Maurizio Galimberti stands out from the international photographic scene by its search for a continuous experimentation, fruit of its curiosity for all that is in movement which it alternates with deep moments of reflection where the action – suspended – becomes metaphysical. The ready-made and the mosaic are the recurring themes of a distinctive and …

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 28, 2021 – A custom-built near-field infrared (IR) nanoscope and spectroscope by an MIT research team can quickly and economically probe the characteristics of various materials at the nanoscale. Also known as a scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscope, or s-SNOM, the tool can identify internal properties of a material, such as how …

It’s not exactly x-ray vision, but it’s close. In research published in the journal Optical, University of California, Irvine researchers describe a new type of camera technology that, when pointed at an object, can quickly retrieve 3D images, displaying its chemical content down to the micrometer scale. The new technology promises to help companies inspect …

Will Ferrell very rarely ventures outside of his tried and trusted wheelhouse to act like a petulant man-child, but you can’t deny that it has earned him serious success over the past two decades. That being said, the actor and producer turned 54 yesterday, so he can’t go on and on indefinitely, but he will …

An international team of scientists developed an experimental camera system capable of simultaneously capturing five dimensions of information from a single snapshot. The concept works by combining two types of sensors to gather a multitude of information at the same time. Researchers say that to better observe and understand non-repeatable or irreversible dynamic scenes, it …

There has been growing interest in facial capture and animation in recent years. Visual effects companies and video game companies want to create and deliver new experiences to their audiences, whether they are a hyperrealistic human character or a fantastic creature created by visual effects and driven by a human interpreter. With rapidly growing technology …

A non-invasive brain imaging technique developed by researchers at ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich operates in the near infrared (NIR) spectrum to enable deep tissue fluorescence microscopy at superresolution to four times the limit depth imposed by the diffusion of light. According to the researchers, the technique, called diffuse optical localization imaging (DOLI), …

Credit: CC0 Public domain To create high-resolution 3D images of tissues such as the brain, researchers often use two-photon microscopy, which involves directing a high-intensity laser at the sample to induce fluorescence excitation. However, scanning deep into the brain can be difficult because the light scatters tissue as it sinks, blurring the images. Two-photon imaging …
