The Sharpest Images

JILA News – Laser Physics Nanoscience 2017

The world’s most powerful CDI (Coherent Diffractive Imaging) microscope at a wavelength of 13 nm­­. Remarkably, it contains no lenses. Rather, a nanoscale object is illuminated with coherent high-harmonic beams of extreme ultraviolet light. The scattered light is collected and used with a powerful algorithm to create an image of the object with sub-wavelength spatial resolution.
