Atomically Flat Crystal Surfaces IB-2549

Devices once fabricated at micron-level precision are now fabricated at nano-level precision. With the trend continuing towards miniaturization, material imperfections, even at the atomic scale, will affect performance of semiconductors and electronic devices such as hard drive readers. Farid El...

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...

Basal Media for Culturing Epithelial Cells 2015-009

Researchers at Berkeley Lab have developed a low cost technology for growing primary human epithelial cells (HEC) for as much as 60 population doublings, for longer than a month, all while maintaining low stress conditions that preserve lineage heterogeneity and normal phenotypes. The basal media...
