FEI names winner of its award that honors neuroscience excellence

FEI Munich awarded its 2015 FEI Technology Award to Benjamin Judkewitz for his pioneering optical microscopy work in neuroscience.

Full-body scanner could ease early detection of skin cancer

A team of researchers has developed a full-body scanner device that could bring early detection of skin cancer a major step forward.

Blue light-activated gene therapy could treat erectile dysfunction

A potential clinical treatment for erectile dysfunction involves a gene construct that, when activated by blue light, triggers reliable erections.

Computational microscopy approach can 'paint' tissue samples with light

Microscopy and computer analysis can give precise information about structures and molecules inside tissues and cells without using chemical stains or dyes.

BiOS/PHOTONICS WEST 2015: Translational Research award winners tackle clinical need

At the Translational Research Lunchtime Forum during Photonics West 2015's Biomedical Optics Symposium (BiOS), four research projects were recognized as having particularly high clinical potential.

SOLID-STATE LIGHT SOURCES/FLUORESCENCE MICROSCOPY: Hybrid approach lets solid-state sources light up fluorescence

Like other applications, fluorescence microscopy wants the tantalizing flexibility of solid-state lighting.  

LIVE-CELL IMAGING: Noninvasive 3D cell imaging

A new optical microscopy approach overcomes traditional optical microscopy limitations and enables 3D tomographic exploration of living cells.

OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY/OPHTHALMOLOGY: Intraoperative OCT improves ophthalmic surgery

Integration of optical coherence tomography (OCT) into surgical microscopy is giving eye surgeons a valuable new view of their work.

FIBER-OPTIC MICROSCOPY: Bent on disease detection: Fiber optics makes miniature microscopy more flexible

Fiber-optic microscopy is promising for very early cancer detection, surgical guidance, and as a complement to standard pathology.

Think fast!

Can you control objects with your brain? Visitors to the Hamamatsu Photonics booth during SPIE Photonics West 2015 could-and did, with a little help from a system based on near-infrared spectroscopy.
