Ultra-high Speed Imaging

The team aims to deliver high speed imaging capability on the microsecond time-scale to explore the dynamical response of biological materials. A picture is worth a 1000 words, but a high-speed video is worth 1000’s of times more. By capturing dynamic events as they unfold in video, we will enable scientists with the method to analyse processes that are currently painstakingly frozen into samples step-by-step. The Harwell Hub’s electron source has been designed by the JEOL R&D team and will enable the needed electron flux for faster imaging in conjunction with direct electron detectors.
