3D visualization of the internal structure of the object based on X-ray images. In the device all the advantages of various modern approaches to nanoscale measurements: scanning probe microscopy, optical microspectroscopy, and nanotomography are combined.
Scientists from the Nano-Bioengineering Laboratory of the Engineering Physics Institute of Biomedicine NNIU MEPhI worked in collaboration with scientists from the Federal State Budgetary Institution “Academician V.I.Shumakov Federal Research Center of Transplantology and Artificial Organs”, the Shemyakin-Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry, RAS (IBCh RAS), the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) and from the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne (France).
A microscope that «sees» an object both from the outside and the inside may be used in complex analysis of biological tissue samples. Besides, the microscope will be useful in solving security problems associated with the nanoparticles penetration into various organs and tissues of a living organism.
The results of the study are published in Ultramicroscopy.
