Papers in Nature Journals are like Buses…
21 September 2015

You wait for ages and then two come along at once - in fact, not just in the same month but on the same day! The paper, in Nature Materials, represents the first fruits of Wolfgang Theis’s collaboration with the National Center for Electron Microscopy at Berkeley, which Wolfgang has been visiting for several years now. The work, led by John Miao at UCLA, demonstrates the resolution in 3D and with atomic resolution of the structure of more than three thousands atoms at the end of a tungsten needle (free not embedded), via electron tomography with the aberration-corrected STEM in annular dark-field mode. Wolfgang said “I am delighted that the first paper from this exciting collaboration has now been published”. A link to the UCLA Press Release is here.
