    Writing and Deleting Magnets With Lasers

    Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) in Germany, together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia in Charlottesville (US), have found a way to write and delete magnets in an...

    Facial Recognition Technology That Works in the Dark

    Army researchers have developed an artificial intelligence and machine learning technique that produces a visible face image from a thermal image of a person's face captured in low-light or nighttime conditions. This development could lead to...
  • A comparison of blood vessels imaged with short-wave fluorescence imaging right and near-infrared fluorescence imaging left Both images rely on a fluorescent dye called ICG, but the vessels can be seen more clearly with short-wave fluorescence imaging

    Fluorescent Dye Could Enable Sharper Bio Imaging

    Fluorescence imaging is widely used for visualizing biological tissues, such as the back of the eye, where signs of macular degeneration can be detected. It is also commonly used to image blood vessels during reconstructive surgery, allowing...

    Ultrathin Endoscope Captures Neurons Firing Deep in the Brain

    Researchers have developed an endoscope as thin as a human hair that can image the activity of neurons in the brains of living mice. Because it is so thin, the endoscope can reach deep into the brain, giving researchers access to areas that cannot...
