The currently fastest detector is in operation and will open completely new doors in electron microscopy. It can record images 60 times faster on the atomic scale than any existing detector. This allows scientists to film entire films of experiments instead of dealing with individual images.
The electron detector, the 4D camera, outputs a huge amount of data ̵
But so much data also means that the team can record every single electron during an experiment. "With this really big dataset, we can do" virtual "experiments on the sample – we do not have to go back and record new data from different imaging conditions," said Jim Ciston, another staff member. 19659004]
