Spot an in der Nanowelt: Struktur kleinster Kristalle wird sichtbar gemacht

An der Johannes Gutenberg-Universitaet Mainz wurde eine grundlegende Methode entwickelt, um Strukturen auf der Nanoebene sichtbar zu machen. Damit ist die Anordnung von Atomen und Molekuelen in unterschiedlichen Feststoffen von Zement bis hin zu Pharmaka genau festzustellen. Das noch junge Verfahren aus der Elektronenmikroskopie kann die Struktur winzigster Kristalle aufloesen.
