An international team led by researchers at the University of Barcelona developed a superresolution optical chip-size microscope that is supported by nanoLEDs functioning as a light source. The nanoLEDs can determine the resolution of the microscope without lenses, making the device highly compact and cost effective, its designers said.
The researchers designed the microscopes as part of the European project “ChipScope.” The team has also created a startup company, QubeDot GmbH, to move its nanoLED array technology to market.
The nanoLEDs that function as the base of the device are 200 nm — a size that could allow the fully functional device to be used to observe certain viruses and cellular processes in real…READ MORE
