Over at the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), researchers have developed a special scanning electron microscope (SEM) capable of generating high-resolution 3D images of the study subject. 3D SEM is actually not new technology, however, the JST SEM is the first device of its kind that can show 3D images in real-time. The secret is a special electromagnetic lens that slants an electron beam aimed at a specimen, which results in instant left and right parallax images needed to create a 3D effect.
In a rare example where 3D has the potential to actually be something more than a headache-inducing gimmick, researchers at the Japan Science and Technology Agency have developed the world’s first scanning electron microscope capabl... Read Post
