Real Time Imaging using Photons and Electrons
Microscopic imaging is critical for discovery and innovation in science and technology, accelerating advances in materials, bio, nano and energy sciences, as well as nanoelectronics, data storage and medicine. Fortunately, all areas of imaging, from electron to visible to X-ray, are undergoing revolutionary advances. Opaque, scattering and disordered samples common in chemistry, materials, and biology present a formidable challenge using any imaging modality. Notable demonstrations aside, current X-ray, electron, and optical microscopies are simply too slow to routinely image functioning systems. This severely limits progress in science and technology. The NSF STC on Real-Time Functional Imaging (STROBE) is addressing this challenge by integrating different imaging modalities with underpinning technologies – advanced algorithms, fast detectors, big data manipulation and hybrid/adaptive imaging.
