SmartAlign for DigitalMicrograph


HREM Research Inc. introduced SmartAlign for DigitalMicrograph. SmartAlign corrects slow instability of probe scanning system (scan distortion) from fast-acquisition multi-frame images using rigid and non-rigid image alignment. T us, SmartAlign restores resolution before degradation and improves image quality. In a scanning transmission electron microscope or scanning tunneling microscope, low-frequency instabilities, such as stage driſt and scan distortion, change from image to image and degrade resolution even when images are added aſt er rigid alignment.

13 th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium


WITec annually invites researchers and specialists from widely ranging fields to an international conference to share ideas and hear about the latest developments in Raman microscopy. This year 78 scientists converged to discuss topics as diverse as life science, pharmaceutics, and materials research. With confocal Raman imaging the molecules of a sample can be chemically identifi ed and their distribution can be imaged three- dimensionally. T ese benefi ts have recently gained recognition in biological, medical, and pharmaceutical research.
