3D Measuring Microscope Combines Confocal and Interferometry Techniques

The Dual-Core 3D Measuring Microscope Leica DCM 3D offers a unique combination of confocal and interferometry in a single sensor head. The core technology is based on a fast reaction microdisplay placed in the position of the field diaphragm. Bright field, interferometric and confocal images can be generated by the control of the microdisplay. The non-moving part concept, …

High Data Output and Automated 3D Correlative Light–Electron Microscopy Method

Correlative light/electron microscopy (CLEM) allows the simultaneous observation of a given subcellular structure by fluorescence light microscopy (FLM) and electron microscopy. The use of this approach is becoming increasingly frequent in cell biology. In this study, we report on a new high data output CLEM method based on the use of cryosections. We successfully applied …

Research for the Optimal Structure

The experiments showed that, given constant cooling conditions, the proportion of the globulitic structure volume depends directly on the type and intensity of the electromagnetically driven flow and can be controlled by a defined setting of the magnetic field parameters. For instance, a distinct grain refinement was detected in the microstructure after electromagnetic stirring (Figures …
