Study Data from University of Alberta Update Knowledge of Ultramicroscopy (Nano-dot markers for electron tomography formed by electron beam-induced deposition: Nanoparticle agglomerates application)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Research findings on Ultramicroscopy are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Edmonton, Canada, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A method allowing fabrication of nano-dot markers for electron tomography was developed using an electron beam-induced deposition in an ordinary dual beam instrument (FIB and SEM) or an SEM."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of Alberta, "The electron beam deposited nano-dot markers are suitable for automatic alignment of tomographic series. The accuracy of the alignment was evaluated and the method was demonstrated on agglomerated nanoparticle samples using a rod-shaped sample with no missing wedge effect."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Simulations were used to assess the effect of marker size on alignment accuracy."
