Axial and Arbitrary Plane Optical Microscope 2013-153

Despite the popularity of conventional optical microscopes such as confocal microscopes and selective-plane illumination microscopes (SPIMs), there are no commercially available optical microscopes that can quickly produce high contrast 2-D images or 3-D images of structures beneath the surface of...

Back Streaming Electron Dump for RF Ion Sources

Scientists at Berkeley Lab have invented a device that captures back streaming electrons in an RF-driven ion source, thereby significantly reducing the number of electrons that strike the dielectric backplate and cause it to crack or break. As a result, the invention prolongs the life of the ion...
