21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The sixth annual BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award in the Basic Sciences category goes to German physicists Maximilian Haider , Harald Rose and Knut Urban for "greatly enhancing the resolving power of electron microscopy by developing aberration-corrected electron optics
, a breakthrough enabling subatomic precision.
Materials scientists and engineers explore low-voltage versions of electron microscopy, which has only recently become available due to rapid developments in electron optics
design and imaging processing.
This reprint of the original 2003 edition covers: elementary principles of phase-contrast microscopy, electron optics
, wave optics, coherence and Fourier optics, STEM and Z-contrast, electron sources and detectors, measurement of electron-optical parameters, instabilities and the microscope environment, experimental methods, and associated techniques.
FEI and Philips Electron Optics
combined operations in 1997, giving Philips a 55% share in the company (see IBO 2/28/97).
A Japan Electron Optics
Laboratory HX-100 mass spectrometer (JEOL, Tokyo, Japan) in electron impact mode was used for structure analysis of the metabolites.
The new microscope replaces two older units and provides a high-intensity field emission electron source and state-of-the-art electron optics
Cited for designing, between 1931 and 1933, the first electron microscope and for doing "fundamental work in electron optics
,' West German scientist Ernst Ruska of the Fritz-Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in West Berlin will receive half of the $290,000 prize.
Equipped with a 50kV electron optics
, an address grid of 1nm and an exposure platform with a stage travel range of 210mm x 210mm the system enables lithography below 50nm on various substrates from pieces up to 200mm wafers and 7inch masks.
In positions prior to Marel he served as Managing Director/President of Holmatro Rescue Equipment, Managing Director of Bosch Tevopharm Packaging Machines and several earlier positions with Robert Bosch Packaging Machines and Philips Electron Optics
Beginning with an overview of transmission electron microscopy principles, topics discussed include electron optics
, the development of STEM, aberration diagnosis and correction, simulations of STEM imaging, advanced STEM, electron energy loss spectrometry, applications of aberration corrected scanning and aberration-corrected imaging with CTEM.
These techniques involve the use of additional detectors that gather different kinds of information from the electron optics
present in the microscope.
Individual paper topics include accuracy analysis of a 2D Poisson-Vlasov PIC solver and estimates of the collision effects in space charge dynamics, porting COSY source files, new numerical methods for solving time-dependent Maxwell equations, the status of the Los Alamos Accelerator Group Code, parallel simulation algorithms for the three-dimensional strong-strong beam-beam interaction, the map methods for electron optics
, high-order beam features and fitting quadruple-scan data to particle code models, optimization of RFQ structures, and space change studies and comparisons with simulations using the FNAL Booster.
