Reports on Physics Research Findings from University of Antwerp Provide New Insights

May 13, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Investigators discuss new findings in Physics Research. According to news originating from Antwerp, Belgium, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Modern TEM enables the investigation of nanostructures at the atomic scale. However, TEM images are only two-dimensional (2D) projections of a three-dimensional (3D) object."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Antwerp, "Electron tomography can overcome this limitation. The technique is increasingly focused towards quantitative measurements and reaching atomic resolution in 3D has been the ultimate goal for many years. Therefore, one needs to optimize the acquisition of the data, the 3D reconstruction techniques as well as the quantification methods. Here, we will review a broad range of methodologies and examples."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Finally, we will provide an outlook and will describe future challenges in the field of electron tomography."
