YouTube channel DW Documentary has published a 25-minute program detailing the 175 year history of Zeiss, a name now synonymous with photography despite its origin story beginning well before cameras would become commonplace.As detailed by DW Documentary, the Zeiss brand came to life in 1846 when Carl Zeiss, a German craftsman, started producing handcrafted microscopes designed for scientific app

Image credit: Micael WidellOne of macro photographer Micael Widell's subscribers, Nicholas Sherlock, sent Widell an awesome microscope lens and 3D-printed adapter. Sherlock, a macro photography enthusiast, created a microscope adapter for up to 4x macro photography on Sony E/FE, Canon EF/EF-S, Nikon F and M42 cameras.With the adapter, you can attach an AmScope 4x Plan Achromatic Objective Lens wi
Do you love macro photography but find that traditional macro lenses come up short? Or, do you just want to try close-up photography without breaking the bank? Nicholas Sherlock a 3D-printed adapter to use a 4x microscope objective on a Sony mirrorless camera or Canon EF-mount DSLR. Better yet, you can find the requisite microscope objective on Amazon for only $23. The 3D-printed adapter, whose 3
The modern microscope is an incredibly powerful tool when it comes to detecting disease, but typically the biological material being studied needs to be stained or dyed to reveal its secrets. This can alter the properties of the sample and lead to misdiagnosis, but scientists at Australia's La Trobe University have been developing a new microscope slide that sidesteps this issue, and they've used
There are millions of old and outdated iPhones collecting dust. Researchers in Germany have found a way to turn some of those old iPhones, specifically an iPhone 5 camera module, into affordable microscopes for young students. Using LEGO, an iPhone 5 camera, LED lighting and a modern smartphone, students can build their own microscope.Researchers Bart E. Vos, Emil Betz Blesa and Timo Betz from Ge
By taking advantage of recent advances in smartphone technology and the infinite possibilities of Lego, scientists in Germany have built a cheap and easy high-resolution microscope. Part educational tool and part toy, the fully-functional scientific instrument is not just for imaging microsopic objects, but can be used to teach kids about how these devices function and come together.Continue Read
Australian researchers have demonstrated a quantum microscope that can break through a fundamental barrier faced by regular microscopes and see tiny structures that are normally invisible. The device “squeezes” light to snap images with far greater clarity.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Microscopes, Quantum, Quantum Physics, Imaging, Cells, Light, New Atlas Audio
a group of researchers at NIST puts masks under a microscope in order to understand how different materials work in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. The post masks under the microscope — impressive images that show which ones work best appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Engineers at Brookhaven National Laboratory have designed a strange new X-ray microscope that takes advantage of the spooky world of quantum physics to “ghost image” biomolecules in high resolution but at a lower radiation dose.Continue ReadingCategory: Physics, ScienceTags: X-ray, Microscopes, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Quantum, Quantum Physics, Entanglement, Imaging, New Atlas Audio is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
