Imaging atoms on 2D atomic crystals in liquids

More than 35 years after IBM Nobel laureates Gerd Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer invented the scanning tunneling microscope (STM), IBM scientists in Zurich have achieved another breakthrough in the field of atom-by-atom imaging and metrology. But this time it’s in liquids. In collaboration with scientists from the University of Limerick, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, […]

Microfluidic probe for personalized healthcare

The sequencing of the entire human genome back in the early 2000s is considered one of the most important scientific breakthrough enabling data-driven medicine. It flooded researchers in biology with a tremendous amount of Big Data that needed to be processed and tested. It was around then that DNA microarrays, small glass chips where thousands […]
