Top List: Top 5 Webinars to Improve Your Imaging Techniques

Learn about the latest imaging technologies and innovative applications

12 Jun 2016


 

Imaging technology is used across a variety of disciplines – from research in Life Sciences analyzing cells, to work in the materials industry testing new materials. Improving technology as well as advances in techniques combining different imaging technologies, such as light and electron microscopy, are helping researchers to complete these analyses in even greater detail.

Watch the webinars below to learn about different imaging technologies, how they allow researchers to study the world around us and discover the most effective techniques for a variety of applications.

 

1. Dr Peter O’Toole, University of York: Making Light Work of 3D Bioimaging 

 

Watch a presentation from Dr Peter O’Toole, where he discusses the benefits of microscopy for biologists. Hear about the technique has been applied to a range of applications such as the analysis of mitotic cells and other samples. Watch the presentation >>

 

2. Increase Laser Scanning Microscopy Performance with ZEISS Airyscan

Joseph Huff, ZEISS Microscopy, discusses the use of Airyscan detection module for laser scanning confocal microscopy to increase resolution and signal-to-noise ratio compared to traditional confocal imaging, and how the different modes allow analysis of more samples. Watch the webinar >>

 

3. In-Situ-Squared: Combined Electrical and Mechanical Testing of Flexible Electronic Materials with Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy

 

Dr. Megan J. Cordill and Jakob Mallmann, OLYMPUS EUROPA, discuss basics of fragmentation testing in-situ and in-situ-squared methods, and in-situ-squared fatigue testing of flexible electronic materials using confocal laser scanning microscopy. Hear how these techniques can be used to investigate the electrical and mechanical behavior of thin films and structures used in flexible electronic devices. The combination of mechanical straining, while acquiring electrical resistance and 3D images of the surfaces with confocal laser scanning microscopy, provides valuable data for reliability testing of flexible electronics.
