Rods and rosettes
Released: April 16, 2013
A study that revealed new details about the geochemistry of scCO2 underground storage, made possible with EMSL’s helium ion microscope, is featured on the April 2013 cover of Microscopy and Microanalysis.
Brand new genes
Released: November 06, 2012
Proteomics experts and resources at EMSL contributed to a study published in Science centered on the discovery of new bacteria and the metabolic roles, such as carbon cycling, of bacteria in the environment.
Fungi clean up
Released: August 08, 2012
A new study has revealed the molecule at the heart of what makes fungi excellent cleanup agents for contaminated environments: the highly reactive superoxide, or O2-. The study that gave this insight was led by EMSL users from Harvard University and published in PNAS.
Viewing the Tube in 3D
Released: May 24, 2011
Researchers used EMSL's scanning transmission electron microscope and tomography capabilities to test a new geometric method to extract three-dimensional information about the size and location of small catalytic particles supported on tubular structures. Understanding these new details can critically influence catalytic systems in technologies for water purification and emissions control.
Atomic force microscope enables in situ imaging of mineral-fluid interfaces in supercritical carbon dioxide
New Views of High-pressure Meetings
Released: April 29, 2011
EMSL scientists and collaborators have developed a high-pressure atomic force microscope to enable unprecedented in-situ, atomic-scale measurements of the topography of solid surface interfaces with supercritical carbon dioxide fluids. This new capability supports scientists and engineers who are developing new solutions in carbon sequestration.
Modeling the Micro Scale
Released: July 21, 2010
Recently, scientists working to understand the microbes received a boost from two studies done with a new integrated microfluidics capability at EMSL.
Released: July 20, 2010
Analyzing soil and aqueous samples from a laboratory column study, scientists assessed how small amounts of nanoparticulate goethite in sediment affect biostimulation processes, which may enhance future bioremediation efforts.
