Rigaku Announces Synchrotron Optics Refurbishment Program and New Optics and Coatings for Synchrotron Applications

Rigaku Innovative Technologies (RIT) announces that it cleans and recoats old synchrotron optics to either retask the optics for new applications or to refurbish and repair the coatings to enhance performance. This proprietary

process restores the optics’ performance with less lead time and at a far lower cost than purchasing new optics. T e company also off ers new optics and coatings for synchrotron applications, delivering high refl ectivity and precision.

Bruker Bio AFM Enables Advanced DNA Research at University of Leeds

Bruker’s Nano Surfaces Division reports on the groundbreaking use of a Dimension FastScan Bio

of Leeds to investigate biological and biomolecular systems. Neil Thomson’s group has used the system’s high-speed scanning, exceptional force control, and high-resolution performance to characterize DNA systems, such as DNA-protein interactions and DNA origami structures. Furthermore, Simon Connell’s team has characterized the temperature-dependent dynamic behavior of critical biomimetic lipid membranes.

Reducing Photobleaching Effects in STED Microscopy

Onefi ve announced further microscopy developments obtained with the use of its Katana HP laser as STED laser. This Katana HP laser was developed as a depletion laser for STED super-resolution fluores- cence microscopy. STED microscopy can in principle

achieve unlimited resolution, but in reality it is limited by eff ects like photobleaching, which damages the samples. Scientists have found a solution by combining time-gated detection techniques with the use of the Katana HP laser as an STED laser.
